UG & PG Student Voice Committees

Would you be interested in representing the students on your Degree Programme? Each year, we recruit Student Representatives who can speak on behalf of their peers at our Student Voice Committees (SVC) and Board of Studies meetings. As a Student Representative, you are expected to attend all SVC and Board of Studies meetings (8 in total).

The SVC is made up of both student and staff representatives. It aims to improve communication between the two and discuss matters of mutual concern. Any issues raised by the SVC are then passed to the Board of Studies for more formal discussion. 

We require one or two Student Representatives from each degree programme and stage, both at undergraduate at postgraduate level.

If you would like to express an interest in becoming a Student Representative please complete this form when it opens at 9am on Monday 28th September 2020. Please note, the form will close to applications at 5pm on Friday 16th October 2020.
