Nominations are now closed for Student Academic Representatives to sit on the Council of the Schools, and in most cases voting is underway; see below for details.

What is the Council of the School?

The University has six Schools: 

  • School of Arts and Humanities
  • School of Biological Sciences
  • School of Clinical Medicine
  • School of Humanities and Social Sciences
  • School of Physical Sciences
  • School of Technology

Most Faculties and Institutions sit within one of these Schools, and all eligible students within that School are entitled to stand and vote for student representation; click here to see which School your Faculty is part of. Each of the Schools is governed by a Council, which makes strategic decisions which affect the courses within it.  

You may also have been invited to stand or vote for student representatives for your Faculty Board, which is a separate role.

What do Councils of the Schools Student Representatives do?

Each Council* elects one undergraduate and one graduate member, who serves from 1 Jan-31 Dec each year.  The Schools have each produced a short statement explaining what the role of the Student Representative is, which you can access from the links below: 

*NB: there is no separate election for the Council of the School of Clinical Medicine; this role is held by the student members elected for the Faculty Board of Clinical Medicine

How can I run for election?

Nominations are now closed. Students who would like to run for election return a nomination form, signed by two members of the student body who are eligible to vote in the relevant election.  Candidates are requested to include with their nomination form a brief statement for the information of voters.  These statements are posted on this website, along with details of the candidates standing for election in each School and results of the voting, once completed.

 

What support is available?
