School Rep Positions
Become a School Rep
Applications are now open to become a School Rep for the next academic year. You can find out more about the position of School Rep below as well as guidance on your eligibility and the application process.
What is a School Rep?
The School Rep role is the most senior academic student representative position in your School. The role is based around attending and representing the views of your School’s students at key faculty meetings for the student experience. You also get to work closely with your Head of School, other School Reps from across the University and us here at NUSU. You can complete the role effectively in less than one hour a week.
As a School Rep you would also play a crucial role in helping us at NUSU, and in particular the Education Officer and Postgraduate Officer, with our commitment to support and represent students. You will also have the opportunity to attend social events and develop your skills & knowledge. You could also receive up to £200 worth of vouchers over the year.
You must only apply for a School Rep role in the School you will you be studying in during this year. Plus you may only apply for the level that you will be studying at. For example if you are a postgraduate research student in Newcastle Law School then you can only apply for the Newcastle Law School PGR position.
You can apply as a job share. However, both members of the job share must be in the same School and at the same level of study.
If your School’s School Rep position is currently filled or you are looking for a less senior representation role, then look out for Course Rep elections.
We are particularly keen for students with the following experience, skills and personal traits to apply to become a School Rep:
- Leadership skills
- Communication skills
- The ability to work in a team
- Organisational skills
- Negotiation skills
