If you are looking to develop and use your leadership skills and like to have an overview of everything that is happening, this could be the perfect position for you!
If you are passionate about learning and teaching, and see that the educational experience is central to your university experience, you could be the next VP Education!
If you are excited about all of the extra activities university has to offer such as clubs, societies, and volunteering this position could be a great fit for you!
If you know university can be a tough time for students and want to help ensure students are cared for, why not apply to be the next Welfare and Wellbeing?
All of these roles are for memberships of different boards and committees that influence the PGR experience at UWS. This is a great opportunity to see the inner workings of the university, get even more experience in an academic setting, and really make a difference for yourself and other PGR students.
If you want to get involved but don't want to commit to a whole year then these could be the roles for you! Every year the National Union of Students in Scotland, and the National Union of Students UK hold conferences, and every students' union sends a delegation of students to debate and vote on issue impacting students everywhere.
Why should I stand as a student representative?
Any of these positions are an excellent opportunity to:
Make a Difference – improve UWS for your fellow students by making sure that students are heard!
Develop Skills – you’ll get an opportunity to attend meetings, work in partnership with university staff, and develop your skills for the workplace.
Get training and support – Whatever role you stand for your Students’ Union will support you to campaign, and if you’re elected your Students’ Union is here to support you in your role.
Why should I care about the Elections?
We believe that students should be at the heart of everything that happens at UWS – Elections make sure that the student representatives truly represent the views of students, and that the student voice is heard at every level of the university.
How do I nominate myself?
When elections are open you can simply log in to this election page and choose which positions to nominate yourself for. Make sure you upload a manifesto to let students know what you stand for and why they should vote for you!
