Academic Reps


Friday 18th - Friday 25th January 

Interested in giving your fellow students a voice and improving the University and Students’ Union? There are still some Academic Rep positions up for grabs!

Academic Reps gather feedback from the students in their school or on their course and work alongside NTSU and NTU to make positive changes.

Nominating yourself is an opportunity to make a difference and develop transferable skills such as teamwork, communication and time management that will boost your CV and make you more employable.  

Please note: our main Academic Rep Elections took place in October. The January elections are for courses starting in January and vacant positions so if your course or school isn’t listed, your reps have already been elected. Visit your NOW page to find out who they are.

Below you’ll find out more information about the Course and School Rep positions and how you can nominate yourself.

To become an Academic Rep, you will have to nominate yourself here . You'll need to prepare a short statement to support your nomination, detailing why you would be a great Academic Rep and why people should vote for you. Nominations close at midday on Friday 25th January.  

We need both undergraduate and postgraduate Academic Reps to represent their fellow students.

As a postgraduate Academic Rep, you’ll attend dedicated postgraduate focus groups and have access to tailored support from your VP Postgraduate Officer. You’ll also receive a personalised certificate from the Students’ Union instead of a HEAR Accreditation but, otherwise, the roles are the same. 

If you have any questions about becoming a Postgraduate Academic Rep, contact your VP Postgraduate, Shak at

Both the School Rep and Course Rep roles are an opportunity to:

  • Make important changes to your university experience
  • Work alongside academics and build your professional network
  • Develop new skills that’ll help you stand out to employers

Sound like a lot of responsibility? Don’t worry, we’ll give you all the training you need.

Your peers will be able to vote for you here on our website once voting opens on Monday 29th January. They’ll have until Friday 1st February to have their say and you can vote for yourself too!

We’ll be in touch to let you know if you’ve been successful shortly afterwards.
