Become a Student Rep

As a student or postgraduate researcher at Birmingham, you’re represented by a Student Rep. Your Rep is here to empower you to make the changes you want to see in your academic life and they can help you to make a real difference in your programme, School or College.

The Guild and the University work together to help recruit Student Reps, and you can find out more about the different Rep roles – and what they do for you - here

What to get stuck in to shaping your education yourself or think you can represent your fellow students? Find out more about how to nominate yourself for a Student Rep role below…

The University and Guild of Student have put regulations and procedures in place to ensure the election of Student Reps is run in a free, fair and consistent manner. These cover how these elections should run, what happens if there is an election tie and how you can raise an election complaint if you feel a regulation has been broken. You can find these procedures below:

If you have any questions regarding these procedures, please contact a member of our Student Voice team by emailing

Student Rep elections happen at different times throughout the year. You can take a look below for a list of any posts that are currently available that you’re eligible for!

If you can’t see any roles below, it may be that your Student Rep elections are run by the University. If you think this might be the case, drop us an email via and we’ll be able to point you in the right direction.

All you need to do to nominate (or “apply”) for one of the roles below is:

  • Select which role you’d like to apply for
  • Confirm you agree to the terms and conditions of the Student Rep role
  • Write a 200 word nomination statement which should include why you would make a good Student Rep and why you want the role. This statement will then be shown to your cohort if a vote needs to be taken to help them decide who they want to vote for.

When nominations close ,you will be told if you have got the role or if a vote needs to take place. If a vote takes place, you can then start to promote yourself amongst your cohort!
