Become A Rep

As a Rep you can make real change and help fellow students get the most from their course.

With ongoing training and development opportunities, you'll be supported to make change by both Hull University Union and the University of Hull. Take a look below to see exactly why being involved in academic representation can help you, and other students, so much:


Course Reps are responsible for representing the academic views and concerns of those on their course. Read the Course Rep role description.

Faculty Reps represent students at faculty level and work closely with Course Rep Leaders, University staff and the President of Education.

This is a fantastic volunteer opportunity for experience and CV building and is perfect for those with drive, initiative, and determination to play a vital role in student representation. Faculty Reps work with senior staff at the University of Hull and have a seat on Union Council, enabling them to have a say in Hull University Union's governance and policy.

Deputy Faculty Reps will work closely with the Faculty Rep and support them on projects and campaigns, also stepping in to attend—and in some cases chair—meetings, where necessary.

Appointment to both roles is on an annual basis, through a process of application and interview. We have now filled 3 of the 4 Faculty Rep positions, and will reopen applications for our vacancy in the Faculty of Health Sciences in September 2020. We will also open Deputy Faculty Rep applications then too.

More information can be found in the role descriptions below:

If you would like to find out more about any of these positions, please email [email protected].



As of the 2019/20 academic year, postgraduate taught and research students will have a separate academic representation system from undergraduates, in the hope that this will better meet students' needs.

All faculties will have both a Postgraduate Taught Faculty Rep and Postgraduate Research Faculty Rep. Read the Postgraduate Faculty Rep role description. To nominate yourself for one of these positions, please complete the online nomination form.

If you would like to find out more about these positions, or postgraduate representation in general, please email [email protected].
