Faculty Reps represent students at faculty level and work closely with Subject Reps, 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, as well as stepping in to chair and attend some meetings where necessary.


Appointment to both roles is on an annual basis, through a process of application and interview.

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. Please read the role description for this role here.


Each faculty will hold regular Postgraduate Open Forums, where all postgrad students are invited to attend and share feedback throughout the year.


To nominate yourself for one of these positions, please fill in this short form.
