Become a Faculty Rep

Nominations for student representatives on the MML Faculty Board are now open.

Two undergraduates and one graduate are elected each year to represent the student body on the Faculty Board. The Faculty Board meets twice a term to discuss a range of issues regarding the running of the Faculty. Our student representatives have an important voice in MML and becoming a rep is a worthwhile addition to your CV. Faculty Reps have the opportunity to boost their leadership skills, shape the way that studies are delivered, and engage with important decision-making that has a direct impact on their peers.

CUSU provides training and support for Faculty Reps throughout the year. Robert Cashman, CUSU Education Officer, will be holding a drop-in session on Wednesday 2 December, 12-1pm, in the Lecturer’s Common Room in the RFB for those interested in running. He will be able to provide more information on student representation and the election process, and drinks and snacks will be provided.


This role is for Lent and Easter Term 2016 and is to Class f of the Faculty Board ('Student Members'). Nomination forms are available to download here (Word document), and are also available to collect from the Faculty Office (room 121). These must be returned to the Faculty Office, signed by the nominee, the proposer and the seconder. Please note that all nominees must produce a brief manifesto.

The deadline for receiving nominations is 16:00 on Friday 22 January 2016, and the election will be held one week later, on Friday 29 January 2016.
