Student Trustee

How to become a Student Trustee

Historically, appointment of our Student Trustees has been via application and interview. However, due to a recent motion that was passed at Student Council on the 9th March, our way of appointing Student Trustees has changed and our Student Trustees will now be elected into their roles.

The nominations will be opening between 26th April - 7th May, with the Summer Elections taking place between 10 - 14th May. We are now inviting expressions of interest for the role of Student Trustee.

About the role

We are currently looking for five Student Trustees. Each Student Trustee will be appointed for a period of two years starting in August 2021. If you are only here for one year, you can still put yourself forward, as we will re-advertise your role when it becomes vacant.

We have put together a Student Trustee Pack that contains information about Warwick SU, our strategic direction and most of all, more information about the role of a Student Trustee.
