Would you like to use your knowledge and experience to enhance the experience of OU postgraduate research (PGR) students? Want to expand your CV whilst benefitting others? Apply now to be a PGR academic representative!
Application window extended!
Please be aware that this role will require you to attend 3-5 committee meetings per year during normal office hours, as well as spending 1-2 hours per week engaging with fellow representatives and Association staff.
Our academic reps, known as Central Committee Representatives, enhance the experience of current and future students as members of OU academic governance committees. At meetings, reps speak on matters from the committee papers which affect students, seeking to create positive change for students, and raise any issues as appropriate. Our PGR academic representatives also have the opportunity to help shape research policy and strategy at both a faculty and institutional level, and so these volunteer roles are a fantastic way to grow your skills in this area.
