that you could kick-start your career with a paid full-time or a voluntary part-time leadership role at your award-winning Students' Union? Stand up, Speak up and Be Different – influence change at Middlesex and beyond!
MDXSU is led by a President and three Vice Presidents, who are voted into their roles by their fellow students. They act as the key decision-makers from within all levels of the university and ensure that your voice is heard in a range of areas that affect you during your studies. Together, they are your Student Officer team.
Put yourself forward for a paid, FULL-TIME leadership role
As Vice President for your Faculty you would meet regularly with Faculty Leads and ensure that students studying within your Faculty are receiving the best experience possible whilst studying at Middlesex, having the opportunity to challenge when things don’t always go to plan. There are three Vice President roles available, one for each University faculty:
Vice President Arts & Creative Industries
Vice President Professional & Social Sciences
Vice President Science & Technology
You can find the job description for these roles here.
Work alongside the full-time Student Officers when you apply for a voluntary part-time leadership role. You only need to dedicate a few hours each week or each term to improving MDX, whilst gaining valuable skills. We rise by lifting other, and if we as a community don’t step up to help each other, then who will?
Put yourself forward for a voluntary, PART-TIME leadership role
Union Council is the highest student led body of MDXSU which is responsible for hearing and questioning our Student Officers, providing direction and leading on our campaigns, and deciding the Union’s policy and stance on a range of issues.
It’s made up of the Student Officers, 18 Department Reps, 7 Communities Reps, Liberation Leaders and elected Student Group Leaders. The Department Rep and Community Reps positions are open in this election.
There are 18 department reps in total, one for each department across the three Faculties - shaping MDXSU’s campaigns, policy and decision making. Work closely with Student Voice Leaders and the Student Officers and ensure students’ views are represented.
There are 7 Communities Reps in total; one for each community. These are: International, Mature, Commuter, Student Parent & Carer, Erasmus & Exchange, Postgraduate and Healthcare, with focus representing students from each community on Union Council - shaping MDXSU’s campaigns, policy and decision making.
These are a part time, voluntary roles which you can undertake alongside your studies. You will gain and develop new transferable skills, meet new people and become a role model and representative for other students!
