Who can become a Student Trustee? 

This is a part-time role open to all registered Middlesex University London students, student trustees must be students alongside doing the role.  

Student Trustee Responsibilities

As a non-profit, charitable organisation, the work of Middlesex Students' Union is overseen by a Trustee Board - MDXSU's highest governing body. 

If you love the idea of making high-level decisions for an award-winning organisation with 18,000 members, or you want to learn more about business and strategy in a real environment (or maybe put your existing knowledge to good use), then this is the position for you. 

If elected as one of our Student Trustees, you will attend Trustee Board meetings roughly twice a term throughout the year, sitting alongside the four full-time Student Officers and our expert external trustees to discuss finances, strategy and long term goals for your Students' Union. 

This is a part-time student role, which you can fulfill alongside your studies.
