Student Voice Leaders represent their coursemates, and have the power to make change on their course and at Middlesex University more widely.
At the start of each academic year, all students will elect at least 1 Student Voice Leader to represent their year of their course. Throughout the year, you can go to them to suggest ideas and give feedback about your module, programme or wider University experience. They'll then work with your Programme Leader and other University staff to find solutions and make your time at Middlesex the best it can be.
Being a Student Voice Leader is an incredible opportunity to be part of a thriving student leader community and work closely with the University and Students' Union to create changes that students want to see and it could be you!
It's a flexible, part-time role requiring only six hours of your time per term, with no prior experience necessary - MDXSU will give you all the training and support you need. As well as helping to improve your course, you'll also improve your employability and get to know more people on your course, MDXSU and academic staff! To find out more, view the Student Voice Leader Opportunity Profile or visit our FAQs page. You can also find the SVL Code of Conduct here.
As we're a democratic organisation, we run elections for SVLs at the start of each academic year. Nominations will open Monday 7th September and will close at 5pm Thursday 15th October. If only one person runs for the role, you will automatically become the Student Voice Leader! If more than one person runs, it will go to an election from Monday 19th - Thursday 22nd October. You can nominate yourself here.
The following courses are currently closed for further nominations. MDXSU and the University have taken the decision to roll over SVLs from last year given the current circumstances in order to engage the SVLs and ensure they can play a fundamental role as academic partners and co-designers to assist in planning for what learning & teaching was going to look like in the academic year 2020-21.
You will have an SVL on your course by the end of October when you'll be able to see who they are on this site. If you have any feedback before then, you can email your Programme Leader or one of your student officers who will be happy to help!
