Voice Opportunities

On this page you will find links to all the opportunities we have available in SU Voice and how to get in touch with your representatives. Click on the relevant link to find out more or email su-voice@leicester.ac.uk to discuss them and more.


Academic Reps

Each course and school has representatives that help amplify the student voice to make sure you are getting the support , material, and education you want as well as deserve. Click here to find out more about the Academic Representative system. If you are a new student who has commenced your course in January 2023, and wish to become a Course Rep, email coursereps@leicester.ac.uk


Executive and Part-time Officers (PTOs)

Each year, we elect Executive Officers and PTOs to represent students by running campaigns relevant to students. This could be to make extenuating circumstances easier, improving services like the library, running events, creating new training for staff on how to better support their students, or even running campaigns nationally with other officers across SUs. To find out and/or get in touch with your Officers click here . If you are interested in becoming a PTO or an Executive Officer then nominations will open on February 1 2023.

Network Reps

Part of Student Council includes our 7 networks which are chaired by PTOs (above). However, they can't do it all! All students who identify with the networks can come along but they also have their own reps. They work with the PTOs to run events and campaigns that positively impact the experiences of those students.

To find out more about the work of the Newtorks click here or if you would like to volunteer to be a rep or sign-up for Network updates, fill in our short form here.


Scrutiny Committee

The Students' Union has a lot of representatives and someone needs to make sure their work is actually positive for students! Scrutiny Committee regularly checks in on part-time and full-time Officers to find out what work they are doing and how it is helping students at Leicester.

Peer Mentoring

University can be an amazing expereince but also overwhelming. The Students' Union runs a scheme called Peer Mentoring that pairs new students up with a student already at the University.  If you are an international PG student who has or is joining the University in January 2023 then you should have received an email from the peer mentoring team to let you know who your Mentor is.  If you have any queries regarding the scheme then email peermentoring@leicester.ac.uk.
