March saw our biggest elections campaign ever! More of you put yourselves forward and voted for who should #LeadYourDSU than any previous election.  Think you could make a difference for fellow students?

We now have more opportunities to represent your course mates and fellow De Montfort University (DMU) students with our #LeadYourDSU By-Elections. Nominate yourself for the roles of:

Course Representatives

Every course at DMU can have a Course Representative. They are a student picked by their class mates via on online election. Course reps are trained to help you with any issues you face at university. They attend key meetings with academic staff and are responsible for letting academics know about the key issues students face. They should also feedback to students when changes are made. 

Some courses have already elected their Course Representatives for next year, however there are still hundreds of vacancies to fill across others.The role of Course Representative is voluntary.

Mature Students’ Representative  or  Postgraduate Students’ Representative

These are part-time, voluntary roles for DMU students to carry out alongside their studies.   The successful candidates will ensure that DSU and DMU take the needs and input of mature and postgraduate students, respectively, into account when making key decisions.  They also work to raise awareness of the issues that affect these groups of students in particular.  There will be one successful candidate for Mature Students’ Representative and one for Postgraduate Students’ Representative.

School Representative Coordinators

School Representative Coordinators (SRC’s) are students who work to make change and academically represent fellow DMU students at the highest level.  Inputting into committees and meeting with their respective head of school, SRC’s are vital to the continuous improvement of DMU. SRC’s receive a bursary of £600 per year.
