  • Expanding your knowledge of teaching and learning pedagogies in higher education.
  • Contributing to academic research, which may lead to impactful research outputs.
  • Gaining experience as leaders or ‘change agents’ – enhancing your confidence, as well as broadening your communication, management, collaboration and research skills.
  • Improving your personal and professional networking opportunities within the wider student, academic and professional community.
  • Greater engagement and empowerment.
  • Improved employability.
  • Financial support in the form of a bursary.

Darragh Sutcliffe"Being on the StEP committee as a student representative has really allowed me to have a meaningful impact on how my University operates.

It’s a great feeling to know that the University doesn’t just listen to students, but actively works to turn their input into real change and progress."
