Student elections

Students can nominate to be elected to the University Council, Academic Senate, Faculty Boards and the University of Newcastle Students’ Association (UNSA).

Should you be elected, you will need to attend meetings, read all relevant information and be prepared to share your perspective as a student.

Student representatives serve for a period of one year from 1 January to 31 December.

You can nominate for a range of positions – in fact, you are encouraged to nominate for all positions you are interested in. You will receive an email to your student account at the beginning of the nomination period outlining the nomination process.
