Join Academic Events

Join The Academic Events Team

We organise a number of high profile academic events throughout the year, including a business conference and an entrepreneurs’ conference. These are very prestigious and often involve influential, high-profile speakers. We also organise smaller subject specific events throughout the year.


If you have an interest in event management and want to gain experience in conceptualising, planning and running events, there is plenty of scope for your creative skills. You’ll meet some high-profile figures in the world of work, and get some professional skills and experience to add to your CV too. You’ll get a new insight into the world of the University and meet a wide variety of students and staff members to build your network.

 At the end of your term as a representative, you will receive a certificate to mark your contribution. You will be in line to be nominated for student representative awards, and, on request, you will receive a formal letter of recommendation to add to your CV. You will have the chance to be fully involved in all aspects of student life.

Your time at university is what you make it – and so we encourage you to grab every opportunity to get involved in extra-curricular activities. You’ll meet new friends, make memories, and gain valuable experience to enhance your CV.

There are many ways you can get involved – by joining a society or sports club to develop your interests, by serving on an academic council to have a say in how your school or department is run, or by joining the social or academic events teams to give all of our students the best and most fulfilling experience in their time here.
