Student Panel Advisers bring the student perspective to the University re-validation process. Being a Student Panel Adviser will provide you with a unique opportunity to be directly involved in the enhancement of courses at Westminster.

By representing the student voice in the re-validation process, you will be playing a part in making sure the academic experience of the student body is continually improving, as well as developing your own employability skills.

Student Panel Advisers will receive a standard fee in recognition of their contribution to the re-validation process.

The role

As a Student Panel Adviser you are expected to:

  • Attend a briefing session
  • Read course documents in advance of the event and identify any particular questions, issues or concerns that you wish to raise at the final meeting
  • Attend the final meeting and actively contribute to the discussions at the event

How to apply

Any University of Westminster student (not including students on courses at partner institutions) can be considered for the role of Student Panel Adviser providing the student has experience of being a University student representative or a course representative. 

In addition, the student member must have attended at least one School Staff Student Exchange (SSSE) meeting. We are currently considering applications for Student Panel Advisers for the 2018 and 2019 re-validation cycles. If you are interested in applying for the role of Student Panel Adviser and meet the criteria, please complete the application form and submit to the Quality and Standards Office.

All completed application forms should be submitted to [email protected].

Student Panel Advisers will be selected jointly by the Quality and Standards Office and the UWSU.

Please note: In order to ensure compliance with the right to work regulations, all University of Westminster students are limited to a maximum of 20 hours per week employment (this includes volunteering) by the University. If you are an overseas student studying in the UK on a Tier 4 visa you will need to take particular care to comply with the maximum number of hours you are permitted to work. Normally this is 20 hours per week during term time. If you have multiple employments, please ensure that the combined total of hours worked in any given week do not exceed the limit stated on your Tier 4 BRP card.
