School Presidents

What is a School President?

School Presidents are the senior level student representation to voice the opinions of students within each school at UCLan.

They gain feedback from students and work in partnership with school senior management to create positive change on a school level. There are now two roles per School - one elected School President per School will also sit on Students' Council. 

Becoming a School President is a great way to make an impact and improve students’ academic experiences. You not only get to improve teaching and resources for future students, but also help them to achieve their goals!

As a School President you learn and develop a wide range of skills, including: leadership, negotiation, communication, decision making and networking. The role is an amazing opportunity to grow as a person- and gain knowledge that will benefit you in your future career path!

Following the changes to Faculty and School structure within the University, we will be holding the election based on the new structure that will be in place from August 2023. You can read more on the changes on the Student Hub.
