What happens next

Assessment of applications

Applications will be assessed by a committee of representatives from the Office of Student Life, faculties, the Library, Marketing and Communications, the Sustainability Team, and a current student. We’ll be looking to ensure that events and initiatives are diverse and don’t duplicate existing activities at the University. We aim to assess applications and notify applicants of the outcome by email on 27 June 2024.

Ongoing support for successful applicants

Student Life will run a training session for successful applicants with tips and tricks on how to capture the University experience, maximise registrations and engagement, inspire your audience and lead a team. Student Life staff will also organise regular check-ins to ensure your project is on track for success.
