To become an SVR, you will need to gather five nominations from current students from within your Faculty, each studying on a different course. This is a great opportunity to start networking with students as you will be required to represent their views at a Faculty level. Remember: the students must provide their signature! If you are NOT currently a Course Representative or a Student Voice Representative, you should also provide a nomination from an academic member of staff (one of your lecturers for instance), along with the five nominations from students.
