We’re looking for new members to come onto the Whatuni Advisory Board and we’re accepting applications right now!
So, what is the advisory board, and why should you join it? We asked some of the current members to explain:
About the Student Advisory Board
Made up of sixth formers and college students, university students and SU Presidents from across England and Wales, the board meet in London three times a year (usually on a Saturday) to discuss all the latest issues that are affecting them. There may also be additional Skype meetings throughout the year which you will be invited to participate.
From political issues such as higher tuition fees, unconditional offers and Brexit, to problems finding decent student accommodation, to health and wellbeing issues, everything matters to us.
Being on the board, you will get the chance to:
Talk and debate about the issues that matter to you with other students
Write or produce content for for Whatuni
Judge a Whatuni Student Choice Award
Gain vital work experience for your CV
Travel expenses will be covered and we’ll use your views to ensure we continue to deliver everything students need when they’re looking for a university or thinking about higher education.

Why Should I Apply to the Whatuni Student Advisory Board?
Being on the board means a ton of opportunities will be at your feet.
Last year the board members provided vital feedback which have positively affected our site, judged and presented a Whatuni Student Choice Award, spoke on a panel in front of the movers and shakers of the education sector, wrote articles, and basically made a huge difference to other students.
So, if you’re in sixth form this will be a great experience to include in your personal statement and will differentiate you from other university applicants.
And for uni students, taking part in our student advisory board will provide you with critical experience on your CV to help you land and nail your first big job interview.
