Could you use your experience as a student to make a difference to our work with universities and colleges? Now is the perfect time to work with a national organisation to help shape and influence our work with universities and colleges to help meet the needs of students across the UK.

About the HEA

The Higher Education Academy (HEA) is a national body for teaching in higher education. We work with universities and colleges to help ensure students in the UK get a world-class education and the best possible experience while they’re studying. We are looking for 15 national student advisers to join our Student Advisory Forum.

National student advisers

Become a national student adviser and you will use your insight, communication skills and judgement to advise us on teaching-related issues that matter to students and on aspects of our work that affect them directly.

Feeding into the HEA’s senior team, you will gain first-class experience of working with a national organisation to shape and influence its work with universities and colleges across the UK. Expenses will be paid.


As a national student adviser you will:

  • prepare for and attend three meetings in York over a period of 18 months;
  • advise on teaching-related issues that matter to students;
  • advise on aspects of our work that have direct impact for students;
  • suggest ways for the HEA to develop existing and new ways of working with students.
Who we’re looking for

You’ll be a full or part-time student in UK higher education who:

  • can demonstrate an interest in developing teaching, higher education and the student experience;
  • can assimilate information and experience to advise on our work;
  • can attend the meetings scheduled on the 5 March and 25 June 2013
We are keen that our Student Advisory Forum reflects the diverse range of student experiences and encourage applications from all those studying for higher education awards, whether that be at undergraduate or postgraduate level, UK (home) or international, part-time, full-time or distance learning, or through college-based higher education. We welcome applications from all students of all backgrounds.
