Featured Opportunities

Apply now to be part of these exciting opportunities!

There are lots of different ways for you to get involved with the Students' Union during your time at RGU, many of which also provide you with the chance to represent and support your fellow students.

Each year our Freshers Team and Welfare Squad plays a vital role in helping new students settle into university life during the first few weeks. Primarily, these volunteers are there to ensure everyone has a fun introduction to the city and to university life, but sometimes things don’t go exactly to plan, and our teams are often the first point of contact for students with concerns. They provide a friendly face, a sympathetic ear and information on how to resolve any situations which may arise.

We also have a number of year-long opportunities, including Equality Champions and International Reps. Read more about these different roles below, and get in touch with us if you need any more information.

This means that a typical household on a default energy tariff could expect a bill increase of £96 per year.

This could affect around 11 million homes in England, Wales, and Scotland (Northern Ireland sets its own cap).

The cap for prepayment meter customers will increase by £87 per year, affecting around 4 million households.
