Academic Representation is a crucial part to your University and Union experience. Our Academic Reps are here to represent your academic interests and work with the University staff to create positive change for our students. Every year, students can apply for these roles, and once elected into the role, will serve as your leading representatives for you to contact about any academic issues you feel students are facing within certain aspects of the academic experience at the University.
At the School and Institute level, you are represented by Course Reps. They gather feedback about your programme and raise it at the Student-Staff Committee, or SSC (in your School or Institute this might be called a Student Voice Committee, or SVC). These meetings are led by a Student Chair, and sometimes a Student Secretary. At the meeting, Course Reps and staff will work together to address the issues raised. Course Reps should feedback to you on the outcomes of these meetings.
At the Faculty level, you are represented by School Reps. They attend and give feedback to the Faculty Education Committee (for taught programmes) and the Faculty Postgraduate Research Committee (for research programmes) and also feedback to your SSC.
