Your Student Voice

Academic Reps (sometimes called Class or Course Reps) represent their classmates and peers on the issues affecting them in their education, especially on academic issues like course material, online resources, or other things that arise during your programme of study!

They work with their lecturers and academic staff to bring up relevant issues and concerns, to try out new ideas, and make suggestions and plans for positive change in your course, Department, or even across the college. Reps also work to bring issues to the Students’ Union when they might not have been resolved with staff. 

They can also get involved in all the great campaigns and initiatives the Students’ Union runs to engage students and to support them during their education.

You might even have some ideas for the Students’ Union that they could work on!
