Want to change something about your education or pass on feedback about your student experience?
Your Academic Representatives are a great place to start if you have an idea to shape your education!
We have different types of Academic Reps who work at course, department, and faculty level. They gather your opinions and work with staff at the university to act on your priorities and make your education better.
The different reps do slightly different jobs and represent your interests at all levels of decision-making:
- Course Representatives represent students on a taught programme of study, an undergraduate degree or a master's.
- Research Student Representatives represent groups of Postgraduate Research Students.
- Lead Department Representatives take on a role leading on representation in your department.
- Faculty Representatives are elected roles that represent students at the Faculty level.
Filter through previous Rep wins and see how some of our thousands of previous Reps have achieved progress and brought about positive change for the students they represent.
Each month we choose an Academic Rep who has gone above and beyond to represent their peers and award them Rep of the Month, who receive a prize and are entered into the Rep of the Year competition. If you want to become Rep of the Month, please navigate to the 'Tell us about your work' on the Academic Representatives Moodle.
Each year there are winners in each Faculty for our Annual Rep of the Year award.
