Improve your representation! Be a Student Rep…
Being a Student Rep gives you the chance to build up your communication and negotiation skills, gain confidence in public speaking, and develop a solution focused approach to resolving issues. It also shows that your achievements aren’t just academic – something employers are definitely looking for!
The Students’ Association are here to help you fulfil your role as a Student Rep as well as develop new skills and tackle the challenges you may face along the way. You will have access to training and development workshops throughout the year, get a free hoodie and be able to record any hours of you work you do ion your role as volunteer hours.
As a student rep you will be invited to participate in Student Congress, Student Parliament and other democratic events, you may be nominated for a volunteer award and you can always use your experience to run in our annual student elections in March.
Class Reps gather the views and concerns of other students in their class and feed them back to the lecturer directly, to the department at Student Staff Liaison Committee meetings (SSLC) and to the Students Association. They will work closely with Faculty Reps, ensuring a two way communication to and from students about all issues affecting students’ learning. Finally, they sit on Student Parliament, where they influence and direct the work of the Student Association throughout the year.
Faculty Reps represent students at Faculty level meetings, they find out the concerns of students through proactive engagement with class reps, run campaigns on faculty wide issues and work with the Vice President Education on university wide, local and national campaigns. They are critical in feeding back developments to students and the Students’ Association.
Halls Reps help students get the most out of living in University accommodation; they represent students’ views and concerns to University Residences, signpost and support students in Halls with individual issues, organise social events and help build a sense of community. Hall Reps have a say on how the Students' Association runs, and often run events and campaigns for students in Halls.
