Representational Structure

 

Academic Representation

At least one Course Rep exists for each Degree Programme or cluster of interconnected courses, consisting of fewer than 50 students per year. For Programmes with more than 50 students per year, at least two Course Reps will be appointed.

Reps are responsible for receiving and collating student feedback relating to their academic course as well as passing this information on to relevant staff or volunteers as appropriate.

The representation system is based on the work of over 430 Course Reps.

However, each department has a Department Rep who is the lead for Course Reps and works closely with College Reps that sit on College Academic Committees, feeding important issues discussed in the department up to a higher level. 

The Union's Education Officer, works closely with all the Reps and raises topics that require attention to the highest levels within the University.
