The Students' Union exists to ensure that you have the University experience that you deserve, both inside and outside the classroom.

We want to equip students to have meaningful dialogue with University staff about their experience, and we think that Student Representatives are the most effective way of achieving this.

We want to make sure that students' feedback is addressed at the right time, and at the right place - whether that's at a Course, Department, College or University level. To make this happen, we've created a brand new, paid Departmental Representative role, to represent students' issues within their Academic Department. 

Our new Department Reps will work alongside the College Officers, Course Reps and students on their course to improve the Student Experience.

Applications for the Department Rep role for 2020/21 are now closed - check back here for more information on how they're getting on!
