The Students’ Union exists to make the Hallam student experience better. We think it’s really important that students’ opinions are listened to: at the University, in the local community, and within the Union’s own decision-making.
Our community of student representatives are the ones who make this happen - they make sure the University listens to student concerns and that the Students' Union is working on issues students care about. They not only get to improve things for thousands of their fellow students, but they also gain excellent skills and experience for their CVs. Any student can get involved in this community, and there are several ways:
Shaping decisions through democracy and campaigning
The Students' Union is independent of the University, and we work to champion students' rights and give them the best university experience possible. Getting involved in our representation gives you the chance to help set our direction and work on projects related to wellbeing, student experience, social issues, political issues and more. No previous experience is needed, and many of these positions will be elected in October 2020.

Dedicated Representation at every level
Other students volunteer to be Representatives for their course or department, helping to ensure that your academic experience meets your expectations, and encouraging community and dialogue among students and University staff. Any student can be a Course Rep, and you’ll be able to get involved from September - click below to read more.
