Student Reps gather feedback on any academic issue from their fellow students and work together with University staff to solve problems and make changes for the better.
The Student Representative Programme includes:

The Students' Union provides free, confidential and independent advice to all students via our Advice Centre.
You can discuss anything with our Advisers such as academic issues, money worries and housing concerns.
Any concerns you discuss with our Advisers will remain confidential and will not be disclosed to the University (without your consent).
Academic issues may include: disputing marks, where to get help if you can't meet a deadline, need a break from your course or are thinking about leaving University.
If our Advisers can't solve your issue, they will signpost you to a service that can!
We raise your voice
The Students' Union is here to amplify your voice with the University.
We conduct lots of research projects throughout the year to measure your academic experience so we can the lobby the University to make changes on your behalf.
Last academic year, the Students' Union Research team received over 3,000 responses to various surveys, interviews, and online questions about your academic experience.

contained 20 separate recommendations by the Students' Union to the University, urging them to take action to improve your experience at Sheffield Hallam.
Working in partnership with the University, improvements have now been made in the last 12 months, in areas such as 'assessment and feedback', 'teaching resources', and 'food and drink prices at University outlets'.
