What is Student Representation?
Edinburgh University Students’ Association is led and directed by you, its 40,000+ student members. All Edinburgh University students automatically become members of the Students' Association when you enrol for your degree.
The Students' Association exists to represent your views, making sure that your experience as a student is the best it can be. The main way we do this is through elected Student Representatives (or ‘Reps’), who gather your views about various aspects of your studies and University life in general. They communicate this feedback to staff members, suggest solutions, and work together with staff to bring about change.
It is vital that all students have a say about what aspects of their life at University work well and what can be improved. You can work with your Programme Rep
, School Rep
, Sabbatical Officers and other elected Reps
. You might get the occasional e-mail looking for feedback, or see them out and about on your campus doing outreach. They love to hear what you have to say so don't be shy! You can take part in decision making at Student Council, get involved in campaigns or projects, or submit a referendum question.
