Academic Committee

The Academic Affairs Standing Committee campaigns to improve teaching and learning, academic support and resources at the University.

There are elected reps on the Academic Standing Committee, but any student can come along, get involved in campaigns and raise an issue.


This Committee ensures that Edinburgh University Students' Association represents you by supporting Class Reps and School Councils and lobbying the University on academic issues.

Academic campaigns might seek to improve things like teaching or staff feedback or push for changes to the personal tutor system or for the use of new technology in teaching. For more information about current campaigns and how to get involved, please see our Campaign on Academic Issues page.

The Convener of the Academic Standing Committee is the EUSA Vice President Academic Affairs, Patrick Garratt. You can get in touch with him about getting involved or raising an issue by emailing, calling the Students' Association office on 0131 650 2656 or popping into the office at Potterrow.
