Here you will find useful information about your School’s student representation system.
First of all, let us introduce you to your School Representatives. Each School has two School Reps whose role is to listen to you and bring any issues you raise to the relevant staff and committee meetings, such as the Student-Staff Liaison Committee or your School Council. In Chemistry, the Undergraduate School Representative is Chen-e Low and the Postgraduate School Representative is Victoria Porley. Feel free to get in touch with Chen-e or Victoria if you feel that you have something important to say to the School! Your School also contains Class Representatives who work very closely with the School Representatives, EUSA and the staff to ensure you make the most out of your courses. Potential areas Class Reps may engage with are issues with feedback, course content, and suitability of assessment.
Whether you are looking for support in your studies, meeting like-minded students, networking or keeping up-to-date with your field of study’s latest news, academic societies are great to get involved in. In the School of Chemistry you can find ChemSoc. This is the oldest chemistry society in the world. They hold both social and academic events and are a great way to socialise with students from other years in your School.
Also look out for the Chemistry Academic Families, a network where you can socialise with other students across the School of Chemistry. It's a great way to find out more about your courses and get some support from students that have been through the highs and lows of a science degree. There will be socials and other events organised by the group, find out more here:
