Welcome to the School of Informatics Representation page.
 

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 Informatics, the Undergraduate School Representative is Qais Patankar and the Postgraduate School Representative is Philip Cumner.

Feel free to get in touch with your school reps and your class reps if you feel that you have something important to say to the School!

The school reps and class reps have weekly meetings with Informatics, every Wednesday at 1pm. Send any and all of your course/school concerns over to the school reps or your class reps, and they will make sure you get the most out of university.

The School Council is a democratic structure and forum that enables you to take a proactive approach to your student life. It is a way for you and your coursemates to voice your opinions about what is going on in your School, and you are entitled to bring up issues and ideas that you consider relevant to the student experience in these meetings. You can ask your School Representatives to talk on behalf of you, or you can speak for yourself and count on their help to bring these issues forward and support you. They take place at least once a semester, so keep an eye out for updates from your Reps and don’t forget to attend – the more students that show up, the better! Last year the School of Informatics had an active School Council which was involved in assessing the Taught Programme Review.
 

We are currently developing the peer support provision across Informatics. If you are interested in getting involved please contact Katie Scott at katie.scott@eusa.ed.ac.uk

In addition to Peer Learning opportunities, you can make use of Academic Societies implemented in your School. 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 CompSoc is the place to be! This society offers social events, tech talks, workshops, hackathons, pub crawls and games nights throughout the year.

There is also the student-run course resources website: Better Informatics. Visit this page for lots of course resources & past paper solutions.
