School Reps

Each School at the University elects two Representatives – an Undergraduate School Representative and a Postgraduate School Representative. Their collective role is to represent their students to the School, the wider University and the Students’ Association.


The Undergraduate School Rep represents the needs of Undergraduate students, from first year to final year of UG study.


The Postgraduate School Rep represents the needs of Postgraduate students, including both taught students and research students at Master’s and doctoral level.


The School Reps are elected in the student elections which take place in March (for UG positions) and October (for PG positions). You should go to your School Rep if you identify an issue which crosses multiple courses and programmes. Relevant school-wide issues could include:

  • - Provision of study space
  • - Transport
  • - Teaching resources e.g. lecture facilities
  • - Teaching methods
  • - Access to facilities
  • - Communication
