Please see below information you need to know about student representation.

About Student Representation Scheme

The Student Representation Scheme comprises two specific roles: Course Representatives and Student Subject Coordinators. The Students’ Union coordinate the scheme and will provide separate training events for both roles. 

As we are a small Students’ Union we ask academic course leaders to elect up to two course representatives per level to represent the group. From this we ask you to give this information to the academic services administrator to upload into SITS - we need this information as soon as possible so we can get Course Reps trained in good time.

The reporting team at the university will run a report for the SU and the SU will contact students with training dates for them to sign up to. Please read the Election Process flowchart for more information, visit the Rep Hub under Student Voice on the Students’ Union’s website, or if you have any questions please email

Voice it

Our new Online feedback Tool! 

We’ve reduced the time it takes to log your feedback, by creating a new super quick, super simple form to better hear your voice and to have it actioned quicker!

What is done with feedback/data?

Feedback is analysed and reports are sent monthly to SSCs, all professional department leads and School heads.  Reports will be sent to Academic Subject Leaders to be uploaded onto the course portal three times during the academic year. Course reps are able to request a report before their meeting. We advise that you organise meetings in accordance to ensure the student voice is being heard. 

Who can use feedback tool?

All students can complete the feedback tool! We encourage Course Reps to use it when they are talking to their students

Change it

This tool enables you to submit ideas to Student Council to be voted and acted upon. They need 20-25 up votes before it can be brought before the Student Council.



Elections will look a little different this year please familarise yourself with the Course Reps Student Guide below and use the other links at the bottom of the page.



Voting will be online this year. Your In-Class Virtual Elections will take place in October and you will be sent a voting link by your course leader via email or on your course module pages.
