How Academic Representation Works

The Education Network looks after academic representation at your Students’ Union. The Network is made up of almost 900 Student Reps along with your Education and Postgraduate Officers. The aim is to bring about positive changes for you and your fellow students based on the student views you represent. For a diagram that shows the structure of the Education Network, click here.

UG Education Reps

Education Reps are elected to represent all the undergraduate Course Reps in your school or department, by supporting and collaborating with them on campaigns to create positive change. Acting as the link between Course Reps and your Students’ Union Education Officer, Education Reps meet with your Education Officer and Course Reps regularly to ensure that University-wide decision making that they’re involved with is resulting in positive change for their student body.
