The rep system within a School
Reps are elected by you, from the students within your course. All student reps meet up with the relevant staff in their School at least once a semester as part of the Student-Staff Panel to discuss all the feedback that they have had from students. Once the reps have attended the meeting they will feedback to you any relevant outcomes from the meeting, or they may discuss with you in advance of the meeting any feedback you wish to give, or your views on a particular topic on the Student-Staff Panel agenda.
The diagram below depicts how the student representation system works within a School, though every School is different and may have one or several Student-Staff Panels. It is up to the Senior Reps (one undergraduate, one postgraduate elected by and from all the reps in your School), to liaise with all the other Chairs and reps to make sure they are up-to-date on all the current issues and successes within the School, so that they can feed them into Academic Council which is run by the Academic and University Affairs Officer in the Students’ Union and sits three times a year.
