Academic Reps are the largest group of students focused on representation activities and they help on every level of academic decision-making in the University. Led and supported by the Director of Education, students are represented via the Education Committee, Faculty PresidentsSchool Presidents, and Class Representatives.

The School Presidents help support Class Representatives within their respective Schools and also chair the relevant Student Staff Consultative Committees (SSCCs, also known as Student Staff Councils in some Schools). School Presidents also sit on the Learning and Teaching Committee within their School.

There are 350+ Class Representatives who are elected from every level of undergraduate and postgraduate study. Elections for Class Reps are held at the beginning of Semester 1, and Class Reps help deliver feedback on the student learning experience, enhancing education at St Andrews, and promoting better events and resources for students.  All Class Representatives sit on and contribute to their School's SSCCs.

All academic representatives can be nominated for the Proctor's Award that recognises amazing commitment by students in enhancing learning and teaching at the University.
