Class Representatives are elected student volunteers
and they are at the core of the academic representation system within the Students' Association. They are elected across the University at every level of undergraduate and postgraduate study to enhance learning and teaching and to feedback to their School on the student learning experience. Class Reps work directly with their teaching staff on a regular basis and have the power to advocate on: curriculum, learning resources, learning and teaching, assessment and feedback, student progression and achievement, guidance, and support.
Class Representatives are trained
and led by the Director of Education
. They work closely with their School President
to deliver change within their Schools. Class Representatives sit on their School's Student Staff Consultative Committee to work directly with the teaching faculty on academic issues.
