School Presidents

School Presidents make representation on behalf of students within their School. They help to support the Class Reps within their Schools and also chair the relevant Student Staff Consultative Committees.
Launched in 2010, School Presidents have become an institution in delivering feedback to the University and in enhancing the student learning experience. There are 21 School Presidents, covering the wide range of subjects taught at St Andrews. We have also introduced one Convener in Modern Languages for each language in 2015.
The School Presidents meet together with the Faculty Presidents and the Director of Education regularly at Education Committee meetings to address thematic concerns and issues that are identified in multiple subjects across the University. Twice in each semester, the School Presidents also meet with the Proctor, the Deans of Arts & Divinity and Science, and the Rector at the School Presidents' Forum. The two Faculty Presidents also sit on the SRC and the University's Academic Council.
