Student Academic Representatives

What are Student Academic Representatives?

Student Academic Representatives are here to ensure the student voice is heard. They are the vital link between the students, the University and the Students’ Union.

What do Student Academic Representatives do?

Student Academic Representatives listen to the students on their course; collecting their views and opinions, and attend meetings to discuss the views of the students to relevant academic staff, to achieve a positive outcome. The University relies upon student feedback to provide the best service and facilities for current and future students.
