What are School Representatives

School Reps oversee the work of the course reps and support them in their role. They are at the centre of the academic representation system within their respective school and will attend various committees and meetings while encouraging their course reps to attend the necessary events too.

School Reps also focus on encouraging their peers to complete various surveys and promoting elections and award nomination periods. For example, NSS, SSTAR Awards, UPSU Elections so that feedback within their school is as comprehensive as possible.

UPSU support these academic reps through training and guidance to make the changes you want to see.


How to become a School Rep.

School reps are elected via an online election run by the UPSU Student Voice Team.

The main elections for 17/18 School Reps will be held in March 2017. During these elections there will be a nomination period, this is where anyone interested in becoming a School Rep will nominate themselves for a position and submit a manifesto. After the nominations period there is a voting period. Voting is open to all students.

School Representative Elections

School Reps are responsible for representing the Student Voice within the School in which they study. They should collect opinions from students within their School and liaise with Course Reps to get the bigger picture. They should identify issues and work with University staff to enhance the teaching and student experience in their School. School Reps are also expected to work collaboratively to influence change across their Faculty and the whole university, where necessary.
