Representation Structure


Student Executive Officers

The Student Executive Officers are elected by students to represent your academic interests at the very top level. They act as the key link to the University Vice Chancellor, Pro Vice Chancellor Student Experience and Academic Standards as well as other key stakeholders.

The role of the President includes acting as the chair of the Board of Trustees, along with being responsible for the financial position and performance of the Students' Union.

The role of the Vice-President is to represent the students and make sure that their voice and opinions are heard. The Vice-President is here to help out with anything that students may need during the year. Whether it is support or advice with education and welfare matters to helping you setting up societies, so pop into the office any time for chat.


School Reps

School Reps are appointed by the Students’ Union as the figurehead rep for each school. It is their responsibility to recruit and manage the rep structure within the school and to act as a link between the school and SU. They represent students at school and university level.

Lead Reps

Lead Reps are recruited by the School Rep. They are the figurehead for either a whole year group or a department, this is dependant on the structure of the school. Lead Reps support the School Rep to manage the rep team and represent the student voice at year/department level.

Course Reps

Course Reps are chosen by their peers, the election process is facilitated jointly between the School Rep and
academic staff. In order to effectively represent each class a guideline ratio of reps to class size has been set. 1 for classes of 10 or less. 2 for classes up to 100. 3 for 100 – 150 and 4 for 150+. School Reps will work with Programme Directors using these guidelines.

Group Reps

For some cohorts the School Rep and academic staff will opt to add this additional layer of representation. Group reps represent a seminar/tutor group. They are again chosen by their peers, they gather feedback at group level and pass this onto the Course Rep to be represented at programme level. These may be used where large cohorts are taught separately in smaller groups.
