hello.

You may be surprised to hear that representing students’ academic interests is one of the core purposes of the Students’ Union and links strongly to our strategic aim to improve students’ education. One of the most prominent ways we do this is through our 400+ elected academic reps.



This site aims to act as a hub of information for students, reps and staff, so to make sure you’re getting the most relevant information possible, let us know who you are.
