This year we will be offering our Class Rep training on each campus by School.
Once we have received notification of your election we will contact you with full details. We will also keep the sessions updated here so keep checking in.
Online training will also be available this year through BBLearn: this means that regardless of where you study, you can receive training on your role as a representative.
Importantly this also means that you can receive accreditation for your role. The following is available:
This handbook provides you with an overview of the role and also explains some of the key committees and tasks you will sit on and carry out as a represnetative. Please download it and save it on your computer for future reference.
If you need a hard copy of this document please get in touch as there are some available.
We realise that there are a lot of competing priorities for students these days - you have coursework, part time jobs and caring responsibilities.
It is still important that we make the effort to meet as a group however, maybe another rep has had a really successful campaign that you might want to hear about, or you need to ask us about something in particular that you have been thinking about.
Even if it is nothing specific, sometimes it is just useful to get together in a group with people who are carrying out a similar role and chat about the challenges. We aim to have at least one Class Rep meeting per semester.
Your Students' Union is here all year round to give you support. You can contact your campus Officer with any course or University issue - their contact details can be found here or use the contact box at the bottom of this page to contact Avril Honan, the Student Engagement Manager (staff post) in the SU.
There are a number of things that you may be asked throughout the year that past Officers have put together some answers for. These include things such as, filling in an extenuating circumstances form, appealing an exam mark or the meaning of plagiarism. Most of these queries can end up being quite complex and the students should also get in touch with us here in the SU for further support. This web page will give you and them a little more information and contact details for finding out more.
