Class Reps is co-ordinated by the Vice-President/Education Officer who works with the SU Council Chairperson and the Convenors to ensure that every class is represented and heard. Feel free to make use of the SU Council to get your views across by approaching your class rep or an Officer.


The Class Rep is the “Voice of your Class” and represents the views of the majority of the class. They help to solve both individual and class-wide problems. If you decide to run for Class Rep, your responsibilities will include communicating between your class and the course lecturers, attending SU Council and your College Council meetings to help formulate Students’ Union policies and arranging class parties, hoodies etc. Being a Class Rep is good fun and a great addition to your CV.

Class Reps will be elected in each class either by the Students’ Union or by lecturers. Upon election, the newly elected Class Rep will be registered by the Education Officer.
