Department Reps

Department Reps are experienced student leaders appointed to the role by the RSU and their university department.

Their key responsibilities include collecting feedback, attending University meetings and acting as a point of contact between Programme Reps and their academic department.

Department Reps work with both the RSU and the University to help drive democratic student engagement and help to close the feedback loop between students and staff.

Students are recruited to the role by our Student Voice team and take their post from July.
