When you join the University, you are automatically a member of Aberdeen University Students’ Association (AUSA), an independent student-led organisation that supports, empowers and represents you during your University experience.

How will your Students’ Association ensure your voice is represented?

You have representatives at all levels: Class Reps in your course, School Conveners for your School, Sabbatical Officers and Student Council at the university, Liberation and Section Forums if you are part of an under-represented or marginalised group and based on your interests.    

Class Reps are elected at the beginning of an academic year or semester to represent your views and concerns about courses or degree programme, ensuring they are the best they can be, and bring about direct change based on your feedback. 

Student Council is a group of elected and volunteer students working together to make sure our work and campaigns are based on your priorities. Student Council shapes the work of the association for the year ahead.  

Liberation and Section Forums exist to promote the interests of, and organise events for students who are part of or identify with certain groups.
