Class Reps

Do you want to become a Class Rep?

Class Reps are elected student volunteers chosen by their fellow students who function as a vital link between staff and students, fostering and maintaining open dialogue to improve students’ learning experience.

Class Reps are elected at the beginning of an academic year or semester and they represent your views and concerns, ensuring your courses and programmes are the best they can be. They work together with staff at Student-Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) meetings that are normally held once a term.

Training

AUSA offers an online training and additional workshops for all Class Reps to ensure that you can become a successful Rep and develop transferable skills. Class Reps are also provided with a Class Rep Handbook and other materials which contains information and advice about the role. 

Class Reps can complete their training online, or alternatively sign up for in-person workshops. In-person workshops give Class Reps a great opportunity to meet other representatives and their School Convenors. Those wanting to complete their training at the in-person workshops, please sign up for either Training Workshop 1 OR 2. You only need to attend one. AUSA also offers an additional workshop on Feedback, to which Class Reps can also sign up for below. Please choose either Workshop 1 OR 2.

How do I become a Class Rep?

Your School will organise the election of Class Reps at the beginning of a term or academic year. You need to let your Programme Convenor or Co-ordinator know that you are interested in the position as soon as possible. They are able to tell you about the election process in more detail.
