As a Students’ Union our role is to provide a platform for projecting the student voice to ensure students’ interests are represented in all decision making within the University of Stirling and in the community locally, nationally, and internationally.
Each year we support and train over 500 representatives across all subjects, levels and locations of study to help improve learning, teaching and the student experience at Stirling.
To make sure your voice influences changes across the University, we operate many different representative roles. Our Academic Reps represent the interests of the students within their modules (undergraduate) or degree programmes (postgraduate).
On top of that we have a dedicated team of Undergraduate Faculty Officers and Postgraduate Officers who represent your interests at a Faculty level, both responding to any issues as and when they come up as well as taking forwarding projects to improve the student experience in the long-run.
All our work on Educational Representation is led up by the Vice President Education – one of your four elected sabbatical officers. It’s their job to represent all 14,000 Stirling students to the University on academic matters and will take forward several campaigns to improve learning, teaching and the student experience each year.
Regardless of the level they work at, all our representatives are there to gather feedback from students throughout the semester and are key points of contact if you have any concerns you wish to raise. You can find more information about these roles, including how you can apply to be a rep, on the relevant pages below.
