Your Students’ Union provides representation for all students at Undergraduate, Postgraduate Taught and Postgraduate Research levels, regardless of location or subject of study. The Union supports a network of Module Reps, who provide representation for students studying a particular module. Find out more information on our Module Rep roles here.
The Faculty Officer scheme is run by the University of Stirling Students’ Union, with support from the University of Stirling to provide representation at a divisional level in each faculty. Each year, 21 Undergraduate students are recruited to take a lead-student representative role within their division.
Faculty Officers will work in partnership with senior members of staff within each faculty and division. They will manage their division’s network of module and programme representatives and will lead a project to improve the student experience within the faculty – in direct response to your feedback through annual surveys such as the National Student Survey, Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey or Stirling Experience Survey.
Faculty Officers are also involved in the inner working of the faculty and University, providing student input into proposals and initiatives designed to improve the overall student experience.
Taking on a Faculty Officer role takes passion and dedication. As such, Faculty Officers are paid for their work and are line managed by the Vice President Education and the Democracy and Representation Coordinator in the Students’ Union. There are a total of 21 positions available each year, ensuring coverage to all areas within the University.

What to expect from your Faculty Officer
All Faculty Officers have a responsibility to represent and act in the best interests of the students within their division. This means listening to any questions or concerns you may have about your module, programme or division as a whole, and then either helping you directly or sign-posting you on to relevant help and support. Faculty Officers should provide University staff members with constructive feedback about courses in their division, with the overall goal being to improve the division as a whole for both current and future students. Faculty Officers also support Module Reps within their division, either with student questions or concerns.
If you have any personal concerns or queries which do not relate to your module or programme, please contact either the Student Hub or the Students' Union at email@example.com.
