Your Students’ Union provides representation for all students, regardless of level, location or subject of study. At Postgraduate level the Union supports a network of over 100 Postgraduate programme reps, who provide representation for students studying on a particular PG degree – helping to build the student experience both within their subject area and across the University. For more information on our Postgraduate programme rep role, see our Academic Representatives section.
Graduate School Officers
The Graduate School Officer scheme is run jointly by the University of Stirling Students’ Union and University of Stirling to provide postgraduate representation at a faculty level. Each year 10 postgraduate students (5 PGT and 5 PGR) are appointed via a recruitment process to take on lead-student representative roles within their academic faculties.
During their time in post Graduate School Officers will work in partnership with senior members of faculty and university staff to take forward a project designed to improve the postgraduate student experience within their faculties – or across the wider university.
Taking on a Graduate School Officer role takes passion and dedication. As such, Graduate School Officers are paid an honorarium for their work. Officers are line managed by the Vice President Education in the Students’ Union and are remunerated by the Stirling Graduate School for their work.
