Subject Rep applications for the 2023-24 academic year are officially open!

The University and Students’ Union are looking to recruit our Subject Reps for the 23/24 academic year, and we’d like to invite you to take part!

So, what does a Student Rep do?

Put simply, Student Reps are the link between you and your School. They’re here to collate your feedback, communicate your views to the University and work with staff to make improvements to your education.

That’s not to say all students can’t approach their lecturers or Faculty staff if they have an issue or a suggestion, however Student Reps sit on University committees so can take your feedback directly to staff and work on solutions to improve your experience.

All Reps receive training and the opportunity to attend specialist workshops. Not only is it great for your CV it’s also a really rewarding role!

Sound like something you’d be good at?

Then stand to be a Rep! You don’t need to have any experience, just a passion for improving the student experience at Swansea University.

How do I sign up?

Subject Reps are elected positions, but don’t worry, it’s actually a really easy process. All you need to do is log onto the Students’ Union website, then put your name forward with a manifesto and photo. Your manifesto is a short statement explaining why you would make a great Rep.

Voting opens on the 5th May and your classmates will need to visit to cast their vote. After the election has concluded the votes will be counted and all candidates will be informed of the results.
