Representation ACADEMIC REPRESENTATION We ensure that the student voice is heard both on an individual and collective level. Academic Representation is one of the key ways we work with the University to improve your experience at Bath. Academic and Faculty Representatives are students elected to raise issues and suggestions on how your course or faculty can be improved. All students are eligible to stand and vote in these elections – which take place in the first two weeks in Semester One.

YOUR TOP ISSUES Each year the Students’ Union identifies key issues that may concern you about life at university, based on input from sources such as the Student Opinion Survey, Academic Council, and other research. These topics are the focus of our representational work for the year.

“Being an Academic Representative has given me the opportunity to work with the University to try and improve the quality of education students receive. My role is to listen to students and discuss their issues with staff in order to facilitate change. It has given me a fantastic chance to make a difference and has been an extremely rewarding experience.” Heidi Miller, Academic Representative (11-12) BS (Hons) Mathematical Sciences
