Apply to be a Student Representative

This year Student Representatives (or Student Reps) have been invaluable in making sure that students’ opinions are heard.

Reps have worked with the library to expand the number of core textbooks available, opened up study spaces in schools and worked to improve Canvas for fellow students.

Student Reps gather students’ feedback and pass this on to staff both at the University and the Students’ Union. This is primarily done when staff and students meet once a term. Reps can then work together with staff to create the change that students want to see.

Being a Student Rep not only gives you the chance to create a positive impact during your time at Sussex, but it provides you with a chance to gain invaluable employability skills.

As a Student Rep, you will attend meetings as well as collecting and presenting student feedback, improving your communication and negotiation skills.

Through your proactive approach to collecting feedback, and coming up with solutions to the problems students face, you will also improve your problem-solving and qualitative data collection skills.

You can find out more about what being a Student Rep entails by having a look at the role description.

If you’re an Undergraduate student who will be in their second or final year next academic year, you can put yourself forward now to be a Student Rep. All you need to do is head to sussexstudent.com/studentreps and write 100 words describing why you would be a good Rep!

Applications close 19 April at 5pm. Students on your course will then vote online for their chosen representatives. Results will be announced by Friday 3 May.


If you have any questions about being a Student Rep you can email Ellie, the Student Rep Assistant, at studentreps@sussexstudent.com
