Undergraduate and postgraduate Reps in each school and year of study are elected by students in the same school and year to represent their views and interests.
To find out who your Student Reps are, head to sussexstudent.com/myrep or contact your school office.
Student Reps make sure that your voice is heard. They are a vital link between students, the Union and the University. If something needs changing (or is going well!) on your course or in your school or department, Student Reps can try and change it.
Student Reps take this information to staff in the department, and can raise issues at department, school, and university level committees.
Reps can also give you details of people and services that can help with individual problems.
