Class reps

Class Reps are essential to both the University and the SRC. They allow students to air their views to the academics that run their department on issues like course content, teaching and resources. They are the first point of contact for students who have a problem, or suggestion, about a class as a whole.

Class Rep Training was a really useful session where I learnt all the skills I needed to make sure I felt fully equipped to take part in meetings with staff as an equal. It was also a great way of meeting other Class Reps and making friends in the process.”
Josh Sutherland, Class Rep 08/09

If you want to sign up for the class rep training, please visit the Class Rep Training signup on the Student Voice website (login with your GUID account). In order for your role as a Class Representative to be recognised on your University transcript, you must attend a training session and have been confirmed by your subject that you’ve attended Staff Student Liaison Committees.

However, if you’ve previously attended a training session in the last four years then there is no need for you to be trained again.

Any student at the University can become a Class Rep. Class Reps are elected in class during the first few weeks of each semester with the class lecturer or course convenor organising a brief election. It’s quite simple, no big speeches required. Just give a quick “hello”, tell the class your name and why you would be a good Class Rep.

Class Reps are essential to both the University and the SRC. They allow students to air their views to the academics and support staff that run their department on issues like course content, teaching and resources. They are the first point of contact for students who have a problem, or suggestion about a class as a whole. It’s vital that you’re a visible member of the class and students know how is best to get in touch with you.

The SRC provides training for Class and Postgraduate Research Reps near the beginning of each semester and can be contacted throughout the year for support and advice. Training is an important part of the role and will give you the tools to tackle any issues that arise.

If you’re looking to contact your Class Rep, please visit StudentVoice on MyGlasgow where the Class Reps for your classes are listed.

Class Reps are elected for both Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught courses. Postgraduate Research students fulfilling this role are known as PGR reps. We run specific training tailored to the needs of PGR reps.
