Academic Reps are the eyes and the ears of our Students’ Union and act as the bridge between Solent Students’ Union and the University. Their core function is to represent their cohorts voice by collecting feedback on their course and faculty experience - both good and bad. Feedback is used to create positive change, ensuring your University experience is the best it can be.
How does being an Academic Rep work?
The Academic Representation system is a simple hierarchy system that allows your feedback to be fed up to our VP Education Sabbatical Officer.
There are two types of Academic Representatives. You can find out more information about each role, who your reps are and how to apply if you want to become a Course or Faculty Rep by clicking the buttons below.
Faculty Reps: They ensure that all Course Representatives are supported in their work across different courses in the same Faculty. They deal with issues and complaints that are happening across a whole faculty and they work closely with the VP Education to resolve them and listen to your feedback. Faculty Reps are elected into position during our Solent Elections.
Course Reps: They represent the students on their course to Solent University and ensure that their voices are heard. They consult with students to identify any issues they are facing and any feedback they have
All academic representatives will have a key meeting where they will work with staff on the feedback they have received, and they will also work very closely with our VP Education to make change happen at the very top!
