Your Role Supporting Academic Reps

The Academic Representation system is one of the most important channels for students at Solent University to give direct feedback and shape their educational experience. As a member of university staff you form an integral part in that system to ensure every student has a voice and that their feedback is addressed.

University Staff Responsibilities

  • Elect their Course Reps and sending their details to the Students’ Union
  • Regularly meet with their Course Reps and address their feedback
  • Ensure meetings are communicated out to relevant students and courses
  • If a Course Rep is struggling, direct them to the Students’ Union for support

Course Rep Upload

Once you have elected your Course Reps they need uploading to the Course Rep database. For each Course Rep we require their course, level, name and university email address. You can let us know who your Course Reps are here.

If you have a lot of Course Reps to upload in one go you can alternatively download and use Bulk Upload Spreadsheet available in the support resources below and email them all in one go to
