Students Affect Change


Welcome to the Student Reps website. Here you will find information about what Faculty and School Reps do and how you can vote for who represents you. As well as this, you will find resources for Reps and information on how you can run to be a Rep yourself.

Congratulations New Student Reps!

Remember, whatever type of Student Rep you are, you are most welcome to join in with discussions, come to events, and start campaigns.

Education Forum - Examination Feedback and Student Engagement

This term's theme for Education Forum is Exam Feedback and Student Engagement. Many students have raised the issue of wanting to see improvements in how they get feedback on assessed work. To join in the discussion and make change, come to Education Forums.

Save the DATES: 22nd Jan, 13th February, 4th March, 7.15PM, CUSU, New Museums Site.

CUSU TEA and STAR Awards - Celebrating teaching excellence and engagement

Watch out for more on this. This term with money won from the HEA and NUS, CUSU is launching the Teaching Excellence and Student Academic Representative Awards. Students will have the opportunity to nominate for exemplary teaching staff in Lent and Easter. We're looking for students to be part of the Steering Committee, who will help shape nominations criteria, select the winners, and plan the awards ceremony in the University's exclusive Combination Room (where the Queen was welcomed during the 800th Anniversary celebrations).

What are Reps?

Reps are students elected to sit on Faculty and School meetings or SSJC and SSCoF meetings, representing the views of students on committees that have the power to really change your educational experience at Cambridge. Their job is to collect feedback from their peers and make sure students have a say in their own education, and can contribute to any discussions on the issues that affect them. Being a Rep is a great way to contribute to the workings of one of the oldest universities in the world, while making education at Cambridge better for everyone.
