Academic Reps - Course (or Programme) and Faculty Representatives - gather your opinions and work with staff at the university to act on your priorities and make your education better.
As a UCL Laws student, you can run for election as a Programme Representative to represent students’ views to the Law Faculty. Programme Representatives represent undergraduate, postgraduate taught and research students.
The representatives sit on various committees such as the Staff-Student Consultative Committee to act as the voice of students, ensuring that the Faculty hears the students’ views as part of its decision-making processes. One of the programme representatives will be asked to act as the ‘lead’ representative, co-chairing the Staff-Student Consultative Committee meeting.
In addition to Programme Representatives, the UCL Students' Union will seek to appoint an undergraduate, postgraduate taught and research Faculty Representative. The Faculty Representative sits on the Union Council and thereby represents the Faculty at the wider University level.
Please see the Students’ Union website for further information on Academic Reps and their roles.
