Student Academic Representatives are elected in programmes, departments and faculties across UCL as the voice of their fellow students. They represent students in meetings such as the Staff-Student Consultative Committee (SSCC), which are influential in the development of education at UCL.

Reps will also provide updates on how they’re representing their peers’ academic concerns, through emails, social media or posts on Moodle or Unitu.

All Reps receive training from the Students’ Union before starting their role.

Finding your academic representative

Discover the Rep for your programme or research unit on the Students’ Union website. Reps are elected by fellow students and can help you with questions or feedback throughout the year. 

Meet the reps of the year

With over 1,600 Student Academic Representatives in place across UCL, Reps are making an impact in every corner of the university. Feedback from Reps has inspired improvements and changes in a range of different departments and services.

Exceptional Reps are recognised at the Students’ Union’s annual Education Awards, and you can see more about the great work by last year’s winners on the Education Awards website.
