What is it?

Student representatives play a key role in enhancing your student experience at QMU.

The University and the Students’ Union offer a range of opportunities for students to become involved in representative activities. Roles are wide ranging from Class Reps who work with academic staff to consider and address students’ views on their learning experience to student panellists at programme validation and review events and members of senior University Committees.

Student representation is a partnership between the University, the Students’ Union and the students. Students receive training and support in their roles. This year introductory training for new Class Reps will be delivered by Student Representation Assistants, who are also experienced QMU Class Reps.

Further information on the Class Rep’s role and training dates is available on the Students' Union website and by contacting

The Students’ Union also offers a series of advanced training sessions and on-going support through the Academic Council. This forum meets twice a semester, is chaired by the Student President and offers all Class Reps the opportunity to meet, share experiences and raise any concerns about academic matters with the Students’ Union.
