Student Representatives are the vital bridge between the student body and the University. As a rep you are able to bring through changes that will benefit students’ academic experience!
Aside from the enormous sense of satisfaction and improving your course for the better, we want to make sure that you make the most of the experience you have gained as a rep in your life after uni, and your future careers.
Any reps that attend both an Education Network event and an SU Democratic event (such as AMM or Student Council) are eligible for a LinkedIn recommendation from us.
We can also write you a reference for job applications - just get in contact with us.
The Bristol PLUS Award challenges you to develop a range of skills to boost your CV, and you are able to use your experience as a rep as part of the 'intensive skills activity' criteria. Find out more about the Bristol PLUS Award on the University website.
At our conferences we always have some freebies to give away. Make you come along to get trained and to pick up your free stuff!
Bristol SU have a team dedicated to making sure that course reps have the support they need. The Representation Team is made up of Lizzie Tillley and Stella Becci. They can be contacted at email@example.com.
They can help with any of the problems that you may have as an academic rep!
We have a whole range of training sessions. Sign up to one of our Development Team's training sessions.

We find the best way to communicate with reps is face-to-face or on social media. It's worth getting to know your reps early on in the year so that you can support each other through the SSLCs and share good practice.
