Student Representation

The Department is required and committed to provide suitable mechanisms for the representation of students’ views and opinions. There are many formal and informal channels which allow this to take place.

If you attend departmental meetings as the student representative, you will be entitled to claim for your travel expenses. If the meeting clashes with a timetabled session, you will not be counted as ‘absent’; however you will be required to inform your lecturer of your whereabouts during this time.

Students on programmes with a practice component should note that, if the meeting falls within placement time, you should organise your clinical time so that you do not miss practice hours.

The Department has a large student representative system. The roles of these representatives vary. They represent the diverse structure of the Department.

Student reps have certain responsibilities:

  • to identify student concerns and gauge opinions of their fellow students
  • to keep students informed of current issues in the Department and report back on meetings attended
  • to attend departmental meetings and bring student issues to those meetings
  • to liaise with other reps of the Department of Health Sciences
