So, what is a School Rep?

A School Rep is an elected individual who works closely with Subject Reps to represent all students in their School. They’re supported by Students’ Union Education Officer, the Student Voice Team, and key University staff to make a real difference to the Swansea experience and ensure the student voice is represented.

School Reps attend meetings with staff in their School, the Students’ Union, and they even contribute to important University-level committees.

School Reps also work closely with the Students’ Union and University to support crucial campaigns such as StudyAid and the Big Swansea Survey.

The ideal candidates will be passionate, hardworking, reliable, and keen to make a difference.
