The Best Student Life. Bristol SU

Academic Reps Training

As a student rep you are responsible for passing on the opinions and ideas that your students have to the University. Our job is to help you to do this! The skills you can develop through representing students alongside completing your academic studies are ones that you can transfer to your career and future life. 

Compulsory Training

Repping 101

This compulsory online training covers all the basics of the role, and is a great introduction to getting you to think about your position. It takes around 30 minutes and is best viewed on a desktop or laptop screen.

Additional Training

This training isn’t strictly necessary for your role. Being said that, completing it will make you a better representative!
