We have a well-established framework for student representation, where student views help to inform the services provided at school and university level.Every school operates a Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) whose role is to:
- provide a formal channel for students to meet with staff in order to discuss the operation of their degree programme(s)
- keep the aims and objectives of degree programmes under review
- review issues relating to teaching and learning, including assessment and feedback, module evaluation, curriculum development and student support receive and review copies of External Examiners’ reports
- consider other matters affecting students, including health and safety and resources such as equipment and library provision.
The University also works closely with Reading University Students’ Union (RUSU), who provide advice and training to student representatives. Course Reps are elected students who represent you and your views on academic issues on your programme.They sit on Student Staff Liaison Committees and may also sit on the programme’s Board of Studies.
School Reps give your feedback to the University and sit on the School Board for Teaching & Learning (SBTL). School Reps support and lead the team of Course Reps within each school.
