Support for Reps

One key to being an effective student rep is a strong network of information and support, and CUSU is here to provide that to you. The following pages are packed with resources that will help you enjoy your role and make a positive difference.


Guide to Being a Rep

Essential reading for all reps! For an overview of what your role will entail, how it is situated within the wider University structure, and how you can represent students in the most effective way, take a look at our Student Reps Guide.


Network and training

We have a range of Rep training, networking and events planned for the coming year. Check this page for more information.


Resources Hub

A range of more in depth documents and resources for you to use. Will be updated with  guides to addressing some of the specific issues students might bring to you in your role, for example relating to workload, discrimination or supervisions. The resources also cover practical committee and representation skills and information on supporting students.


Stay in Touch

You can get in touch with CUSU with any questions or comments by emailing Roberta, the Education Officer, at Or drop by our office at 17 Mill Lane, weekdays between 9am and 5pm. We’re always happy to hear from you!

In the meantime, make sure to join the Student Academic Reps Facebook group to link up with other reps and stay informed.
