Your Voice

Run by students, for students – what difference will you make?

Student representation doesn’t just end with the Course Rep, representation exists throughout the University’s decision making processes so no matter where staff are within the system they have a role to play. For a full guide on how the system works and how staff can interact within the system (including information for Course Leaders) please see our Staff Handbook.

Academic Representation and Oversight Group (AROG)

AROG is a joint SU/University group that oversees the rep system and reports directly into both LTSEC and the SU Student Council. It is responsible for ensuring effective delivery of the rep scheme, monitoring its effectiveness and supporting the staff who deliver it. It will also review and make any final decisions on requests from courses and/or Schools to alter their representation structure/depart from the Code of Practice’s guidelines and acts as Returning Officer for all Course Rep Elections
