Become a Student Course Rep

The election of Course Reps and their participation in meetings is an important part of how we hear the student voice and use the feedback to improve your experience on your course and as a student at Perth College UHI.

HISA Perth works closely with the College to promote and support students to be Class Reps to help inform change at College level.

What does a Student Course Rep do?

  • Listen to the views of class members.
  • Represent the views of the class at Student Representative Council (SRC) and Course Committee meetings (CCM).

What will you get out of being a Student Course Rep?

  • Develop new skills and experiences - listening, speaking, negotiating - we give you training in these and more.
  • Improve your CV and become more employable.
  • Help make things better, for you, your class and future students.
  • Have fun and meet new people.
  • Be in with a chance of winning an OBI award for taking part.

How much time will it take?

  • Introductory Training when you take up post, lasting 2 hours – there is also an online module on Blackboard that you can complete in your own time.
  • SRC meetings for about an hour, 3 or 4 times per semester.
  • CCM meetings with the staff on your course, twice a year for about an hour.
  • Additional training opportunities on topics such as Preparing for your Course Committee Meeting and Equality & Diversity.

How do I become a Student Course Rep?

Ask your Personal Academic Tutor how to get involved. We need you in place and trained before the October Recess!

"Working for HISA has been such a wonderful and rewarding experience. We help students with various issues they face and ensure that their voice is heard on and off campus. As part of the 2019/20 team, we had many fantastic achievements for our students and I'm very excited to see what the wonderful 2020/21 team do. I'm know they will achieve amazing things.

Being a Class rep has made me aware of more opportunities that are available to students in the college

Being class rep was great for me as I felt like I was more connected with the students and the issues in the education system. It’s important to have people like student reps to stand for all the people who are to shy to say what things may need to change. I really loved being student rep and hope to do it again.

I personally found my time as a student representative to be really enjoyable. I feel it's important to have student reps to convey the general feeling and opinions of a class through one person rather than a large group all trying to get their opinions across at once.
