At the beginning of each Academic year (counted as when the student commences their programme of study) students will automatically be registered as members of Your Students' Association. You can, however, opt out of the Students’ Association, under the terms of the Education Act 1994.

Any student who wishes not to be a member of the Students’ Association must inform the Students’ Association in writing.

If you decide to become more involved, you can help to raise awareness on important issues that affect students. It can be really rewarding and a great way to make friends. You can get involved in different ways, please contact us for more details.

Become a Student Voice Rep

Become a Student Voice Rep

The election of Student Voice 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 UHI Perth. Your Students' Association works closely with staff to promote and support students to be Student Voice Reps to help inform change at Perth. What does a Student Voice Rep do?

  • Listen to the views of class members.
  • Represent the views of the class at Student Representative Council (SRC) and Learner Forums.

What will you get out of being a Student Voice 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 Brightspace that you can complete in your own time.
  • SRC meetings for about an hour, 3 or 4 times per semester.
  • Learner Forum meetings with the staff on your course, twice a year for about an hour.
  • Additional training opportunities 

How do I become a Student Voice Rep?

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

Sports Clubs and Societies content

Sports Clubs and Societies

Sports Clubs and Societies

We encourage our students to take part in and run sports clubs and societies either based in UHI Perth or for the whole UHI partnership.

Clubs & Societies are groups that bring together students who share common interests. From fashion or accountancy to languages or politics, there are loads you can join and they meet on a regular basis to socialise and share new experiences.  

Why should I join a club or society? 

Being part of a group is a great opportunity to meet new people and try something new. They are lots of fun but you’ll also develop skills such as team work and communication that will look great on your CV.  

Students who join clubs & societies consistently tell us that it is one of their favourite things about being a UHI student. If you are thinking of joining a group or just want to meet some new people, get involved – you won’t regret it! 

Sign up or set up your own here. If you cannot access your local Your Students' Association office, but want to set one up, please contact us.

I want to start a club or society, what do I do?

Volunteering for Your Students' Association

We fully encourage you to volunteer to benefit working within the community as well as learning new skills. Throughout the course of the year, Your Students' Association offer volunteer opportunities ranging from volunteering as elections assistance, to events volunteers and sports ambassadors. Within the Highlands and Islands, there are also many external opportunities to work with organisations to gain experience and make a real difference! 

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, we would urge you to register below- we will take your details and see if we can match your desired experience with a volunteer placement- either with us, or an external organisation! If we do not have any opportunities to match this, we will ensure your record is kept on file and we will contact you when an opportunity arises. 

At Your Students' Association, we like to ensure volunteers are recognised for their contributions as a volunteer, which is why we have set up a Volunteer Accreditation Scheme. This means you can easily log your hours, have a consultation with the careers and employability team about what skills you have taken from your experience, and be granted an accreditation certificate.

We are also able to provide work placements and volunteering opportunities for students at UHI Perth as part of their course. If you need administrative experience, practice at running events or want to get something back, we'd love to hear from you
