We want to hear from you!

We want to hear from you about your experience of studying at Perth College UHI. The College collects student views through two annual student surveys, an early experience survey in October, and an end of year survey, in April. Your PAT facilitates both of these surveys.

In the meantime if you have anything you want to comment on then please speak with, or email, your PAT or your class rep, or submit an email to yourvoice.perth@uhi.ac.uk

Course Reps - each group on a course has the opportunity to elect a fellow student to represent them collectively.  This role is known as a course representative.

  • The course rep receives training and is your go to person to feed back to the tutors on any general stuff.
  • They will ask your opinion on aspects of your student experience and feed this back to the HISA Perth and to the College at various meetings.
  • They will feed back the collective voice of the class at a Course Committee Meeting, which is held twice a year and chaired by the Sector Manager, as well as to HISA Perth at the Student Representation Committee (SRC) which meets every 6 weeks (or so). 

The college is interested in hearing your opinion, good or bad, on how effective you think the learning and teaching, assessment, support for your learning etc has been.  You can of course still raise any concerns you have with the teaching or support with the tutors and PAT without going to your course rep.

HISA Perth Students’ Association - The College students’ association is HISA Perth, which is part of the overall University of Highlands and Islands student association (HISA).  The association is run by students, for students, and exists to make sure your student experience is the best it can be! Helping to improve your time studying is at the heart of everything they do, they promote inclusion, celebrate individuality and fight for the issues that affect you!

HISA Perth executive is made up of a President, Vice President (Education and Student Engagement), and Vice President (Activity and Welfare).The Executive are elected by students each year.  The HISA Student Engagement Coordinator, and the HISA Administrator are permanent members of HISA Perth staff  and provide support.  Their main office is based in room 042 on the first floor of Brahan Building, near the Library corridor.

As a student at Perth College you are automatically a member of the HISA Perth, and your course rep will have the opportunity, on your behalf, to feedback on issues at the regular HISA Perth SRC meetings.
