What you need to know about student representation on quality-related committees, and support that is available.
Effective student representation is a vital part of the University’s quality assurance and learning and teaching enhancement processes.
All courses have student representation via the class representatives scheme.
Course Organisers request representation at the class, and where relevant, tutorial level. All volunteers should attend the Edinburgh University Students' Association (EUSA) class representative training.
Further information about student representatives, including a role description, a list of class representatives, and advice on how academic staff can offer support, is available from the Edinburgh University Students' Association (EUSA) website.
At the end of each course, evaluation forms are distributed to all students on the course asking them to comment on features of that course, and any difficulties they may have had. This feedback is anonymous.
Staff-student liaison meetings are normally held once or twice per semester within our five divisions, or within the subject areas that comprise them:
For further details and minutes of meetings please contact the relevant division.
The School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures offers all of our undergraduate students help and support throughout their time at the University.
Detailed information about undergraduate student support, including the role of the Director of Studies and the Student Support Officers, is available from the undergraduate support section.
The University has a policy on academic and pastoral support which is available to download from the Academic Services website.
