Effective student representation is a vital part of the University’s quality assurance and learning and teaching enhancement processes and a way you can be involved in shaping the School.
There are several ways you can represent the views and experiences your fellow students and give feedback which could shape the School going forward.
The EUSA School Representatives represent all the students in the School to the wider University and to the Students' Association. They also organise and chair the School Council meetings. The EUSA Undergraduate School Representative for 2021/22 is Scarlett Kiaras-Attari.

Programme Reps are the foundations of student representation - they represent the views of their peers on their course or programme working in partnership with staff to improve the student experience for current and future students. Within each of the School's subject areas, Programme Reps are appointed and attend student-staff liaison committees. If you have issues you wish your representatives to raise, please contact them.
You can find out who your Programme Rep is, or find out how to register your interest in being a Programme Rep, on Learn. Please note this list will be updated throughout the year as new reps are elected.

Subject Area Student Staff Liaison Committee
The Subject Area Student Staff Liaison Committees discuss matters that relate to programmes and courses within the Subject Areas, see Programme Reps (above).
School-wide Student Staff Liaison Committee
Membership includes student and staff representatives from each of the School's Subject Areas, with all Programme Reps being invited to the meetings along with representatives of the school student societies and volunteer groups. This committee considers issues of interest to both our students and staff which are wider/broader than those relating only to a course or a programme. These might relate to School or University provision, services or facilities and could be raised by students or staff. Student representatives should solicit feedback from other students so that they do not simply represent their own views. The School-wide Student Staff Liaison Committee meets four times during the session, in weeks 5 and 9 of each semester.

Student surveys and feedback
Student feedback is vital to the School of History, Classics and Archaeology and to the University in helping us to enhance the experience of all our students. During your studies you are given the opportunity to provide the School of History, Classics and Archaeology with feedback through a variety of questionnaires and surveys. The School would like to encourage as many of our students to participate as possible. We value your feedback very much.
The annual National Student Survey seeks the views of final-year undergraduates at UK universities on a range of areas relating to your higher education experience. The survey gives you a platform to make your voice heard. The main purpose of the NSS is to help prospective students, their families and advisors to make study choices.
The survey is administered by Ipsos MORI, an independent market research company, on behalf of the UK's higher education funding bodies.
You can read more about the National Student Survey at National Student Survey (NSS).
Minutes of Student-Staff Liaison meetings should tell you how the School and/or subject area will respond to your feedback.
At the start of each new course, you should be informed in what ways previous student feedback has contributed to the development of the course.
Your programme reps can bring your issues to the Subject Area Student Staff Liaison Committee (see above).
