Why become a Year Rep?

In first few weeks of the academic year, you will have an opportunity to run for one of the four positions of being your year’s welfare or academic representative. Year Reps are your number one port of call for anything educational.

Years reps attend termly student-focussed meetings called Staff-Student Liaison Groups (SSLG) where students can voice their opinions to the course leaders themselves. The Faculty of Medicine and ICSMSU pride ourselves on the strong relationship we have with each other and how changes actual occur from student feedback and suggestions. In the past, year reps have had huge impacts on making exams more bearable by spreading out them out during the course of the year. They have also started from a student suggestion to provide us with valuable exam feedback, which we have never got before.

So if you like being in the know and are passionate, enthusiastic and wouldn’t mind being the voice of your year, then we want you!
