Student Representatives

Student Representatives are appointed for each Institute, the MRes and DClin Psy programmes, they are friendly and approachable individuals who are happy to have informal chats or discuss issues/concerns that may arise during your studies. All institutes and programmes have their own systems in place to ensure communication between their students and representatives. Student representatives meet with the Faculty Postgraduate Tutor and Graduate School staff every four months as part of the Faculty Staff Student Committee where they perform an important role in liasing with the the Graduate School on behalf of the postgraduate community and voicing the issues and opinions of research students within the Faculty. Two student representatives from the staff student committee sit upon the Graduate School Committee, in order to make sure relevant issues are voiced at this level.

If you are interested in being a student representative, please contact Richy Hetherington ( for further information.
