Student wellbeing and support

Student Representatives

Why are there Student Representatives?

Student Representation is a crucial and invaluable platform that enables the student community to shape their experiences and the Imperial institution as a whole. Within the Imperial College Union, two networks - Academic and Wellbeing - work hand-in-hand to ensure College staff understand the needs of students studying at Imperial. Find out more about the Representative Network in action within the Aeronautics department.

How are the networks structured?

For each network, there is one Representative per year group and one Departmental Representative. Therefore, each year will have one Academic Year Rep and one Wellbeing Year Rep, and each department has one Academic and one Wellbeing Departmental Rep. The Year Reps are be the point of contact for their cohort and work with the Department Reps to identify issues to be raised with College staff in their departments.

What do both the Academic and Wellbeing Reps do?

They collect feedback from students, regarding topics within their remit, and to alert university staff of issues affecting students' wellbeing/academic experience within their cohort.

What does the Academic Rep do?

Academic Reps are responsible for identifying and addressing issues affecting your education. They also work to proactively improve both your learning experience and that of future students, by coming up with new ideas and sharing best practices from different parts of College, helping the Union’s agenda.

The network of academic representatives works across departments and faculties to communicate best practices to one another.

What does the Wellbeing Rep do?

The Wellbeing Reps are responsible for identifying issues and raising awareness in areas affecting students such as health, financial concerns, relationships, equality & diversity and personal safety.

The network of wellbeing representatives serves as a campaigning body to promote messages about positive wellbeing and signposting to relevant internal and external support services.
