Information on what student representatives do and who they are.
For each year of study in Informatics there are up to four class reps. These are students are chosen at the beginning of the year and usually represent a diverse mix of student programmes, such as different degrees or single/combined honours study.
If you have an issue or concern about the organization or content of your year (including issues with specific courses that you don't feel comfortable approaching the lecturer about directly), then you can contact a class rep who can raise the issue with the relevant teaching staff or ITO.
Class reps participate in regular Staff-Student Rep (SSR) meetings with the Director and Deputy Director of Teaching throughout semester.
They are also part of the Staff-Student Liaison Committee (SSLC) for the year, which meets with the Year Organiser.
If you have a question or suggestion which goes beyond an individual course, affects the whole year, or which has not been addressed by your course rep or lecturer, then please contact the class reps for your year. Your class reps for 2015-16 are still being elected, once available details will be added below:

Each year students elect three school reps — two undergraduate, one postgraduate — to the Edinburgh University Students' Association (EUSA) and who sit on the EUSA Academic Council. The Student Councils work to improve the student experience at Edinburgh, and campaign on issues students care about.
If you have an issue which relates to the whole school, activities beyond Informatics, or would like to know more about EUSA activities, please contact your school reps. These are your school reps for 2015-16:
You can send mail to all the student reps together at email@example.com.
The point of Student Reps are to ensure the University is continually listening and engaging with students to improve teaching, learning, assessment and academic services. They are a link between students and staff at course and school level. To be a Rep a student must be doing a degree belonging to the School of Informatics. The task should not take more than 2 hours per week during semester times. Students can apply to be a class rep for their year, or as a school rep for Informatics. To become a class rep volunteer at the introductory lecture for the year or email the year organiser; EUSA organises the election of school reps before the summer exam diet for the following academic year, see the EUSA webpages.
