Postgraduate Representation


Your Postgraduate Reps are there to represent postgraduate students, gathering student feedback and work with university and union staff to shape and improve your university experience. 

Postgraduates are represented by Course Reps, Senior Academic Reps, a Postgraduate Taught Rep and a Postgraduate Experience Officer. 

We have created a diagram that shows the Academic Representation Structure at Bath Spa.


Course Reps

Course Reps attend Staff Student Liaison Committees, meetings with academic staff to give your feedback and shape changes on your course.


They also attend Course Rep Round Tables, meetings with their Senior Academic Rep to  pass issues to higher committees and meet Course Reps across their School. For a list of actions from the latest Round Table, click on the icon.

Senior Academic Reps 

Senior Academic Reps are elected annually and their role is to pass wider issues from Course Reps to School level committees. They also are part of a working group to run campaigns and projects to improve the academic university experience. 

Postgraduate Taught Rep

The Postgraduate Taught Rep represents the academic interests of all Postgraduate Taught students. They sit on Higher Degrees Taught Committee and Student Representatives Committee and work with the Senior Academic Reps on the working group. 

Postgraduate Experience Officer

The Postgraduate Experience Officer works with the other three Experience Officers. They look at the overall experience, whereas the Postgraduate Taught Rep focuses on the academic concerns and good practice. Examples include the postgraduate community, networking and making sure that the Students' Union is accessible and inclusive of postgraduate students.
