Student Representation

There are Informatics Student Representatives (reps) at all levels of study in the school.

Class reps

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 2014-15 are still being elected, once available details will be added below:

School reps

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 2013-14:
