Student Reps

Students on campus

Student Reps are appointed each year to represent students' academic interests.


As volunteers, Student Reps listen to their peers' feedback on academic issues and use it to drive change. As student leaders in their programmes, they amplify student voices by raising feedback to relevant staff in both the Students’ Union and University – collaborating with them to implement new ideas and propose solutions to problems. They also support School Community Organisers (SCOs) in making students’ experience at Herts the best that it can be!
