Rep Resources

Welcome to the Academic Rep section of the YUSU website!

On this page you will find everything you need to know about your roles, links to handy helpsheets and how to get in touch with key contacts. We want this to be as useful as possible so do let us know if you want anything else adding in.

Useful Resources


  • Academic Rep Handbook - This handbook gives you all the basic information you need to be a Rep. It also has useful contacts and a jargon buster. 
  • Role Descriptions - The current role descriptors for Course Reps, Department Reps and Faculty Reps.
  • Training Slides - These slides were used in the initial training sessions, use them to remind yourself of the basics. 

A guide to academic policies is currently being created and will be uploaded soon.


Handy Helpsheets


  • Committees - Tips on what to do before, during and after a meeting. 
  • Communication - Ideas on how to effectively communicate with your cohort. 
  • Confidentiality - The do’s and dont’s of confidentiality.
  • NSS - what it is and how you can use it.
  • Surveys - Helping you to get started creating feedback surveys. 

More handy helpsheets will be made available over the coming weeks - including tips and tricks for social media.
