Building a community on your course- Academic Societies

Academic societies are a way to extend your academic community to create peer support networks. They are a space to create and develop in your practice area as well as an opportunity to collaborate and socialise! Have a look at our existing Academic societies here and if you don’t see one you like then why not start a new society – we’ll support you each step of the way.   


 

Rep Socials 

Being a course rep means you’re a part of an important community and what better way to celebrate that then through our rep socials programme of events! Keep an eye on our course rep newsletter (link to sign up to newsletter) for upcoming events or contact us is you have an idea of a social event you’d like us to organise. 


 

Wellbeing 

Being a course rep can be one of the most impactful experiences of your student life, however it should never feel overwhelming or stressful. We have a number of services and provisions in places to help with wellbeing and managing stress.  We are always on hand to advise and support you on any wellbeing issues you might be facing.   


 

Academic Campaigns 

As a rep, you are on the front line for campaigning for positive change. If issues are not resolved though the usual course rep system, we work with course reps to build a campaign that will lobby the University for change. This can be on course, university of national level. 

We’ve won some pretty big campaign wins like freezing in fees, anonymous marking, changes to extenuating circumstances, free Wednesday afternoons and £250,000 for mental health funding!

Arts SU members have a number of academic campaigns on the go, including Decolonise the Curriculum and the NUS Safety Net campaign.
