Representation

Our student body representation network consists of five sabbatical officers who represent BCUSU as a whole, two School Reps per school and at least one Student Academic Leader for each year group on every course.

These representatives feed through any feedback, queries and concerns to BCUSU during regular sessions.

If you want to be a Rep, or just unsure of who yours are, more information is available in our Representation area.
