At Hallam Union we are planning how we will promote the Student Rep role to students in 2013/14. One of the ways we plan to do this is to create a short 5 minute video about what the rep role is, what the benefits are, and what you can get involved in.
We need volunteers to feature in the video to tell us about your experiences as a student rep. The filming can be done at any time which suits you, and will take place within The HUBS. You will only be needed for around 5-10 minutes. Afterwards, we will cut everything together from all people’s experiences to make the video.
If you would like to be involved in making this video, and promoting it to future students then please contact Fiona McFarlane.
Union Council is the highest decision-making body in Hallam Union. It is made up of students who are there to represent you. This includes seven faculty reps who you can contact to raise any issues or put forward proposals for the council to consider.
The current faculty reps are:
ACES – Kieran Pearson
Development and Society – Emily Connor, Ollie Rogerson
Health and Well-Being – Mehdi Najefi, Joe Foster
Sheffield Business School – Hajara Dan-Musa (Postgraduate), Neil Morris (Undergraduate)

Taught postgraduate students are being asked to participate in the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES). This is a national survey, designed specifically for taught postgraduate students. It focuses on your experiences on your course and the survey results are used to improve postgraduate courses and to make sure the University is providing a good experience for taught postgraduate students.
You can help to improve the experience of postgraduate students at Sheffield Hallam University by filling in the survey and encouraging other students on your course to fill it in. The survey is open until the end of May and you should have received en email with details of how to partici[ate. Please use this opportunity to make your voice heard! If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Nathaniel Pickering: N.Pickering@shu.ac.uk.
Registration is now open for our course rep conference on Friday 12th April. Please click here to register by Sunday 7th April.
We will post more information about the conference program nearer the time. You can check our conference page for details.
If you have any questions about this event, please email us.

Final-year undergraduate students will soon be asked to participate in the National Student Survey. This is an opportunity to give feedback about your entire student experience at SHU. The University takes the results of the survey very seriously so this is a chance to make your voice heard and feed into the future development of courses.
The University has also pledged to give £2 to RAG charities for each student who fills in the survey. It only takes 10 minutes to fill out the survey but by doing so you can make a big difference to the University and to these charities.
We would like final-year student reps to help promote the survey, so we are offering a training session (date tbc) for you to find out more about the NSS and how to promote it to students. If you would be interested in this, please email email@example.com and we will send you a link to sign up for the training.
Welcome to those of you who are both new to Hallam and those returning Hallam students
We’d just like to inform you of our Student Rep Scheme. Student Reps act as a communication link between their fellow students, and university staff about any issues affecting their educational experience.
You can be involved in this as a Rep, and speak up for your fellow students. For more information on this role, and what you can gain then check out this website or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you choose not to be a Rep then you can still participate by providing feedback to your Reps, and supporting them in their role.
To those who have already signed up for the eyar we have some exciting things coming up for you this Academic Year, and we will be regularly keeping you informed and as involved as possible in all that we do to support you as reps
