Make sure you have “followed” and “joined” our social media groups! It’s the best way to chat to other course reps and keep up to date with upcoming training sessions and developments in the student rep programme.
If you have any questions or problems in your role as a student rep, there are staff at Hallam Union who can help you. You can find our contact details here.
Within your university department, the key staff you will work with are your course leader and senior administrator. They should be able to help if you have any questions about staff-student meetings in your department.
In the Activities Pod, you will a number of useful resources including a Mac computer, printer and meeting tables for any student rep discussions you might want to have. The Pod is open from 10am until 5pm during term time and you can simply drop in.
Hallam Union is run by a team of student Officers who have been elected by Hallam students to represent them. These elected Officers sit on all University committees including Faculty Academic Boards and are therefore in a position to take up any issues you may encounter. The Officer you are most likely to be in contact with is the Education Officer - Emily Connor.
Every month all faculty and course reps will be invited to meet with the Education Officer in a mini forum. Reps can catch up on any events that the University or Union are running, any problems that you as course reps or students may be having or just to exchange ideas or meet other reps!
City campus – Tues 5 Nov, 5-6pm in the Boardroom in the HUBS
Collegiate campus – Thurs 7Nov, 5-6pm in Robert Winston Building room F613
Keep an eye out for details of future meetings on the union website, through Facebook with ‘HallamUnion EducationOfficer’ and in the student rep newsletter.
Hallam Union has an Advice Centre with full-time advisers who can provide information, advice, advocacy and representation on most issues that you may encounter as a student or student rep. These include areas such as funding, debt and money advice, housing, immigration, employment and academic issues. The Advice Centre runs drop-in sessions from 1pm -3pm, Monday to Friday (except Thursday).
If a student comes to you for help with an individual problem, don’t try to solve it yourself – direct them to the advice centre.
