We’re here to support and enhance your education at Oxford. We support students who are JCC/GJCC Reps, year reps, course reps, class reps, cohort and academic reps in common rooms. Throughout the year, we offer students a range of support: initial training opportunities, help with surveys and consultations, and assistance in campaigning for change on your course. It’s our aim to develop a highly skilled and committed network of student reps across the University who are committed to improving the standard of education they receive. Whether you are a new rep or a rep in your 2nd/3rd year of the position, we look forward to working with you this year!

Student Written Submission
This is a report, written by OUSU, about students’ academic experiences here at Oxford. It is based on analysis of the results of the Student Barometer Survey, the National Student Survey and 11 student focus groups from around the University.
This document contains OUSU’s most up to date policies about education. You’ll find our campaigning priorities for the coming years and our stances on particular academic issues.
Student Consultation Benchmark
If your department/faculty is consulting students on a particular change affecting you and your fellow course-mates, OUSU has produced this ‘benchmarking tool’, which sets out the standard we expect them to follow.
