Student Reps

Students are a fundamental aspect of any university and the College must ensure that the student experience, both academic and social, is the best it can possibly be. In order for this to happen King’s College London and KCLSU work closely together to ensure that effective representation is in place to allow all students to have a voice and an opportunity to provide feedback regarding their experience.

Student Reps play a crucial role in shaping the learning, teaching and research experience/environment. Students in each programme, department and/or faculty elect and select Student Reps to represent their views.

Why is Student Representation important?

Students invest an awful lot into their time at King’s, from time and effort to money and emotion. As a result we believe that every single student here at King’s should be provided with the opportunity to voice their opinion and to offer feedback regarding their experience. Without this feedback both the College and KCLSU cannot improve and cannot resolve the issues its student face.

The Impact of Student Representation?

Student Representation paves the way for a better student experience and the work carried out by Student Reps has a significant impact on all those studying at King’s through the following:

  • Allowing others to make the most of their time at King’s
  • Making the King’s student experience a memorable one
  • Creating a positive driving force behind change
  • Passionately lobbying the College on matters that really matter to students
  • Having a positive effect on the lives of fellow students
  • Bringing students together to work in partnership with each other, the College and KCLSU
  • Standing up together and campaigning in pursuit of change
  • Making valuable suggestions that will change the way King’s operates for the better
