Academic Council

The Academic Council exists to better support Class Reps and to enable better communication between students, the Students’ Union, and the University. Academic Council meets 4 times a year, it is chaired by the Student President. It gives Class Reps a chance to hear about any news and updates regarding the teaching and learning experience at QMU. The Academic Council is also an opportunity to get extra support or advice from peers and the Students’ Union. Class Reps can raise issues with the Student President that they think affect students across the university, as well as helping each other resolve course specific issues and share examples of successes on their course. All Class Reps are automatically members of the Academic Council. All students are welcome to attend and bring forward an item for discussion.
