Represent Fellow Students

As you make your way through University life you might be attracted by the need to improve the quality of student life on campus, or to further things for the student body as a whole. There are many ways that you can represent your fellow students as part of Maynooth Students' Union.

MSU Academic REP

An Academic REP  strives to make the college experience of every single student here better. Academic REPs represent the students in their course within their Faculty. For example, if you were a First Year undergraduate studying music you could become the Academic REP for your year in music within the Faculty of Arts alongside reps for music technology and other music courses.

As an Academic REP you’ll provide the vital link between both the officers of the Union and the general student body, whether this is coming into your Education Officer to say that your class feels annoyed about a problem with facilities, or going to a lecturer and giving some constructive feedback about their class.
