Student representatives

The study-unit ‘PSY2650 - Student Representation at University’ will be on offer again at the University for the academic year 2020/2021

The role

Student Representatives are the link between students and the University.

Student Representatives on Council, Senate, Boards of the Faculties, Institutes, Centres and Schools and students participating in Senate-recognised Student Societies at the University of Malta are committed to:

  • make a difference
  • achieve change
  • improve the students’ experience on campus.

Recognition

Participation and contribution on the various University Boards and Senate-recognised Student Societies will now be officially acknowledged on the transcript. As from academic year 2018/19, a new optional study-unit, PSY2650 – Student Representation at University, has been offered.
This study-unit will be on offer again during the current academic year.

This optional study-unit will combine experiential learning with active reflection on that learning. The aim of this study-unit is to facilitate student participation in a number of meetings within University structures as well as student participation in Senate-recognised Student Societies and the development of interpersonal and group skills.

Students can register for PSY2650 as an extra study-unit; this is applicable for students following courses where all study-units are compulsory. Other students can opt for this unit as an optional study-unit. Details are available online.

To register for PSY2650 students are expected to:

  • be currently student representatives or intending to contest the student representatives elections during the current academic year or are currently members in Senate-recognised Student Societies
  • attend regularly Board Meetings
  • attend the 3 Seminars which are held during the year.

The Seminars will be held on 11 November 2020, 2 December 2020 (Online) and 13 January 2021 between 12:00 - 14:00 at Arts Lecture Theatre - P.P. Saydon Lecture Theatre.

Students are strongly encouraged to register for this study-unit as such training will enable participants to be better and more effective representatives of fellow students.
