Students’ Union

No matter what LIT campus you study on, you will have an open Students’ Union Community to welcome you and to become part of.

LITSU Mission Statement

LITSU represent the students of LIT by listening, understanding and supporting their development.

This will be achieved by increased student engagement, advocacy, visibility, interaction to develop & nurture an innovative and creative environment where students can flourish and reach their full potential.

Why is there a Students’ Union?

College can be tough going, days can be long and so many other personal matters can pop up on top of it all. This can be an overwhelming combination.

The Students’ Union is here to support you. We will offer you a safe space to chill out amongst this madness, a space where you can talk/cry/laugh or rant with no judgement!

It is important to embrace your student voice and charisma. We are here to help you utilise your voice. We will help guide you in having a hell of a good time socially, while doing well in your studies!

How do we achieve this?

  • We work closely with LIT Student Services and help you find the supports you may need.
  • We sit on the main meetings with LIT Management such as Academic Council and Governing Body and represent the students, this is where the development of LIT takes place.
  • We are actively part of USI and represent LIT students nationally.
  • We facilitate Clubs and Societies, and host events for our students, these events aim to suit the interests of each specific campus.
  • We have a strong connection with LIT Class Reps. See more information below

Class Representatives

Throughout the 1st six weeks in the new academic year, each class elects a Class Rep, this is a vital part of the experience of a student.

Class Reps are one of the most important groups in representing students and frontline in the changes made for students in LIT.

A Class Rep is a student Liaison with the SU and staff

They represent their classes allowing the SU understand the problems students are facing on a day to day bases. This helps us ensure the student body get the best possible educational, personal and development opportunities as a student in LIT.

Class Reps sit of Programme Board meetings, directly giving constructive feedback to course staff on behalf of the class.

A Class Rep is an ambassador for their class

They are actively engaged in student training events and in organising class-based activities.

Personal and professional skill development

Class reps are Leaders within the Institute. They operate on a voluntary basis to enhance the student experience and campus life. With this, comes new skills and experiences which offers the opportunity to strengthen their CV.

Extracurricular development during your studies such as; being a Class Reps and Active leadership in Clubs and Societies is a much-desired quality for many potential employers.

Clubs and Societies

Clubs and Societies are always developing in LIT, on all campuses! They are set up and run by students and facilitated by the SU. They are fantastic way of making friends outside of class, gaining new skills and enjoying your time in college aside of lectures. As like being Class Rep, they are also a big part of creating a leading CV for potential employers.

If you have an idea for a society that you believe would be beneficial and fun for students, then don’t delay and get contact the Students’ Union. We will help you in stetting up and getting started!
