The Reading Student Charter

Hello students,
Term has now started for everyone and it is time to settle down and get on with your degree.
In the run up, you may have been given a copy of The Reading Student Charter and may be wondering what it is and what it isn’t.
So here is a brief overview:
What it is…
  •  It is a document that describes the mutual expectations that students have of the University and its staff, what the University and its staff have of the students and what we all expect of each other.
  • It is a working document that will be reviewed in the Spring Term, so that we can be sure that it is working for you.
  • It is something that you can have your say on. Any Student Officer will be happy to speak to you about it so they can feedback to make sure that it stays relevant to your expectations of the University.
What it isn’t…
  • It is not a legally binding document.
  • It is not a document that is used by staff to tell students what to do.
  • It is not a document that can be used by students to tell staff how to do their job.
Sir David Bell ,Vice Chancellor of the University of Reading and I signed the document this week and then walked around the campus to talk to you about it and to work out what the document will mean to you.

The Student Officers will be asking you what you think about it throughout the year, so make sure you keep it up on your wall so that you are well aware of the mutual expectations that we all have for each other.
If you would like to pick up a copy of the Charter, they are available at the RUSU Reception. Alternatively you can access it online.
So if you have any questions about the document, do not hesitate to contact me.
See you around campus and good luck with the rest of term!
James FletcherRUSU President
