Course Representatives are student volunteers who represent your views at course-level, at School Forums and in meetings with academic and administrative staff.
A range of Student Voice mechanisms are provided for students to enable them to feed in views on aspects of their course that are working well or on things they believe could be improved. These Student Voice mechanisms include, for example, Module Evaluations, Student Surveys, Focus Groups or Forums, meetings with their Course Director or Dean of School, or opportunities to provide feedback via Course Representatives whose role is to represent the student cohort and participate in course, School and University meetings or via course monitoring, annual review and enhancement processes.
Course Representatives are individuals who are elected by the student body to represent the views of their course. It is their responsibility to feedback the views of their course members at course rep meetings, on different academic matters such as the curriculum and timetabling. Ultimately course reps play a large role in ensuring that students are having the best experience whilst at university.
If you would like more information about the role and how you can become one, or if you would like to find out who the rep for your course is, visit the Students’ Union website.
For the 2020/21 academic year most Course Rep activity, including forums and feedback submission, will be undertaken online.
