Each year of each course has at least one Course Rep. Course Reps are the key link between students and staff in their school.
They seek out students' views and represent them at Staff Student Liaison Committee (SSLC) meetings, work in partnership with staff to improve their course and resolve any course-related issues as they arise throughout the year. Course Reps work closely with the Students' Union to campaign for change and make things better for students.
We have produced a short Course Rep Guide that tells you a bit more about Course Reps and also how you can become one. You can download it here.
Course Rep Training
We know that effective representatives are trained not born, so the Students' Union provides full training and support for all Course Reps.
Course Reps learn and develop valuable skills that help to improve their employability. All Course Reps are invited to a special awards ceremony at the end of the year where they receive a certificate to recognise their contribution.
For further information on the Course Rep training available go to the Course Rep Training page.
Course Rep Social Events
We also hold regular (alcohol free) social events for our Reps to say thank you and to help them get to know each other.
