Course Rep Elections 2017-18

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.

To become a Course Rep, you need to be elected by the students on your course during an election run by the Students’ Union. Elections take place at the beginning of each academic year for First Year Reps, those on one-year taught postgraduate courses and some vacancies for continuing students. Once elected, Reps remain in post for the duration of their course, unless they resign or their course mates call for an election.
