A Course Rep is a student who represents their course mates' academic
views and concerns. Course Reps represent their course
mates by listening to their views and concerns and sharing that information
with staff who can then take action by making any appropriate and
necessary changes. Reps also play an important role in closing the feedback
loop by working with staff to ensure their course mates are aware of
the impact their feedback has had.

Your Course Leader will organise Course Rep Elections by the end of week
four of your academic calendar. This is the case for all first year students
(both undergraduates and postgraduates), regardless of course. If you are thinking of standing for the role, we recommend that you speak to your
Course Leader before the Course Rep Elections take place. During the
Election, candidates will explain why they would like to take on the role
and then your course mates will vote by way of secret ballot.
If you have any questions or if you are not sure who your Course Leader is,
please email our Student Voice Assistant, Jodie Stilgoe, at
