Course Reps are fellow students on each course who collect student feedback and raise issues on behalf of their peers with the relevant department at Student-Staff Committees. They are elected by their peers to represent the student body at Departmental Student Staff Committee meetings. In fulfilling their role, Course Reps actively seek the views of their peers on academic issues relating to their programme and collate the feedback for presentation at Staff Student Committee meetings. They provide a vital link to ensure student voices are heard. They are the first point of contact If students have any issues relating to their course.
Course Reps are expected to proactively pursue improvements to their course or research group and seek to maintain and promote examples of best practice. The Students’ Union aims to have at least one elected course representative per cohort (year) of each degree programme (or, in the case of degree programmes with fewer than 50 students per cohort, each cluster of interconnected courses). For degree programmes with more than 50 students per cohort, the Students’ Union aims to have at least two elected course representatives.
