What are Course Representatives?
Course Reps are a group of students who act as the voice of all the other students on their course in their year. There are two Course Reps for each year of each course. They are they crucial link between students, University and the Students' Union.
They listen to their course mates about any issues, problems and even the good things related to their course and pass that information back on to the Academic Committee and Students' Union in regular meetings. They then pass information back to the students to ensure that everyone is kept in the loop.
What things do they deal with?
You can talk to your Course Rep about anything to do with your course, positive or negative. They'll not only take your information and pass it on to the Academic Committee, but their Course Rep training will give them the information they need to signpost students to the relevant people regarding many different issues.
How do I contact my Course Rep?
Your Course Rep will make themselves known to their course by doing shout-outs in lectures once a term and will occasionally send out emails to encourage comments and engagement. However, if you don't know who your Course Rep is and you want to contact them you can speak to your course tutor or email the Students' Union on email@example.com and request their contact details.
