Student Reps exist to represent students on their course or department, and they raise problems (as well as successes), with the Union and the University which we then fight to resolve! Reps bring issues about their course or student experience (halls, buses, catering etc.) to University staff to develop and enhance their experience.
You can give as much time as you can. You are here to study afterall. You will be invited to meetings with the University or invited to take part in focus groups. The more you do, the more you will be recognised by the Union and University. It is all about giving back to you course and your fellow students, so they will be looking to you for feedback. The role usually takes 1-2 hours of your time per week, so shouldn't take too much of your time.
You will be invited to our Union Conference, which will take place in the first couple of weeks in semester 1. You will receive training on how to be a rep and meet staff from the Union and University. If you miss the conference, we can still provide you the resources and if we have enough interest, we can hold a training session during the semester.
You can contact the Brookes Union Reps team. They are here to help support and train you in your role. If you are ever unsure or want to ask a question, you can come and see them at the Brookes Union Reception (located in the John Henry Brookes Building) or contact them via email or telephone. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org and our number is 01865 484750, just ask for a member of the Reps team.
