Considering becoming a rep? 

What does a rep do?

At the end of the day the reason you're here is to get a degree. Helping you achieve this is one of our main goals! This is why we run something called the Reps system to help make sure your degree programme is the best it can be.

Student Reps volunteer their time to represent students on their course. They help you make changes to your course by collecting feedback and ensuring that we pass on your views to the people who make the decisions.  We work closely with the University, and our officers and Academic reps sit on most decision-making panels in the University. 

How much time will I be giving?

You can give as much time as you can. You are here to study after all. 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.

Will I receive any training?

Training is delivered via an online platform and is available for you to work through at your own pace. In total, the initial training should take no more than an hour to complete and looks at:
- Being an effective Rep
- Academic Meetings
- Dealing with Student Issues
- How to effectively communicate

We will continue to add training through out the year which will be designed to improve and develop your skills moving forward.
