Course Representatives
Course reps are the official voice of the students on your course.  They will attend meetings with academic staff from your department and school and you will be expected to give feedback on how students feel about their teaching and learning.  Some Course Reps may also be asked to attend Quality Forums and consultations with other key members of staff and heads of services.

  • Mature Students’ Officer
