What do Student Experience Reps do?

Student Expedience Reps are there to voice student thoughts, opinions and feedback from their courses on a variety of themes, these can be academic and non-academic as well as being positive and negative. Course Reps and Faculty Reps are both expected to attend training sessions once elected.

Student Experience Reps?

Student Experience Reps are split into two areas, Course Reps and Faculty Reps, firstly there are Course Reps which represent their students on their course within their year of study, and they will gather feedback from their fellow students on various topics surrounding academic and non-academic areas, these could be both positive and negative. Course Rep elections will take place in class within your first few weeks of term.
