What is a Course Rep?

Course Representatives are elected students who represent you and your views on academic matters on your course. They are your first point of contact should you have any constructive feedback or ideas for your course.

Course Reps attend programme level meetings, Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) and UPSU representative meetings and forums. Course Reps are supported by academics, Students' Union staff, the relevant School Representatives and the Vice President Education.
