Firstly congratulations on being a course representative! The very fact that you are reading this means that you have been elected to represent those on your course, and improve the student experience!
Being a course rep is a very important role – important for the institution, for your students’ union and most of all to the students you represent. You act as a key link between the institution and your peers and as a vital link with the students’ union.
Remember that being a rep can sometimes be challenging but everything you achieve, no matter how small, has a positive impact on the student experience of those on your course!
