Course Reps are there to represent you. They are students who have volunteered to be the voice of their classmates, develop community and work to make Student Experience at UCB better.
What is a course rep?
Course reps do exactly what is says in the name – they represent their coursemates within the University and the Guild. This means that when students need to be consulted on things such as changes to university policy, new initiatives, and feedback on students’ experiences of their course, course reps are often the first people we turn to.
If you like listening to your course mates’ views, speaking to university departments, and working with the Guild to make change happen then this is the perfect role for you.
How much time will it take?
The role is voluntary, and it is generally expected that it will take a few hours every month. If you put yourself forward, you will be a course rep for that academic year.
Will I receive support in this role?
Yes! The Guild will put on a number of training sessions to make sure you feel like you are able to make the most of your role. A lot of the skills will be transferrable, ranging from policy writing to public speaking, and will no doubt be useful in whatever career you choose to pursue in the future.
I would like more information before I put myself forward?
If you would like to ask any questions please feel free to pop down to the Guild office in Moss House on Thursday afternoons and ask for Joe. Alternatively, you can email email@example.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
