We provide support for course reps throughout the College via a combination of training/induction sessions, targeted one-to-one meetings, and helping students engage with academic departments to solve their issues.



If you are a new course representative, you will be contacted by Natalie Bates within the first few weeks of term.

Alternatively, if you’re a returning rep and you feel you could benefit from a refresher, please email Natalie.



We have an Academic Representation Coordinator who works solely with course reps all year round to provide answers to questions, to work with both you and your department to resolve any problems that might arise and to put on some fun social events for all the reps to come together and relax after a term of working really hard to change structures within their department.


We also provide extra training sessions throughout the year to ensure that you are able to tackle anything that comes your way. This includes an invitation to the initial training session to get you on your feet as a rep and training you to be able to run great campaigns to influence and create

change. You could also get involved in the campaigns being run by the VP Education and we endeavour to make sure that you are comfortable within the role. You also have the opportunity to attend our Course Rep Conference if you so wish.


Finally, we also offer personal development opportunities to help you improve your transferable skills for when you leave university. Every year, we run 1-2-1 sessions with our Academic Representation Coordinator, where you get to meet up and discuss how you can progress as a course rep.
