What have our students got to say about being a Course Rep?

"Being a rep can help you be more aware of what’s going on in and around the university! Being a rep is one way to help become more confident and to help with university life. It also helped me with my personal life, knowing that I’ve got support from university."

"Being a rep for first year law has not only made me capable of making a difference for my classmates but it has also enabled me to get to know them all on a one to one basis as well."

"Being a rep made me feel a part of a great team. I’ve made new friends and got to voice what my classmates had to say. It helped build my confidence with speaking out."

"Being a first year policing student rep has allowed me to gain confidence in communication. It has also been an ice breaker with the rest of my fellow class mates and has been great to help them with issues that affect the whole class."

"Being a course rep has helped build my confidence and allowed me to develop new skills. I have found it very rewarding to see changes happen around university because of the feedback I have given on behalf of my class. It's is also a great opportunity to meet new people outside of your course."
