Course Rep Hub

About

Being a course rep is more than just attending meetings. Students become course reps because they either want to represent your peers, ensure that they get the best facilities and resources for their degree, feedback what is good and what could be improved, and because they want to further develop your personal skills. All are valid reasons and there are many more.
