Don't just take our word for it though
Here are some of the Course Reps in previous years, and they’ve got something to tell you.
I love being a course rep because I am able to have a say, and can influence decision making in the department. This year, I suggested that the department arrange workshops to help us with our dissertation, and they have promised to implement the changes in the summer term.
Helene Kjerstad – BA International Relations
We live in a technological age where too often we communicate invisibly. As a Course Rep I’m visible and have encouraged a supportive group identity where we can openly talk to each other and share ideas, concerns, and compare coffee consumption. We belong here, we count, and we have a voice that is listened to by our department. It is a privilege being a Course Rep.
Aine Bryson – MSc Psychology
Being a Course Rep enables me to represent the voice of the students on my course. Given the highly challenging nature of our course, it is always a pleasure helping to raise and discuss any issues that my fellow students may face. In addition to being the voice of the students, I have always been interested in promoting the importance of engagement between the students on my course. For this, I am proud to be currently involved in the planning for an event called “breaking the barriers” for which we have been awarded a Cohort Building Award.
