If you are thinking of applying to be a Course Rep for either Coventry University London or CU London, then carry on reading as we explain a little bit more about the role!
Course Reps are vital to ensuring the best possible student experience at CU London and Coventry University London. There a group of courses that are under-represented and currently do not have Reps!
The Course Rep System is run by Your Students' Union and exists to give you a voice on your University experience. Course Reps are appointed students who meet with University and Union staff to represent the academic interests of their peers.
Throughout the term, Course Reps gather feedback from their peers and then bring this to Student Voice Meetings with the University and Students’ Union. This feedback is then either resolved in the meeting or actions are taken away by Staff. All students in meetings are given a voice and a platform to improve the student experience!
