Being a rep does not involve being seen as the teacher’s favourite or spending most of your time at university on rep activities.

Being a rep is a blend of significant advantages and little time commitment! Reps are the key link between students and staff and help bring positive change to your educational experience.

Types of reps

  • School Reps are responsible for representing all students within your school on matters relating to the learning experience. They will also receive a payment of £300 per semester.
  • Education Reps are responsible for representing students within your course grouping on matters relating to the learning experience.
  • Education Transformation Reps can sign up to participate in themed micro-opportunities such as focus groups, CQEM and earn digital badges for their CV with each opportunity. If you don't have the time commitment to sign up to be a rep but still want to hear about Your Education opportunities and news, this is the perfect role for you.

What’s in it for you?

  • The ability to make an impact on yours and your fellow students’ university experience.
  • It looks great on your CV and gives you the opportunity to network with university staff and students.
  • It’s an amazing way to make new friends from various countries.
  • It’s an opportunity to receive digital badges, which can be displayed on LinkedIn.

If you are interested in any of the above roles, find out more and apply online. 😊
