Course Rep Elections – Who’s in control of your education?

0

PrintDid you know that a whole army of Course Reps are elected by students every year to represent students’ views about their learning experience?

Any kind of student can become a Course Rep; undergraduate, first year, final year, postgraduate or researcher. They can be 18 or 80, live in halls or at home, come from down the road or all the way from China! They all have one thing in common; they care about having the best academic experience possible, and helping their classmates and colleagues to do the same.

Course Reps have made a huge difference at Bangor over the last few years. More books in the library; faster computers; a stronger WiFi network; logical timetabling; improved assessment methods and a brand new way to evaluate and give feedback on your modules – these are just some of the things that Course Reps have helped to bring about in the last academic year.

Your school will be asking interested students to put themselves forward to be a Course Rep within the next two weeks. You don’t need any previous experience, as your Students’ Union will train and support you every step of the way.

What are you waiting for?

Find out more about the role on the SU Website (bangorstudents.com/coursereps) or contact us at coursereps@bangorstudents.com / 01248 383651. Then when you’re ready, let your school know and go and get yourself elected – good luck!
