Rep Week is starting on Monday and it gives our academic representation system a chance to show off its many successes on a departmental level. Just last month a record number of students voted in our Your Rep Elections and there are now over 400 Academic Reps working, for you, in every department of College. Their aim is to improve your education.
There have already been some great successes in your department and we will be showcasing some of these throughout the week, which runs from 26 - 30 November. Keep checking the Union website and follow our hashtag #loveyourep on Twitter.
According to the Union Survey at the end of last year 33% of undergraduate students didn’t know who their Academic Reps were. In response we have launched our “Your Representatives A-Z” section of the Union website. This is your one-stop shop to find out who is your Academic Rep as well as your Liberation Zone reps or Halls reps if you are a first year. To see the “Your Representatives A-Z” please click here.
If you want to come talk to your reps and you want to give us some suggestions of how to improve your course then come to the Junior Common Room between 12:00 -14:00 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. We will be rewarding the three best suggestions with £20 Union vouchers and you can even tweet your suggestions by giving your course and using #loveyourrep on Twitter.
