Upcoming training sessions for Your Education Award participants
Each year we have around 450 programme reps giving them the potential to be one of the most influential groups on the campus.

Becoming a Programme Rep leads to future opportunity’s, for example the chance to become a Programme President.
Programme reps are the main point of call for students who have problems, issue or ideas relating to their course. Programme reps voice these views at Staff Student Liaison Committee meetings which occur termly. At these meetings a number of academic staff meets with Programme Reps to help overcome problems students encounter over the academic year. In addition to this Programme Reps receive Department specific training and a Department specific resource pack which is given to assist them with their role throughout the year. On-going guidance and support is provided by the VP Education and Student Voice.
