What are Programme Reps?

Programme reps are students who are elected by their peers to represent all students on their particular course.


Each year we have around 450 programme reps giving them the potential to be one of the most influential groups on the campus.

We really recommend that you take advantage of this great opportunity and get involved and become Programme Reps; it is a great opportunity to become part of a team, and enhance your CV whilst being at the forefront of educational developments at Loughborough. 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.
