Every course at London Met should have a Student Rep. They are students elected by their peers to represent the voice of students on that course. Student Reps sit on course committee meetings and other school committees to represent the views of students and give them a voice in the decision-making process. They take up and act on concerns on behalf of students and provide feedback to the University. They are also a great way for the University and Students' Union to keep students informed and up-to-date on current issues.
Academic Year 2018-19 - How do I become a Student Rep?
Course Leaders will brief their course during the first three weeks of teaching (October 2018 or February 2019) and then run elections for their courses. They then need to let the Students' Union know who has been elected as the Student Rep. If you are interested in becoming a Student Rep you should discuss with your Course Leader during these three weeks. Your course leader will brief the course on what a Student Rep is, their role etc. They will run an election to elect Student Reps for each year of each course. Student Reps will be elected by all students on the course in that year.
