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.
A big welcome to all our semester two starter students. Your course leaders will be during the first few weeks of the semester facilitating election for student reps for each year of each course. They will then pass your contact details to us and we will be in touch regarding training etc. Please see below for information:

Student reps are elected in October 2019 by their course mates. Their role is to raise academic and related issues on behalf of their course to teaching staff, the school and university. They liaise with course mates, provide feedback to teaching staff and act as a communication channel between the university and students. They can signpost students to relevant university services.
