What are Student Reps?
Every course at London Met should have a Student Rep, students elected by their peers to represent the voice of students on that course. Student Reps are part of course committees 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. Their role is to raise academic and related issues on behalf of their course to teaching staff, the school and university. They liaise with coursemates, provide feedback to teaching staff and act as a communication channel between the university and students. To find out more about what Student Reps, their duties, what you have to gain and the new skills to learn please see our
Student Rep recruitment presentation and Student Rep recruitment leaflet and our brand new video..
When and how are they elected?
Student Reps are elected during the first few weeks of teaching. In Semester one that means in early to mid-October 2020 and for courses which commence in semester two in late January - early February 2021. Your course leader, with the support of the Students' Union, will over see the election of the Student Reps for your course. Speak to your Couse leader as soon as possible!
