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 represent the cohort (the level/year of their course) around academic and related issues affecting more than one student. They provide feedback to staff, give students a voice, raise issues on behalf of their cohort, and discuss solutions.

Election of Student Reps for 2023-24
Course Leaders or their nominees will facilitate the election of Student Reps during the first few weeks of teaching at the start of the semester. Cohorts that are 'continuing' i.e. moving from one year/level to the next one may elect their student Reps for the forthcoming academic year at the end of the previous one. re likely to have already elected their reps. New cohorts will elect their reps in October 2023. Students studying semester two start courses (February start) elect their reps at this time. All students should be given the opportunity to stand for the role and the decision reached democratically.
Brand new for autumn 2023 we have two new Student Rep recruitment videos. The video on the left gives an overview of why you should become a Student Rep. The video on the right looks at the skills you can develop by being a Student Rep:

School Rep Assistants
School Rep Assistants are Student Reps main contact point within the Students' Union. Keep in touch with them, and inform them of the feedback you give and the issues you are raising with your teaching staff. Let them know if you are experiencing any difficulties or need any further training. School Rep Assistants are current London Met students (and often Student Reps) employed by the Students' Union to support Student Reps. They can be contacted via email and also run a weekly in-person drop in, so pop along and say hello!

Course Committee Meetings (CCMs)
These are meetings organised by your school, rather than the Students' Union. Key stakeholders such as course leaders, other academics, library staff, and most importantly Student Reps meet to discuss and review the course. They are a time for reps to provide feedback to staff, raise issues, and discuss solutions. They are mandatory for Student Reps to attend, i.e. you must attend. Your Course Leader should ensure they are held at a time when you do not have a class. The meetings for the 2023/24 Academic Year will be announced after the academic year begins.
LMSU Volunteers 2023-24
Once elected, Student Reps will be enrolled in our new LMSU Volunteers 2023-24 Weblearn Organisation. It is designed to be a training repository, where LMSU student volunteers (such as Student Reps) can undertake further training covering using data, leadership, equality, and diversity, safeguarding, using google mail, docs and calendar, email etiquette etc. Student Reps will be enrolled in it in October 2023. If you don't see it as an option on your weblearn by the end of October, please contact your School Rep Assistant.
Student Council, LMSU Leaders Election, and other Student Voice activities
There are 24 seats on the Student Council reserved for Student Reps. Student Reps are also encouraged to get involved in other student voice activities such as our Members Meeting.
LMSU believes all students are leaders in the making. Let us develop your leadership skills through our Leaders mailing list. We will send you regular email updates with information on activities, workshops, and events, and similarly designed to reveal the leader in you. Perhaps you will become a candidate in our Leaders Election in March 2024? To sign up for our Leaders Mailing List please click here.
The Students' Union holds a variety of other activities and events outside of the Student Voice area. Check out our homepage for more information.
