Student Rep Recruitment Video 2021-22 (coming soon)
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 thei cohort (the level/year of their course) aroun academic and related issues affecting more than one students. They provide feedback to staff, raise issues on behalf of their cohort, disucss solutions and give students a voice in the decision-making process. For full information on all things Student Rep related please view our Student Rep handbook 2021-22 (coming soon).
Election of Student Reps for 2020-21
Depending on the course and the cohort (level or year of the course), Student Reps for academic year 2021-22 were either elected in May 2021 or will be elected in October 2021. Cohorts which were 'continuing' in May 2021 for example level 4 (year 1) courses going into level 5 (year 2) are likely to have already elected their reps. New cohorts will elect their reps in October 2021. Your Course Leader will facilitate the election of Student Rep for your cohort. All students should be given the opportunity to stand for the role and the decision reached democratically.

Student Rep Training
All student reps need to be trained. Starting in October 2021 we will be rolling out a comprehensive training programme for new reps, a refresher training course for continuing reps an once again our 'advanced' training' for those interested covering subjects like using data, leadership, equity, diversity and inclusion. Details of training dates and times, locations and how to register will appear on this site in late September 2021.
Student Rep Training - 'on-demand'
We also offer an 'on-demand' training programme, which Student Reps can complete on-line, when they like and at their own pace. It will be available on this site in late September 2021. The on-demand training programme was launched in 2020 and has received very good feedback from Student Reps.
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 Students' Union have advised schools to hold these, if at all possible, in early-mid November (semester one) and in mid-late March (semester two).
Student Rep School-wide Meetings
The meetings take place in each School once a semester. They are attended by Student Reps, key Students' Union and School staff. The discuss school-wide issues reps may raise and thematic areas of interest. Reps and staff work together to co-develop solutions. They are mandatory for rep to attend, unless you have a class. Full details of Student Rep School-wide meetings will be posted on this site nearer the time.
22nd November-8th December 2021 - School-wide meetings to take place.
