What is a Course Rep?

Course Reps are students elected by their peers to represent their interests and opinions to the University and Bristol SU. For undergraduate programmes, there will typically be one Course Rep per twenty to forty students, whilst postgraduate Course Reps will often have a higher Rep to Students ratio.

The Course Rep seeks to improve the academic experience of their fellow students by reporting issues and areas to develop. They collect feedback and relay this to staff in their School or Department, and advice with how changes may be implemented. Course Reps are also a vital link between the student body and the Students' Union, and are considered full voting members of Student Council.

Returning Undergraduate Course Reps are elected in March each year, while Year 1 Course Reps are elected in October.
