Your Course and Faculty Reps are there to represent your academic interests and to bring up issues that have an effect on your academic studies to the University. They do this through gathering your opinions on your course, and attending School and Faculty level Student Staff Liaison Committees (SSLCs). They are also members of the Education Network, the network that exists to improve all students' educational experience at Bristol.
There are multiple ways you can contact your reps. You can email them, contact them on social media, or talk to them in person! If you're struggling to get in contact with your reps, then you can contact the Representation Team at email@example.com. Your reps should also be seeking out your opinions so that they can take them to the university. Make sure you let them know if you're having issues - problems can't be solved if no one knows they exist!

We hold elections for course reps at two points during the academic year, October and March. Year 1 UG reps and all PGT reps get elected in October, and year 2+ UG reps and PGR reps get elected in March. You'll be hearing a lot from us when election time comes around!
Even if you aren't a course rep, however, you can still be part of the conversation! We have an Education Network that improve all students' academic experience at Bristol. It is open to all students at the University, and will be running events and campaigns throughout the year. You can keep up to date with them on their Facebook page.
It's also really important that you make sure your course and faculty reps are aware of any of the issues you have with your course so that they can bring these problems to the university. They are elected to represent you - so make sure they are doing that!
