Have you got something to say about your course? Becoming a course representative is a great way to make a difference, not only on your course but to your student experience, and potentially influence its direction and content. The reason you’re at UCLan is to learn, and the Union want to make sure the university does its best to support you each step of the way. Becoming a course rep means you are a vital liaison point between staff and students, and you can make sure that your course mates can have their say.
What did last year’s reps say?
“I enjoyed being a course rep because it gave me an opportunity to get problems solved for the people on my course and feel like a useful part of the class. It's a great system for getting issues out in the open that classmates might not want to raise on their own. Also it gave me an insight into the way that UCLan runs behind the scenes.”- 2nd Year Rep
“I really enjoyed my time as a student rep for two main reasons. Firstly, knowing what is going on in uni, and secondly having the ability to speak about mine and others’ concerns made me feel like part of the uni.” - 1st Year Rep
“I think it was useful to be able to voice my fellow collegues’ views to our tutors and be able to give them feedback efficiently. Generally for me I just like to know what's going on, and been able to get on with it really, see that issues are addressed etc.” - 2nd Year Rep
“Being a course rep was a great way to find out more about my course. It felt good to know that the uni was taking into account what the students were saying. It’s also made me a lot more confident, especially when speaking in meetings, which is going to be useful in the future!” - 3rd Year Rep
