Top Tips​


1. Surveys

Surveys are a great way to collect opinions from students and get their thoughts on relevant issues, ideas, and changes. 

2. Communicate Successes

Share successes, big and small, with other students and Course Reps!

3. Work with other Reps

Collaboration is the key to success as a Rep. Help each other, share ideas, and work together to improve the student experience across the University.

4. Signpost

5. Remember you're a volunteer

You aren't expected to have all the answers. 

6. Ask for help from the Union

The Union is here to provide support and guidance for Course Reps. Don't hesitate to contact the Union and let us know how we can help you in your role.

7. Close the feedback loop

8. Link up with Departmental Societies

Working together makes the student experience better for everyone! 

9. Be visible

10. Face-to-face

Getting to know the other Reps and students, and working with them in person, is a great way to build relationships and have open channels of communication.
