Course Reps


Course Reps are your first point of contact when it comes to raising issues about your course, and are always happy to listen to any concerns or feedback. They are the most essential part of the Students’ Union Academic Rep system—without them, there would be no link between the student body and the University. 

The number of Course Reps varies from course to course, depending on the size. Their role is to act as students who volunteer to collect and represent the views of fellow course mates, communicate with staff, and channel feedback changes and developments to the students on their course.
They are also responsible for attending meetings:

  • Staff-Student Liaison Committees—meetings with academic staff to shape changes on your course
  • Course Rep Round Tables—meetings with their Senior Academic Rep to pass issues to higher committees and meet Course Reps from across their School

Because Course Reps are supported by the Students' Union, you can trust that any feedback you give will be used for the benefit of your Bath Spa University experience.

Introduction to the Course Rep role

A Course Rep is a student volunteer who represents students on a particular course. Course Reps sign up through the Students’ Union website and elections are held if a particular role is over-subscribed. There are course reps for each academic year. They are responsible for collecting student feedback and acting on it appropriately, either by contacting the relevant member of academic staff, reporting the feedback at SU round tables or university Student-Staff Liaison Committees, or by contacting the SU.

Location: Your home campus (with possible training and events elsewhere)

Time Commitment: 1-2 hours a week, term time only

How long will I be a Rep for? The role lasts for one academic year, though you may decide to sign up again next year

What Being a Course Rep Means for You

Role Responsibilities:

  • To introduce yourselves to the students on your course
  • To introduce yourself to your course leader
  • Be the voice for students studying on your course
  • To collect feedback on a range of academic issues (these areas will be discussed during training):
    • Curriculum
    • Learning and Teaching process
    • Learning resources
    • Assessment and Feedback
    • Student progression and achievement
    • Guidance and support
    • Quality enhancement and assurance
    • University experience
  • To liaise with your Course Leader and lecturers on a regular basis
  • To attend Staff Student Liaison Committees (SSLCs) with teaching staff and School Roundtables with your Senior Academic Rep and Students’ Union staff.
  • To take an active role in projects that seek to improve the student experience
  • Raise issues with Senior Academic Reps, VP Education or Students’ Union Staff that you feel should be raised at a higher level

Training and Opportunities:

  • All Course Reps are expected to complete the introductory training and GDPR training which will be available either in person or online.
  • The Students’ Union will be running additional training sessions throughout the year. These are optional but will provide you opportunities to develop your skills and enhance your CV.
  • The Students’ Union will also run course rep socials and get-togethers in the year.

Course Reps Support:

  • Access to further resources such as the Course Rep Handbook and role descriptions
  • Course Reps can talk to their Senior Academic Rep for any issues they believe need to be escalated in their School or Field
  • Course Reps can contact Ceri, the VP Education, for assistance and guidance on academic issues
  • Course Reps can also contact the Student Voice Co-ordinator for any general queries or assistance relating to their roles

Benefits:

  • Gain lots of transferrable skills – the more you engage with the role, the more opportunities and the more skills you develop. These skills can be presented to future employers through CVs, personal statements and interviews
  • You can use your hours as a Course Rep towards the Bath Spa Award.
  • Networking with a variety of people from different areas of expertise
  • Most importantly, improve your course!
