Every year of every course at Brighton has at least one Course Representative and in total there are more than 1,000 Course Reps at the University of Brighton and Partner Colleges
Course Reps are an essential link between students and staff. By finding out their fellow students views about the course and then discussing these views with staff—both informally and at staff/student meetings, Course Reps ensure that the university takes into account the views of students and help improve and develop their course.

How to become a Course Rep
Course Reps are elected at the begining of the academic year, your Course Leader should discuss the role with your course and ask for people to nominate themselves at the beginning of term. There should then be an informal election to vote on who should become the Course Rep, if the course is large the role is often shared.
