Course reps are a vital part of the hundreds of students and student representatives working to make UEA an even better place to learn. From your education officers, to faculty convenors, collectively reps can and do bring about positive change to the academic experience at UEA.
More than ever universities place importance on student engagement, understanding that if students can shape their learning they learn better. Reps are an integral part of that movement. As well as the experience and skills gained from being a rep, and positive changes made, we at uea|su want to make sure the experience is as fun and rewarding as possible!
During your first few weeks of lectures, rep elections will take place within your course. Each school has a Student Partnership Officer who is responsible for organising these elections and making sure all students know the ins and outs of being a rep!
Once elections have taken place, we at the union provide training, monthly forums, and socials for all reps - a chance to get together, develop new skills and techniques and get to know other reps from across the institution.
If you're interested in being a rep, would like to find out who your Student Partnership Officer is, or would just like more information, contact Lindsay on L.Westgarth@uea.ac.uk
