What is a course rep?

Course reps are the elected student responsible for talking to students on their course about their educational experience at Durham University.

They are the people on the ground gathering opinions from students about their course; this will vary from the course content to the class sizes and classroom space.

They will also gather opinion on other academic resources such as the books available in the library or facilities available such as computers and online resources.

They will then act as the spokesperson to the University and feeding back outcomes to students.

 

How do I become a course rep?

Course Reps are elected by the students on their course.

Students wanting to be a candidate in the course rep elections can nominate themselves through DUO and provide a manifesto of what they’d do if elected.

If you’d like information prior to nominations opening, please contact: dsu.engagement@durham.ac.uk.

 

Course reps get the chance to work on some exciting projects that make positive improvements for students.

The role of a course rep is not necessarily just highlighting the negative aspects of your course, but also finding out about the good things that happen and sharing best practice.

A course rep can also highlight something that is working well but make suggestions on how it could be even better.

The University really appreciate the work that course reps do too!
