Course reps are the elected students responsible for talking to other 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, including computers and online resources.
They will then act as the spokesperson to the University and feed back outcomes to students.
We’re currently looking for our next cohort of course reps. If you’d like your voice heard and to instigate improvements on your course, go to duo to apply.
If you’d like any further information, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Course reps are constantly involved in a wide variety of research and activities, in cooperation with the wider Students’ Union as well as their departments and faculties. In the recent past, course reps have successfully conducted research with their peers which led to example exam papers and answers being made available by departments, and have lobbied the University and created campaigns to resist proposed course closures.
To achieve this, course reps have worked at a variety of levels with everyone from professors and peers to the local community, created online surveys and petitions, and impacted the academic life of thousands of Durham students.
