    Student Reps talk to students on their course, listen to their opinions and tell the University and Students' Union what the students really think and represent the School at Union Council.

    Being the lead student representatives of the School they voice all their fellow Reps' concerns in regular meetings with the Head of the School. Reps Council is a chance for all Reps from across the University to get together and discuss the academic issues affecting everyone - libraries, exams, the academic offering, performance assessment and feedback, Turnitin and Space to Think. Reps socialise with people from their courses and across the entire university, establishing a wide network of contacts – both students and staff.

    A Rep can be any student who cares about the experience that students have at Brookes.
