Why be a Course Rep?

Why not? 

More and more employers are looking past your degree and asking for evidence of other interests and commitments. Being a course rep is the perfect example of your skills and talents outside of your academic studies. Not only does it help your employability, but being a course rep also helps you meet new people and even be in the running for awards and prizes for all your hard work. 


How to become a Course Rep?

Elections are course specific and you are elected by the democratic votes of your course mates! Each course will get the opportunity to elect a course rep and despite each course varying in number, each rep is equally as important in delivering the thoughts of their course mates!
