Being a Student Rep


Student Reps volunteer their time to help make university life the best it can be by collecting feedback from their students and sharing it with the university.


What Reps do


1. Reps talk to their students to collect feedback about ALL issues impacting the student experience.  Reps record this feedback on SimOn - the simple online feedback tool.


2. They then use this to represent the collated student views at relevant University meetings and work with staff to create positive change.


3. Share with their students & SUBU what’s happened as a result of giving this feedback.


Why become a Rep

Here are great reasons to become a Student Rep:

  • Gain transferable skills like public speaking, diplomacy, leadership, and more
  • Capture these skills in the SUBU Leadership Award, boosting your CV
  • Having a real impact on student life at BU
  • Have fun and make friends along the way
  • Full training before you start the role…and a free hoodie


How to become a Rep

  • Make it known to your Lecturer or Programme Leader at the start of your year that you’d like to be a Student Rep.  A small election will be held within your course (nothing scary, don't worry -  it’s usually done within your seminar)
