Course Reps


What is a Course Rep?

Academic Representation at the University of Wolverhampton starts with our students, whose experience and academic success is at the heart of everything we are striving to enhance. It is the verbalised individual and shared experiences of our students that creates a voice for students, it is then through our representation structure that these students are then given a platform to air their voice.

The structure comprises of a simple four step system;

Students > Course Reps > School Reps > Full-Time Officers



Student representation currently occurs at three levels within the University of Wolverhampton:

  1. Course Reps - represent students within their course/subject/year group/cohort/pathway etc.

  2. School Reps - represent students from all courses within their School.

  3. The Academic Officer - is the Students’ Union Full- Time elected representative and represents students at University level. This position also represents smaller groups of students/individuals where appropriate.

Course Reps are an integral part of Student Voice, they are a key link between, students, staff, the University and the Students’ Union. Whose soul focus is on the improvement of the academic experience on course and the wider campus experience.
