We value your feedback as we want to know what is working for you and what we could improve. Throughout the year there are opportunities for you to have your say about a variety of topics, in a variety of ways.
Student course representatives’ (often referred to as 'Course Reps') act as a voice for the students on their course, providing feedback to the University and Christ Church Students’ Union on their academic experience as well as wider student issues.
Between 26 September - 10 October, Course teams will be asking for students to put themselves forward as Course Reps.
If you’re interested in taking on this rewarding role, just let a member of teaching staff on your course know, and they will arrange an in-class vote.
The natural skills that you need to be a student rep are good communication and good rapport-building skills so being able to develop relationships with your peers and also with your lecturers. Definitely put yourself forward as a student rep if you can because the skills that you can develop will really benefit you in the future.Alice, 3rd year Sociology student and course rep
To be a Course Rep, you don’t need any prior experience, just enthusiasm and a willingness to get involved! The Students’ Union and the University jointly provide training and ongoing support.
In return, you get the satisfaction of knowing you’ve made a positive different to the experience of your fellow students. You’ll also be able to develop transferable skills which can help with your future employability.
Each year, whatever you're level of study, you're able to take part in the national student surveys. These give you a chance to have your say about your wider student experience and shape your future at Christ Church. The 2023 national surveys will launch early next year.
