Become a Rep
Becoming a Student Rep is a great opportunity and it should never take up too much of your time. A Student Rep commits to just 3 meetings per term that will last no more than 1 hour.
Our level 6 Undergraduate Reps spend a little more time in attending the Higher Education Programme Board – representing their course alongside one Rep for each Degree course.
The rest of the role is making sure to communicate with students to gain feedback. This can be just chatting to course mates or maybe more formally through suggestion boxes. We’ve got loads of different methods to gain feedback and we’ll help you find the best way for you!
But what are the benefits?
As a Student Rep you’ll get to learn and develop a whole bunch of skills that will make you stand out from the crowd in the world of employment. From leadership and communication skills, problem solving and negotiations, collecting information and time management, to meeting etiquette and building confidence – the list goes on!
Not only does putting Student Rep on your CV look fantastic, but you also meet loads of different students from different courses, hopefully starting potential opportunities for collaboration.
Leeds Arts Union provides all Student Reps with training, support and advice throughout their time in the role! Making sure that you gain as much experience and as many skills out of the role as possible.
Sounds great – so how do I become a Rep?
Each course democratically elects their own Student Reps every year in October. Every student votes on who they would like to represent them.
