Becoming a Student Rep... Guidance for staff and students If you are interested in becoming a Student Rep first speak to your Course Director who will inform you of the arrangements for choosing a Student Rep on your course. It is important that students elect their Student Reps so that they can choose the most effective and appropriate candidate and so the Rep has the support of his/her peers. These elections do not have to be complicated, a show of hands is sufficient. If an election is unnecessary because a candidate is uncontested then staff should ensure that students on the course agree to the appointment. All students have the right to stand for election and courses have to ensure that part-time students are given the same opportunity as full-time students.

Election Times Student Reps are elected each year by the student body. Elections for Student Reps will normally be held in the second week of the first semester. Names and contact details must be submitted to the Academic Registry member of the SRCG by October 17th 2008 for courses starting in September 2008. Election timing has been set for these periods so that students can get to know each other and then choose their representatives before the first Board of Study meeting. If Course Directors have any questions about Student Reps they are welcome to contact the Representation Coordinator: studentsunion.representation@ bcu.ac.uk
