Academic Representation

The SU's Academic Representation system ensures that students have a say on their educational experience here at Warwick.  The Students’ Union supports student reps and University staff in order to establish an effective partnership with the power to make change. Our aim is to ensure that the student voice is heard, discussed and acted upon.

Course Reps are elected in the Autumn Election period for 1st Year Students, Postgraduates, and vacant roles in continuing years. Continuing Years elect their Course Reps in the Summer Election Period. Elections for WBS Course Reps are currently on MyWBS. You can nominate yourself to represent your Course on the Elections page. Your Course & Year will automatically be shown when you go to nominate yourself. You can add a photo and a description on why you should be elected in the Manifesto section.

Once Course Reps are elected, they will get training through the Students’ Union to help them in their role and how to use the resources available. You will get a link to self-enrol to the course on Moodle the week after you are elected and the live sessions will take place in the following weeks. The first SSLC will take place from Week 5 of Term 1.

A number of students are elected as Course Reps to represent you. Once you give your feedback to your Course Rep, they then discuss this with the University at a Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC). This can lead to constructive changes to your course, such as receiving specific learning resources, improvements to timetabling, or continuing something on the course that you enjoy!

Our Rep system encourages all channels of feedback and communication to be supportive and accessible to all, allowing you to have the best student experience possible.
