As elected representatives of each course and year, they pass on student feedback to those who can make changes. From tiny problems to really big issues, if things could be improved, course reps can represent your views to course leaders. This means students don’t just consume their university experience, they help create it.

To do this, they…

  • Attend training
  • Ensure everyone on the course knows who they are and what they do
  • Keep in contact with the course leader
  • Attend three course board meetings per year
  • Offer suggestions for improvement
  • Communicate outcomes back to students


Fashion students studios were shutting at 5pm everyday when students needed them for longer. The course reps put together a petition of all the students’ names that wanted extended hours and took it to their course board.

The course leader then showed it to the relevant staff that organised a new staff timetable that allowed for later opening hours.

Students were unhappy with the feedback they received on their work.

The course reps ran an open discussion on Facebook asking students what they wanted to see changed. The majority of students wanted more information about what aspects of their work was meeting the marking criteria rather than just negative criticism.

The course reps took this information to their course board. As a result the course leader discussed the issue with staff and they agreed to offer positive feedback before outlining areas of improvement.

Some product design students wanted to know more about career options and skills for the work place.

Through taking this to the course leader and course board meeting, the university arranged for a local professional to come in to talk about their experiences.

Students from interior architecture had a project where they had to work in groups but the studio space was better suited to independent learning.

The course reps discussed this at their course board and found that other years agreed it was a problem.

As a group, they looked at the studio space and rearranged to encourage greater group work.

The graduation ceremony for fashion textiles students fell on the same day as New Designers event – which many decided to attend instead.

Course reps helped arrange an on-campus photo one campus in robes for another day and now the university has checked that graduation doesn’t clash with any key events for the future.

Graphic design students were told their end of year show would no longer be held in London due to budget constraints.

When the course reps went to their course leader it became clear the decision had not been his. So the course reps went to school board, where they could raise their concerns with the head of school and other course leaders.

The course reps took lots of alternatives and evidence as to why a London show was important and they were successful.

What Students Say...

The Union brought back Life Drawing to the Illustration department after it was cancelled. Life drawing was an integral part of our practice so it was greatly appreciated when it returned!

Ewan G, Maidstone

The Union is an extremely effective group that helps students solve problems arising from course or academic areas.

Lee E, Epsom

When concerns and worries about course and university issues were at a distressing tipping point, the Union helped me rationalise and encourage a student-led defence against the problems

Tariq E, Maidstone
