Falmouth Course Rep

 

Purpose

The Course Reps are vital in making sure the student voice is heard at every level of the University decision making process! Elected by students, Reps work in partnership with the Sudents' Union, the University and the students they represent to make sure the University environment is constantly evolving and shaping in response to your feedback.

The Students’ Union (SU) Course Representatives are the foundation of student representation, promoting a partnership between students, academic staff and SU. Assuming the role of market researcher within their cohorts, they ensure the student experience of their peers is authentically represented throughout the course of their studies.
