Coventry University Students' Union CU London runs our successful Rep System working closely with the University to ensure that your voice is heard at various levels around the campus on a variety of topics. There are two aspects to the representation system our course reps and service reps. Each has a specific function to play in providing the student feedback.
What are Course Reps?
CUSU Course Reps and Senior Course Reps work in collaboration with CU London staff to improve the quality of every module. The Student Voice Forum is a great place to work with academics to create solutions for the problems on your course, as well as to give positive feedback and spread good practice!
What are Service Reps?
The Service Representation system is in place to provide a forum for students to discuss feedback on university services. We recruit Service Reps each year who are students just like you to gather student feedback on services such as the Library, IT and Campus Improvement. They work closely with the relevant members of staff and attend Service Forums.

What are Senior Course Reps?
Two senior course reps are recruited per department group. They take on one of two roles within the Student Voice Forum system. One senior course rep chairs the Student Voice Forum meetings whilst the other acts as a minute taker. This is a paid role.
Senior Course Rep Applications are currently closed at Coventry University London.
