The Role of the Research Rep

The research reps are responsible for their faculty research centre or school. They work closely with the Senior Research Representatives to bring feedback forward to the university, either directly or through research student forums.

The Role of the Senior Research Rep

The role of the research representatives is to represent the views and opinions of research students in their faculty or URC (University Research Centre) at Coventry University. The Senior Research Reps sit at faculty level and work closely with a team of Research Reps. CUSU along with the University wants you to have a great research experience. In order for this to happen we need to hear your views. You can get in touch with the research reps via their email addresses.
