Rep Election 2021

 

Are you a new student wanting to make the most of your University experience?

Or an existing student in a class without a rep?

 

Why not take control of your student experience and become the Class Representative for your class.

You will be supported by your Students' Union team, Vice President and your Course Champion.
 

If you are a Business and Healthcare or Business and Events Management student, you will also have the opportunity to become the Course Champion - representing your entire course. 

 

In simple terms, these roles are designed for two key purposes;

 

1. To ensure ARU London University listen to and act upon any feedback you have as a student

2. To give excellent development opportunities for students within these roles

 

Anyone can stand to be a Class Rep. Once you've nominated yourself, your fellow class will vote for who they would like to represent them - it might just be you running, or there could be a few of you! 

 

Nominations for these positions will take place through your VLE.
