How do Reps act upon my feedback?
Your Representatives have a responsibility to listen to your feedback and then present the information at various meetings throughout the University. This will go to your Course Leaders, Lecturers, Faculty Dean, all the way up to the Vice Chancellor, and actions will be taken to improve your student experience.

Becoming a Rep is a great way to work with other students and staff at all levels of the University to make positive change.
At Anglia Ruskin University, over 600 of our students volunteer their time to be a Rep. They benefit from experience and opportunities which help to develop key employability skills including communication, negotiation, problem solving and strategic thinking. All positions are part-time and voluntary.
