What is The Rep Election?

The Students' Union is the recognised representative body for all ARU students and at this time of year we run The Rep Election to elect Course Reps, PGR Reps and to fill the vacant spaces for Campaign and Faculty Reps in our Executive Committee. 

Course Reps work on behalf of students in their course & year to gather feedback, take it to staff and help make positive changes to the student experience.

PGR Reps work on behalf of Post Graduate Reseachers in their faculty in the same way.

Campaign and Faculty Reps work with the Executive Committee, meeting once a month and campaigning on behalf of the student in their constituency. The roles available are: 

  • HEMS Faculty Rep (Cambridge)
  • Trans Students' Rep (Chelmsford)
  • BME Students' Rep (Chelmsford)
  • Disabled Students' Rep (Cambridge)
  • Disabled Students' Rep (Chelmsford)
  • LGBT+ Students' Rep (Chelmsford)

The students voted in during the Rep Election  are trained by the SU and have dedicated members of staff to support them. 

If you want more information about any of these roles please find us in Peter Taylor House or on the first floor of Tindal in Chelmsford or contact
