Course Reps

 

The Course Rep position is a part time, voluntary role representing students within the same course group and year.

Course Reps are students elected by their coursemates to deliver and discuss feedback with their faculty. This feedback is then used to improve the student experience for all the students they represent.

There is at least one Rep role available per course per year, though this may differ for courses with larger numbers of students, e.g. Nursing or Biomedical Science.

Course Reps attend a meeting once a trimester called a Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) where they discuss students concerns and help to find solutions.

National Conference Delegate

 

The 9 National Conference Delegates (NCDs) attend, represent Anglia Ruskin Students’ Union and vote at the annual National Union of Students (NUS) National Conference, the main policy-making body of the NUS.


It produces policies and position statements on the activities of NUS, of which the Students’ Union is a member, and elects the full-time officers and other representatives to the National Executive Council (NEC). The NEC is the most senior policy-making body outside of National Conference.


At National Conference, students and officers from across Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and England will come together to focus on the priorities and campaigns of NUS for the coming year. As a conference attendee you can expect:
1. Spaces where you can build your communities
2. Meaningful involvement in shaping the next steps of NUS campaigns
3. Chances to grow your own campaigning skills to take action.


If you are planning to run for this position please make sure you will be available to attend, with the likelihood of at least one night away. You will receive training in advance of the conference and the SU will arrange and cover reasonable costs for transport, food and accommodation.


The delegation will be led by the President of Anglia Ruskin Students' Union. There are 9 additional delegate positions available.


The National Conference has a gender-balance requirement and at least half of the delegation must self-define as women. The election will will counted using your student data and the option to self-define as a woman to ensure that we meet this balance.
