Have you ever wanted to raise an issue or provide feedback on your programme but were unsure how to, or questioned whether it would actually make a difference? We have revised our academic representation system for 2022/23 to support students do exactly this.
For any questions on how you can get involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org
News for 2022/23, RSU has introduced Digital Rep, a survey style tool where you can give online feedback about your programme and academic experience here at Roehampton. Your Programme Rep (see below) will see all the posts about your course, and be able to act on your feedback to bring about change.
You can access Digital Rep at any time, as often as you'd like, here!
School Reps are experienced student leaders appointed to the role by RSU and their university department.
For 2022/23, your School Reps are:
Arts – Giridhar Raghunathan (email@example.com)
Business – Ihjas Aslam Perincherri (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Education – Kieran Galligan (email@example.com)
Humanities & Social Sciences – Marthe Gaardner (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Law – Lily Wells (email@example.com)
Life & Health Sciences – Katherine Birditt (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Psychology – Fleur Watts (email@example.com)
School Reps work with both the RSU and the University to help drive democratic student engagement and support feedback between students and staff.
School Reps can access all resources, inc. training and feedback forms here.
Programme Reps represent students on your programme, giving a voice to the issues that affect you and other students. Their main role is to liaise with and represent the views of students on your programme. They collect feedback and communicate this with both the RSU and the University to encourage change.
Programme Reps will be recruited between 19th September – 10th October this year. Every student is eligible to apply. If this interests you, there will be a Recruitment Form that will be circulated on both the RSU Website (here) and all academic staff members will have access – so speak to them if you are unsure.
What do Programme Reps do?
You will raise issues and feedback in communications with other students, Programme Convenors, your School Rep, and the RSU.
You will also be invited to attend Programme Board meetings once per semester, where academic staff respond to feedback and action decisions to make tangible changes to the student experience.
You will gain a wide range of skills: communication, decision-making, time management, teamwork, and negotiation, and will be able to work closely with both the University and RSU.
Responsibilities of Programme Reps:
Collect feedback from students on your programme using feedback forms and surveys
Attend Programme Board meetings with academic staff
Attend School Rep Forums with other Programme Reps and your School Rep
Share feedback with School Reps and the RSU
Share feedback outcomes with students using our feedback outcomes form, and let students know of any decisions made at Programme Board meetings
Promote participation of surveys like NSS and distribute and collect module evaluation forms
