Despite having to cancel the first ever Rep Awards in March thanks to Covid-19, we still wanted to recognise the achievements and hard work of our Student Reps at the University of Birmingham.
Reps do an incredible job of voicing student feedback and collaborating with students and staff to represent students’ academic interests, and we want to say a huge CONGRATULATIONS and thank you to every single Rep who has dedicated their time to improving the student experience.

Celia Greenway, the University’s Director of Student Engagement:
“Being a rep for your peers is hugely important. It creates positive change and your actions leave a lasting legacy. You are volunteering to make that difference to your friends, your cohort and for future students. Hopefully, even virtually, you can sense our pride in your achievements!”
A huge congratulations to all of our winners and all of those nominated, and a big thank you for all members of the Rep community for their hard work this year.
