Student Reps

Student Reps and Postgraduate Research (PGR) Reps are current students and researchers at Birmingham, who work to collect and act on your feedback. They represent your academic interests to the University, and work both with the Guild and the University to improve your academic experience.

What DoReps Do?

Rep System

  • Students approach their relevant rep with any issues or concerns
  • Reps take this feedback to the relevant forum (i.e. The Student Support Forum)
  • Reps and staff come together to form ideas on how this problem or piece of feedback can be acted upon and resolved.
  • Once agreed by relevant parties, reps can go back to the student with their feedback/recommendations which supports student with their query.
 

It is important to note that information can flow both ways, and information from wider committees, such as Senate, may be fed back through College/School committees and Student Staff Forums.
