Represent Fellow Students On Your Course: Become A Rep

All Goldsmiths students play an important part in the academic community, and meaningful participation in academic life includes having a say and being heard on every issue that affects you.

We're currently recruiting for Programme Reps across every cohort, and postgraduate Department Reps and Accessibility and Inclusion Reps in some departments.

Your role will be to represent the student voice on different levels, helping to improve the educational experience of everyone at Goldsmiths. You'll also be able to develop a range of skills, including research, organisation and presentation skills, which can be brought into cultural and creative work, further academic pursuits, or activism and advocacy in the future.

Some roles are voluntary, whilst others recieve a bursary for the research and representation work you undertake over the academic year.

 

Programme Reps

Every course has a student selected to represent the interests of the students on that course. You'll work as part of a team of Reps in your department to improve the experience of everyone on your course, collating and delivering feedback and attending termly forums and meetings.
