PGR Reps

PGR reps create the link between students across the University and the Guild Officers, working with staff, colleagues and fellow students to improve the student research experience – identifying and discussing issues that may arise.

  • Attend the training provided by the Guild of Students. This will give you a chance to develop your ideas on collecting student feedback, and you’ll find out about all the support and advice we can offer you.
  • Actively find out the issues affecting students.
  • Attend the relevant PGR Committee and discuss any issues identified

Attend any other relevant committees in your Faculty or School. This will depend on your Faculty but some reps will be asked to sit on some school and Faculty committees to ensure that the student voice is represented higher up the structure.

  • Experience of work in the Higher Education sector
  • Influence university decisions
  • Represent peers
  • Project planning
  • Networking and getting to know members of staff
  • Understanding University structures

Traditionally Course Rep recruitment will take place in October each year.

During this first week of teaching, students are asked if they would like to volunteer as a PGR Rep; there should then be a selection process or an election where the Course Reps for the year are confirmed.

To become a PGR Rep, contact your Student Experience Administrator to put your name forward within the first week of the academic year.

If you have any questions or would like more support contact Kylie Williams.
