As some postgraduate courses at the Institute of Education start before Fresher’s Week, we have created their
own Course Rep elections. The courses this election applies to are: School Direct (Primary and Secondary) and
all PGCE programmes. For all other courses and information on the Postgraduate School Rep role, visit the Postgraduate Rep Elections page.
Postgraduate Course Reps represent postgraduate students’ views within their course on matters concerning
teaching and learning as well as the wider student experience. They work in partnership with both students and
academic staff and work together to create changes that benefit postgraduate students.
Over 200 Postgraduate Course Rep positions are available each Autumn to represent student views at University
meetings. Postgraduate Course Reps gather student feedback highlighting any positives or negatives relating to
their course and bring it to the attention of university staff. Working in partnership with the University,
Reps create positive change within their course to benefit both current and future students.
Becoming a Postgraduate Course Rep is a great way to meet people, develop new skills and to make a real
difference during your time here at Reading!
