A university is nothing without its students. That’s why student feedback is so important to UWTSD. With 16,000 students spread across Wales and England, a student representative structure helps ensure that students views are heard, wherever you are based.
Integral to this structure are Student Voice Representatives (SVRs), who work in partnership with senior staff at the University to create solutions and make your voices heard. This is the next step up from a Course Rep, who focuses on issues specific to an individual course of study. Whereas Student Voice Reps represent all students within the same Institute at a campus.
The role of Student Voice Rep involves working with Course Reps and the Students’ Union Officers to ensure that students’ views on their academic experience are heard and acted on by the University. This includes proactively communicating with students and attending meetings with senior University staff. It is a fantastic opportunity to make a difference and leave a legacy beyond your time as a student at UWTSD.
Given how much change there has been to the delivery of teaching and learning over the last year at UWTSD, such as wide-scale online teaching or the introduction of Graduate Attribute Modules, it has never been so essential for the student voice to be at the decision-making table. Now is your opportunity to be that voice by becoming a Student Voice Rep!
So, could you be a voice for students as Student Voice Rep? Applications are open now until 9am, 5 July 2021.
