Student Representatives (MBChB Programme)

Course Representatives are nominated by students and regularly meet and work with School staff to represent and help implement student ideas and feedback.

Course Reps are the link between students across the University and the Guild Officers working with staff and students to improve the learning experience – identifying and discussing issues which affect their course and helping to come up with solutions. Course Reps on the MBChB programme also attend the Staff Student Liaison Committee (SSLC) (link).

Elections are organised through the Guild of Students and take place following the submission of a short manifesto from each candidate. The MBChB Programme elects two student representatives from each year cohort, and one Graduate Entry Programme Rep, each year.
