A Rep Forum is a large meeting led by De Montfort Students' Union (DSU) consisting of Course Reps and School Rep Coordinators (SRCs) at De Montfort University (DMU). Here, issues are debated which are relevant to your academic experience, and also gives you the chance to raise issues to the Deputy President Education who can then go and lobby to make those changes on your behalf. The issues that many students raise will become a priority for the DP Education to lobby on during the next term.
Newly-elected Course Reps will also have the chance to learn a bit more about their new role and how they can represent the academic interests of their course mates over the next 12 months.
There are also questions asked of you to help the students' union gain data on the current set of issues within your faculty or we know as a union may appear in the near future. The data gathered from these Rep Forums also feeds into a report the students' union presents at the end of the academic year which highlights the main issues students are concerned about in regards to their academic experience and recommends the university take certain steps to improve this.
