Academic Representation


Every student at the University of Greenwich has come here to study, so everyone is invested in the quality of their studying experience.

 

Our Academic Reps, including Programme Reps and Faculty Officers are here to ensure that your academic interests are represented to the University and Students’ Union.

You too can influence the University, by talking to your Programme Rep, engaging with School Forums or writing to your Module Tutor or Head of school about issues on your course. 

For help and support, get in touch with us at reps@gre.ac.uk.

 

 

Programme Reps

 

Programme Reps are the voice of students studying on their programme (course), there are two Reps elected per programme per year of study to represent the programme’s students each year. These elections take place during introductory lectures in the first few weeks of the Academic year. If you’re interested in becoming a Programme Rep for this year then why not have a look at the Programme Rep Handbook, or get in touch with the Academic Representation Team.

If you've already been elected as a Programme Rep and want to ensure you are part of our Programme Rep database and receive correspondence related to your role as a Programme Rep then please ensure you fill out this form.
