Are you a Programme Rep? Standing for election could be your next step.

So far this year, you have used your role as Programme Representative to improve the conditions on your Programmes and the experience at City University London. Being a Programme Rep means you have demonstrated the desire to make important changes, represent students and respond to important feedback. These skills are directly transferable to an officer role. Nominating yourself could be the next important step in your development!

Through your efforts as Programme Representatives, you have not only shown your ability to listen to, respond to and act on feedback; you have also gained valuable knowledge on the issues students care about and the changes they want to see made. This insight and knowledge is an important tool for officers through their campaigns and work. You have also shown your time management skills, effective communication and responsibility by being a Programme Representative.
