Your Student Representation
What can we do together?
At the University of Birmingham: Dubai, you are part of an academic community between teaching staff and students.
The Student Representation System, a partnership between the University and the Students’ Association, exist to make sure that your options and feedback on teaching and learning are heard.
Student Reps are elected on every programme or course of study to voice your opinion and to work positively with staff to make the academic community on campus the best it can be.
Each elected Student Rep may approach their role differently, but they all work to:
- Gather student opinions and present them objectively to University staff.
- Provide constructive feedback to University staff and work in conjunction with them to reach practical solutions that work for everybody.
- Keep students informed about the University’s response to their feedback and solutions to any issues raised.
As an elected Student Rep, you’ll meet regularly with academic staff in Dubai to represent the voice of students and to develop positive solutions to improve teaching and learning on campus. You’ll develop communication, leadership, planning and negotiation skills which will help in your professional life, all whilst contributing to your campus community.
