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, exists to make sure that your opinions 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:
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.
The Student Rep Handbook has all the information you need to get you started. It will take you through your role, the system, as well as the support and development opportunities available to you so that you can be a great Student Rep.
The Student Forum is the primary representative body of the students at the Dubai Campus and is part of the Students’ Association in Dubai. It exists to promote activities on campus and to support social and academic unity among all students, no matter their background or culture.
Each academic year, 6 Student Leaders will be elected by students to form the Student Forum. Student Leaders ensure that the opinions of students are heard at the highest levels of the campus and meet regularly with the Director of Campus operations.
Becoming a Student Leader is an exciting opportunity to develop your leadership skills, whilst representing the voice of all Dubai campus students. You will have a chance to be elected to Student Forum every year, and as a Student Leader will be contributing to your campus community, whilst developing communicative, planning and negotiation skills which will be useful in your professional life.
