Full-Time MBA/Student Representatives
From DBS Applicant Gateway
Student representatives are very important to both the students and the School. They provide a vital link between the two. They are a means by which the students’ views can be voiced, and they are chosen by students for students – this year we require 4 student representatives for our termly Student-Staff Consultative Committee.
Representatives sit on the Student-Staff Consultative Sub-Committee which meets once per term to discuss issues within the School. This is a formal forum where students’ comments and views are passed on to the School. Representatives should be available to listen to any comments or academic problems students may face, and some will have the chance to sit on the Board of Studies for the School. All reps may attend DSU Academic Senate meetings once per term. This is a general meeting for all course reps, and is the only link they have with other Departments and Durham Students’ Union (DSU). Help and support is provided for reps by DSU, who produce a Course Reps Briefing Pack, and by an Academic Affairs Officer and the full-time DSU Education and Welfare Officer, who both offer help if reps encounter any problems.
Students may also seek advice by visiting the Durham Students' Union webpage:
Reps are elected by the other students on the programme. We appreciate that you need some time to get to know members of your cohort, but we will need to ask for nominations very early in the programme in time for the first meeting of the SSCC. Further information on the selection process will follow.
