Course Reps

Course Reps are student reps who look make sure that studying at the University is as easy it can be. From making sure there's enough time between your deadlines to helping to shape the content on modules.


Students mentors are there to help new students  get the best out of University. They offer one-to-one meetings with students to make sure you feel at home here in Essex.
