We listen to you and place great importance in your experience at UCSD. We give you the opportunity to voice your opinions and feedback so that you can contribute to the ongoing development of our courses and your programme of study.

The student voice is incredibly valuable, forming part of a community that promotes excellence. We encourage every university student to be actively involved in our student body, and provide a range of activities so that you can have your say.

You will have the opportunity to join the University Student Committee as an elected course representative. Course representatives meet throughout the academic year to discuss important issues and share good practice, to help students develop professionally.

As a course representative, you’ll also benefit from a number of enrichment events arranged by organisations such as the National Union of Students (NUS). You’re automatically a part of the Plymouth University Students’ Union (UPSU) where you can benefit from the range of support and social activities that come with being a Plymouth University student.
