What does a Class Representative do?
Class Representatives provide the first point of contact for other students in their class. They are at hand to resolve basic problems and offer support and guidance.
Class reps are, most importantly, the ears and voice of the students at Victoria. They provide an important link between students, academic staff and the University Academic Office.
Class reps provide an important point of consultation when changes need to be made or are being proposed. More specifically, they work within Victoria’s academic representation structures to provide constructive feedback to academic staff and student representatives in Faculty and University committees regarding the quality of teaching and assessment, course content and facilities.
It's important to VUWSA that all class reps are adequately supported in their roles. The following resources aim to do that, so please make use of them. If you have any questions please contact Student Representation Coordinator.

Class Representatives are that invaluable link between students, academic staff, the University Academic Office and VUWSA.
All courses elect a class representative who acts as a link between VUWSA, VUW and students.
International research has shown that class reps are often seen by their fellow students as the most effective form of student representation. They are elected by students by the third week of classes every trimester.
