What are Course Advocates?
Most courses will have at least one Course Advocate who acts as the first line of student representation within the University. Course Advocates are fundamental in ensuring the student voice is not only heard, but acted on as well! Course Advocates are students who are elected to act as the link between the students on their course and the University. If there are things that students want to see improved on their course, Course Advocates communicate their views to key academic staff, so they can make the changes that students want. Being a Course Advocate is a fantastic opportunity to represent other students and play a key role in improving your course and your subject area.
Why Should I become a Course Advocate?
Any student can put themselves forward to become a Course Advocate. You should consider becoming a Course Advocate if you want to help create positive changes to the student experience at the University of Northampton, are looking to boost your employability/personal development and if you're an outgoing person wanting to broaden your horizons.
