What are Student Advocates?

Student Advocates are the prime representation system at The University of Northampton. Collectively, they are responsible for the most amount of student-centered change around the university, and they contribute extensively to keeping our happy campus. If you feel that your course isn't quite living up to your expectations or if you feel that your education is so great that you need to tell others about it, make sure to contact one of your Student Advocates and let them know.

 

All undergraduate and postgraduate 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

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.

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, you are looking to boost your employability and personal development and if you're an outgoing person wanting to broaden your horizons.
