The 'Rep of the Month' Award recognises Course Reps who have gone above and beyond in their role. Students, staff and Reps themselves are welcome to nominate any Rep they feel is working hard to represent their Course or Department well, and ultimately to improve the student experience at Sheffield Hallam.
Winners of 'Rep of the Month' receive a small prize (which may vary this year as regulations change!). We also interview all of our winners, to see how they have found the role so far - see below to read about previous winners.

Level 7 Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (Health Visitor)
Why did you decide to become a Course Rep?
"I wanted to become a course rep because am an advocate for equality and I also like to help people."
What's a positive difference you've made as a Course Rep?
"It’s nice to know that people feel that they can talk to me and that I have helped my course mates."
Level 5 Cyber Security with Forensics
“I decided I wanted to be a Course Rep because I wanted the opportunity to help the other students around me enjoy their time in university and on their course. Having the chance to make a course more enjoyable for not only the current students but the students to come is an amazing feeling.”
What’s a positive difference you’ve made as a Course Rep?
“One positive difference I have made was being able to have a discussion in one of our Course Rep meetings with one of my module leaders where we discussed what students felt was lacking and what could be improved. It was nice to see that by that next day they had already taken some of that feedback and put it into use. From there I heard a lot better things about their module and about them as a person. I think it really changed how people felt about the module and what it had to offer to them.”
