What is a Research Rep?
A Research Rep is someone who represents the views of their peers from their Research Centres. But why should you
be one? Being a Research Rep can be a highly rewarding experience during your PGR journey; you can bring about
positive change to your Research Centre, build on the existing employability skills you'll be gaining and truly
shape the student experience for PGRs, and so much more!
