Undergraduate Course Rep

Everyone on your Course

... like who can vote for you?

...check the next slide!

You are on a course so awesome (and small), that you get to share a Course Rep with other levels.

Here's how it works:
from either level, voted by students on levels 0 & 1
If you you're not an UG student on any of the courses listed below, you can skip to the next slide!
Let's start with the basics...
... like how does this work?
When to promote yourself?
As a candidate, you need to make sure students who can vote for you (those in the previous slides) know and remember to vote for you.

Voting closes on 21st October at 4pm
How to vote?
The whole voting happens ONLINE, so not during lectures or in secret meetings. All anyone needs to vote is the following address:

Now to the real stuff...
... like how to campaign?
The best place for you to campaign is where your voters are, so we suggest the following options:

Lecture shout outs
Ask the staff (especially the lecturer!) if you could have a moment at the beginning or end of a lecture to let people know who you are and why they should vote for you

Social media
Do you have a Facebook group for your course? As a Department Rep candidate, could you get added to the course groups, or ask your friends to give a shout out in their groups? Twitter is still used as well!
Social situations
Spare time? Spending an afternoon with fellow students? Let them know they should vote for you, in real life!
Let's start with the basics...
... like what or who are Student Reps?
If you are a bit unsure of the different Rep roles and who's who, head to:

to refresh your knowledge.

Now to the real stuff...
... like what you should NOT do?
As a Student Rep candidate, no real life advice here*

If you have any other brilliant ideas, let us know & go ahead!
*If you do need some, the Advice & Representation Centre is the place to go

Examples of unfair campaigning includes and is not limited to:

• Destroying, defacing or removing other candidates publicity
• Campaigning in the computer rooms or in the library/ Bannerman centre, as every computer is technically a ballot station.
Also, you cannot ask anyone to login and vote on said personal electronic devices.
• Making comments which are deemed negative or abusive against another candidate or member of a campaign team.
• Using your current position of authority or power to access information (including communications routes) which are not freely available to other candidates.
• Providing gifts, freebies or preferential access to events or activities (or any other action which may be interpreted as bribery)
• Actions which may be perceived as bullying or intimidating any other candidate, campaigner or student
• Using Union hosted sites or Social Media to promote an election candidate.
• Spamming or Harassing voters through messaging, email and social media.

You are campaigning locally, but there are still some rules in place to ensure fair campaigning
