Hey, I’m Jonny your Education Officer for 2018-2019. Essentially, I’m the main academic representative for students to improve your learning experience!
I sit on high governing University meetings to provide a strong voice for students and address concerns. The majority of concerns raised come from student led feedback, provided by our fantastic network of over 1000 course and school reps!
My advice is to make sure you’re aware of who your course rep is, they can make a huge difference to how your course is run through Student-Staff Committee’s, where they’re given the amazing opportunity to have the student voice heard.
But it’s not all Education! I’m also in charge of running the Student Council, which gives you the opportunity to say how the Students’ Union is run and what policies we adopt. If you want to make a difference on campus, or just want to keep in the loop with what’s going on then Student Council make sure you come along!
This year I’m aiming to tackle issues with exam timetabling, working hard to make sure that your exam season is as stress free as possible. Other areas I’m passionate about addressing is the affordability of your education, and providing better resources for academic societies.
