The Role

The Activities Officer leads the training and support for all 180+ of our student-ran Societies and alongside the AU Officer, has a shared responsibility over student activities at the Students' Union. In recent years, the role has included the organizing of high profile events here at the Students' Union such as Freshers' Fair, Grad Ball, Summer Jam, NUSU's Festival of Culture as well as helping with the Societies Awards/Pride of Newcastle.

About Me

I did my undergraduate degree in International Business management at London campus. I was heavily involved in representing the student voice through out those three years, as an Student representative and followed by being selected as the student ambassador in 2019 and finally ran for the Activities Officer post. I really hope to make a difference here in Newcastle by making the university experience more fulfilling.

Represent International Students

Increase Employability Opportunities for the students

NUSU Stands in Solidarity with Refugees and Asylum Seekers

We at NUSU are deeply concerned about the devastating situation in Afghanistan and know it is very distressing for many of our students. As a community, we are reaching out to express our support for welcoming refugees and asylum seekers to Newcastle and believe this should be the case across Newcastle and the UK.
