Hello! I’m Nicola McGuire running as a candidate for the School of Psychology Representative. I am currently in my third year studying for my single honours degree in psychology. I hope to continue the work I have undertaken for two years as class representative by extending my duties further through the SRC, enabling myself to represent a wide body of psychology students from all years. I have acquired the skills necessary to do this through my previous experience in meetings with staff which have required me to address student issues and take on board staff comments, ensuring I will be able to work as part of a team to improve processes.
Particularly I’m interested in promoting SRC presence within psychology, which has been increasing with our number of teaching award nominations made this year. I believe for this to succeed the ability of the SRC to provide change within the School of Psychology needs to be more widely advertised to students. With the use of social media and a presence among students at social events and throughout the year that I would deliver as a School Representative this is a process that can be made real.
