The SRC’s #LecRec campaign is relaunching for Semester 2. This is a priority campaign that with the help of students is encouraging more lecturers to opt in to our current lecture recording policy if staff lecture in a room with lecture recording capability. We are aiming to move towards a policy where all lectures are recorded for all UofG students to make learning more accessible for our 27,000 students.
Hellooo everyone! Happy New Year and welcome back from hibernation. The last few months have gone by super quickly, but here’s some of the work I’ve been doing last term and what I have upcoming for the future:
Please be aware that the Welcome Point and SRC Reception will be closed for training from 9am-1pm on Friday 5th January. The offices will then be open from 1pm-4pm. Apologies for any inconvenience.
The Students' Representative Council will be closing at 1pm on Friday 15th December for the Christmas break. Please note that all printing and binding services will be unavailable over the winter break.
Hey friends, if you are reading this, it means you’ve reached peak procrastination, good job. While you're having a break from your upcoming deadlines, let me tell you about some of my work this semester, so when people ask, “What does the SRC actually do?” you know that we have secured millions of pounds already this year to be invested in the student experience.
Since the launch of our #lecrec myself and academic representatives within the SRC have been making lots of progress to make lecture recording more widespread across the university. As we approach the festive break I thought it would be good to give you a quick update on the progress we’ve made so far
Myself along with 15 other student body Presidents in Scotland, showing our concerns about the Higher Education sector being sidelined so far in Brexit discussions, have written a letter to the British Prime Minister Theresa May outlining these concerns and what we would like to see prioritised. You can read this letter below.
Anyone signing up for a new tenancy with a private landlord from today (1/12/17) onwards should be aware that there is a new system in force. These rules only apply to new tenancies starting on or after 1/12/17 - existing tenancies are not affected. Existing tenancies remain valid until they end. In addition, large private student housing providers (e.g., Unite, Fresh, Downing Students etc) are exempt from the new rules.
