PG Convenor Arts


Fiona Paterson

Hi, I’m Fiona, and I’d like to be your Postgraduate Arts Convenor.

A Scottish Lit Masters student with 2 years of SRC involvement under my belt, I have not just the knowledge of how things work but also fresh ideas and endless enthusiasm. I plan to focus my initial efforts on:

  1. COMMUNITY – the Gilchrist is a great space which I’ll ensure is used to its full potential throughout the entire year, working alongside clubs and socs to build a community where we all feel welcome (because postgrad doesn’t mean all work and no play!)
  2. COMMUNICATION – I want to open up channels of communication early on to make sure your important issues are heard by the people who can help! To do this, I’ll build and maintain strong relationships with both staff and my fellow SRC representatives.
  3. CAREERS – let’s face it, lots of us are here because we’re not sure what to do next; I’d work with staff and the Careers Service to help make your options as Arts students known!

I’m approachable and committed, with the knowhow to get things done. If elected, I promise to work tirelessly to represent you!
