My name is Adaeze Christiana Anyaegbunam, PhD, studying Financial Risk Management. I’m a nominee candidate for Postgraduate Taught Convenor because I believe I have got practical experience and spectacular ideas for the year ahead.

Why me?

Throughout my international academic studies in both USA and South Africa, I have held several positions ranging from Vice President of International Student Africa Community in Ohio, USA and House Committee member in-charge of student welfare and infrastructure maintenance, South Africa. With these commitments in the past years, I have worked tirelessly to set exemplary trademarks for student council and my predecessors to live up to. I demonstrated absolute active membership by organizing and planning high profile meetings with the school president to discuss immediate issues affecting students and proffer immediate worthwhile solutions for them. For instance, I have had to organize and hold meetings to rectify exam timetable clashes for postgraduate students during my studies. This is why I believe I can make a crucial impact in this role.
If given the opportunity to represent you:

STUDY FACILITIES: Will work to improve lecture rooms availability for each course MSc taught course. More lecture times flexibility and more dynamics course selection opportunities and process.

I’m Ailsa, and I’m studying the MRes in Human Geography. I was a student here throughout my undergraduate degree, so I know both the city and the university well. Having sat on Council in 2013-2013 as a School Representative, I have a working knowledge of the important role the SRC plays in university life.

I understand that not everyone has had the benefit of spending the past four years here, and are perhaps unsure as to what the SRC actually does! I will therefore work closely with the postgraduate community to engage with the SRC. As postgrads, we face different challenges and have different concerns to the wider student, and there are a lot of international students in our midst whose views I will be sure to seek out.

We’re lucky enough to have a dedicated postgraduate space in the Gilchrist Postgraduate Club, and I intend to promote its use, and to establish a dialogue with my fellow postgrads to work on ideas to develop it further. I am approachable and friendly, and will make myself available for students to communicate with me any concerns or queries they may have.
Vote Ailsa #1 for Postgraduate Taught Convenor!

With just a year at this awesome University, it is easy to feel like a face in the crowd. But it doesn’t have to be so. This is our Alma matter also.

I am Abioye Jumai Adeola, a Postgraduate Taught student studying M Sc in Biotechnology at the School of Life Sciences. I have observed that over the past few elections, the seat of the Postgraduate Taught Convenor has been left cold. This implies that we have been underrepresented.

I understand the haziness a lot of us feel while trying to acclimatize and all you can see is the clock ticking away. I’ve also heard a lot of us talk about the lack of access to required information and opportunities.

If elected as the Postgraduate Taught Convenor, I would work with the Principal Officers, the SRC leadership, the students and everyone needed to ensure that the programme is brought to an academic, social and professional equilibrium. I would also work to ensure proper representation of postgraduate taught students with issues and work towards improved access to opportunities, information and advice both generic and specific to us.

Thank you.

I am an American student from California, currently studying for her Masters in International Finance degree (MFin). My current involvements are: Student Class Representative (MFin rep), Postgraduate Business Club Treasurer/Finance Officer, European Alliance for Human Rights in N.K (EAHRNK).

Currently there has been an influx of postgraduate students from abroad, studying here in Glasgow. Due to this, our postgraduate community is a fairly populous one and the international scope of the students make keen on University involvement. Our school has an evolving outlook on the future of Taught Postgraduates, examples being Gilchrist and PGT library study area. But I would like to drive even more motivation towards focusing a good chunk on clubs & societies specifically tailored for the multiplying Postgraduate community.

Coming from a wide range of backgrounds in Humanities combined with Business will allow me to effectively voice the blend of various PGT colleges within the entire community. Secondly, I propose a better mode of communicating where concerns from the students are actually recognised and action for immediate improvement will take place. As PGT Convenor, I will integrate myself proactively as a good representation of my fellow classmates and a proper reflection on the University’s Postgraduate community.
