Hi, my name is Abdulwahab

I’m studying at the school of medicine.
I’m a charismatic individual that aspires to bring about positive change. I have been working with the SRC on numerous of occasions orchestrating charitable events, promoting multiculturalism and diversity.

Over the past couple of years I have come to appreciate the significance of how, now more than ever with the pressure of the economy, the effectiveness of NHS has come into question.
Is it at the brink of collapsing? Are our jobs secured? Privitisation of NHS?
That is the question on everyone’s mind.

It is vital we have correct representation on the council to ensure our interests and investments are adequately looked after.
With an independent Scotland becoming an increasing possibility, there is uncertainty amongst students about the prospects of their degree.

It is important to have an individual like myself who is well informed about the current climate and the risk we are potentially facing.

I firmly believe when in office:

  • I will effectively represent MVLS student body across the university.
  • Ensure our educational establishment is looking after our future.
  • Orchestrating regular sessions to ensure your views are brought forward to the board of MVLS.

Anna Vincett

Hi I’m Anna, a fourth year Microbiology student.

I’m running for the position of Undergraduate MVLS Convenor. The College of Medicine, Veterinary and Life Sciences at Glasgow Univeristy has an excellent reputation, world class research facilities and a fantastic network of students, and we deserve to be thoughtfully represented.

In accordance with the fundamental principles of a student voice, it is vital that MVLS students feel their concerns are being put forward and properly addressed;
If elected, I will hold frequent meetings with all school and class representatives so we can work together to address the everyday issues and concerns of MVLS students. I’m very friendly and approachable and I’d like to bring about the changes in the college you would like to see.

Let’s leave here with more than a degree; there are some incredible events and projects provided by the science-based societies and I will also do more to promote and encourage student involvement in these clubs.

Like many budding university romances, my own relationship with the SRC blossumed during Freshers’ Week, where I was a freshers’ helper. The SRC is an invaluable orginisation and it would be a privilege to be a part of the council.

Douglas Borland

Hi I’m Douglas and I’m a 4th year anatomy student. I’ve been a class rep for three years now and currently train class reps for the SRC. I was a third year representative on the Anatomy Society last year too. I regularly attend School of Life Science Education Committees where I’ve provided feedback gathered on certain issues, such as the closure of the Millport research base. If elected I will aim to:

Life Sciences:

  • Try to allow more guidance on project work and allocations, and monitor the effects of the biomolecular summer projects.
  • Ensure animal biologists still have appropriate field work provision.

Nursing:
Keep an eye on the plans for course mergers and sharing.
Medical School:
Campaign against any further plans to shorten library opening hours.
Veterinary School:
Provide better channels for communication between the SRC and the vet school.
Across all Schools, I intend to strengthen the links between the SRC, staff, and students, and represent students to the best of my ability. I’d love the opportunity to represent you!
