Hugh RobertsI’m Hugh, an American Studies MLitt student, and I’m hoping to be able to fill the void in postgraduate representation that we’re currently stuck with at the University. Having done my Undergraduate degree here as well, I’ve got a wealth of experience which I believe makes me the ideal candidate for the role. I already work in the office and Welcome Point at the SRC and, on top of that, I sat on SRC Council last year as the School of Humanities Representative. Within this role, I sat on University Senate and worked to improve the provision of careers advice for students within the School of Humanities.
This year, I’d like to work towards ensuring that postgraduates in the College are properly provided for within the plans for the new campus; we’re already facing issues whereby research students are being relocated into inadequate offices, and I want to make sure that, going forward, all research students are able to study in a suitable environment. Postgraduates have been lacking in adequate representation here for a long time, and I’d like to help develop the support networks that already exist, and improve the links between the SRC and the postgraduate community.
