Clear communication between the SRC, staff and student body is the primary role of the rep and one I would be happy and passionate to assume. My experience in societies on campus, especially as a boardmember of the Dialectic Society and the Isabella Elder Feminist Society, has prepared me to be an active and enthusiastic rep. I’m excited for the opportunity to work with class representatives and staff to give students of Critical Studies the best possible time at university.

My priority as representative would be to help Critical Studies integrate its diverse student body and to provide support for everyone. I would work to extend the amount of information available to students, especially regarding employment opportunities and study abroad. Also, I am committed to campaigning for lecture recording across the school, a practice which has proved successful in numerous other schools at Glasgow. I hope to continue to theQ&A sessions for first and second years to ask questions about honours.

I hope I have your vote!

src photoHello! My name is Fiona and I’m a second year English Literature student. Having been a class representative last year, and attended departmental meetings on behalf of English Literature Level 1, I have already been actively involved in the feedback process.
As your school representative, I will be looking to conduct a review of the way English Literature lectures are accessed, and would conduct a survey to get a clear idea of student support for recorded lectures, before presenting my findings to both the English Literature department and the SRC. I will also be pushing for a fully-functioning Moodle app, with a synchronised timetable and full access to course pages when used on mobile devices. Further, I will seek to gain signatures from the head of every department in the School of Critical Studies to guarantee tablet-friendly Moodle resources to facilitate their use in lectures.
I have also completed a year of English Language, and one of my main concerns would be to conduct a survey of Level 1 in this subject, to ensure that the right balance is being struck between English Literature skills and those looking to complete a degree in English Language.
