I was a class rep last year for the MLitt in Medieval History. Postgraduate students face a unique set of challenges, and I want to work with fellow students, the SRC and the university to address some of these challenges.
Mental health and welfare – Postgraduate study can be an isolating and stressful time. I will work with the Mental Health Officer (and other welfare officers) to address this.
Information – I want to improve the information given to students in the transition between undergraduate and postgraduate study, particularly in terms of how to handle that transition and what financial support is available.
Engagement – One of the highlights of my undergraduate degree was my involvement in clubs and societies. Fewer postgraduates experience this side of university life and I want to work with the Clubs and Societies Officer to encourage societies to attract and retain postgrad members.
