Hi physicists and astronomers (in making)!

I am Tuuli, a 4th year Physics student. I am passionate about education standards and students’ expectations throughout their studies. I want to do my best to make sure reality surpasses expectations and SRC offers an excellent opportunity for that.

I have been a class rep for several courses during the last two years and experienced that it is possible to make a difference. Last year the school intended to implement a major change that would have most directly affected all MSci students going to 4th year. School only saw one alternative to existing situation. After discussions with other students, I put together a letter describing 7 possible alternative options. The major change was postponed and I believe that active response from students had a considerable effect.

My main aims as a school rep:

  • Ensure that all major changes in courses are discussed with students and students’ opinions considered when making a final decisions
  • Meet monthly with all the class reps to discuss any concerns and address them at school/college level in a timely manner
  • Engage all years in active communication to ensure the best degree experience
