Hi, my name is Flynn. I am a PGT student studying an Msc in Data Analytics and this is my fifth year at the University. Postgraduate students make up about 20% of the student population and it is important that we have a strong voice in both the SRC and the wider university; something that is often missing year to year, and that I will provide.
As an undergraduate student, I volunteered my time to help new and prospective students, giving me a solid understanding of the university and its workings. I want to use this experience to push your concerns and to give postgraduates a voice.
If elected I will
• Push for separate postgraduate study and social space in the new campus development plans.
• Provide an avenue for postgraduate students to voice any issues or concerns they have, taking any issue presented me to the highest level.
• Make PGs more aware of current career and social opportunities within the Colleges and in the wider university community.
• Be visible and approachable on campus.
• Act as a signpost for support and services.
I hope that you will give me a vote! Thank you for your time.
My name is Sijia Li, and I am studying in Adam Smith business school. My major is Human Resource Management.
Looking back on my university life, I feel confident as I have learned a lot during these periods. These useful experiences are not constrained to the frequency of activities I attend or the amount of time I spend, but for the number of beneficiaries I provide. Taking an example of my experience when I was in charge of student work, I found that there are fewer positions available to the students who have come from the low-income family background. Even though they are outstanding than others, they still feel unappreciated because they have no voice to express their appeals.
This phenomenon is a gripping pain when I found that some of my closest partners are so helpless. Thus, as a vice chairman of our student union, I provide an equal opportunity to the students no matter what family background they are.
Though the competition is cruel, though I am just a drop in the ocean, I will do my best to avoid this phenomenon happen again, as we all start from the scratch and belong to the same world.
