Hi, I’m Andrew! I’m a fourth year senior honours Physics with Astrophysics student, and I would love to represent our school at the SRC. From my experience as a Freshers’ Helper and a team leader, I understand and appreciate how important the SRC is for every student at this university. As I also do courses from both Physics and Astronomy as part of my degree, I have experience of being an undergraduate for both departments and so I feel that I am well-equipped to represent this school.
I am very approachable, and I would love to help increase communication between staff and students with regards to the student experience. I hope this will allow people with any issues or problems to come to me or to liaise through their class reps. My main aims for this year are:
• Meet regularly with class reps and provide support if they have any issues to discuss.
• Be an active and approachable point of contact for students within the School of Physics and Astronomy.
• Address and express the views and issues raised by the students within the school and taking them to the SRC. For example: exam timetabling and issues with lecturers etc.
I am a third year theoretical physics student with a wide variety of interests including art, drama, and languages. I am passionate about student politics and would be honoured to represent the School of Physics and Astronomy.
For the past two years I have been the representative for my physics class. This experience has allowed me to form good professional relationships with staff members, and also to develop diplomatic communication skills which are essential when collaborating with both staff and students or attending meetings. In addition to this I have experience in corresponding with the unions, having held the position of secretary on a society committee for over a year.
As representative, I would work in close collaboration with the students to ensure that all of your concerns are put forward to staff or the SRC. I would also push for clearer communication between the SRC, staff, and students so that everyone is more aware of campus events. Most importantly, I am interested in hearing what you have to say so that I can campaign to have your ideas implemented.
Vote for me so that we can improve everyone’s university experience together.
Hello! I’m Sam Kershaw, I’m currently in my Third year of Physics and I am running for the position of School Rep for Physics and Astronomy. I have previously been involved in several representative positions stretching as far back as Secondary School.
My main aim in this position is of course to represent you as a school, not all of you may know we are not currently represented at the council and I couldn’t sit idly by and allow this to go on. I will ensure that all concerns passed through your class reps are acted upon accordingly. I also wish to ensure communication between students and the university is as clear and accessible as possible.
I intend to explore the possibility of providing physics and astronomy students with transport out to astronomy labs as I know this point has been raised. Given the current political situation I would work to ensure, as far as my position allows, that the funding and opportunities offered by the university to aid and benefit the students of the Physics and Astronomy department remain in place.
So let’s all vote and get our voices heard in the SRC Council once again.
