Hey! I’m Dominyka Bacanskaite and I’m currently finishing my first year of psychology, a great year during which university has already given me so much! Yet I want to make it a mutual relationship, and not only take but make a positive impact as well. Back at school I was actively involved in the community – I was writing for the newspaper, was a member of the student parliament and of the art club. I also volunteered in a disabled children association. After coming here, I’d decided to take some time off such things and get used to living in Glasgow. Now I know better than ever that I’m not the kind of person to sit still!

I believe the SRC to be exactly the place where I can work to make things better than they already are. It’s our voice, and I’m eager to become a part of it, strengthen the relationship between the School and its students, and represent our views and opinions about the courses on a higher level. This university is already the best place to study psychology in Scotland, but there’s always room for improvement, so why not aim for perfection?

Eugene Zilberter

My name is Eugene Zilberter and I am a candidate for the School of Psychology Representative position. I am currently representing my class as Class Representative for a second consecutive year, which ensures that I have the know-how to engage students and staff where necessary and monitor issues relevant to program at any level. I’m 26 years young, born in Russia yet raised in the USA, Germany and Sweden, and have studied exclusively in international schools. I have previous University experience studying Psychology and Sports & Exercise Psychology at Stockholms University. This, together with my multinational background, enables me to comfortably navigate in a multicultural environment and be well aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the student experience at Glasgow University.

I believe it is extremely important for students to monitor the progress of our education, and that it is our responsibility to speak up and suggest change wherever necessary. I am passionate in my desire to help make a difference for all Psychology students, and if elected, I promise to promote active communication between students, staff and the SRC, in order to ensure that the interests of all students are well represented.
