Gemma GrattonHello! I’m Gemma, I’m in Junior Honours studying French and English Language, and spent last year working as a language assistant in France.

I believe I am well-suited to the role of SMLC representative. I have experience and knowledge of the school, and have acted as class rep for my language group. I am currently an ambassador for the language assistantship programme, and have organised several successful events to provide support for Level 2 students currently applying for the assistantship. Additionally, I was an SRC Freshers’ Helper this year, and I am also part of the publicity team and RAG committee, all of which have given me valuable insight into the work of the SRC and the support it provides.

If elected, I will:

  • Continue to provide more pre-year abroad support to Level 2 students, and extend current events to those hoping to study abroad or do a work placement
  • Try to provide more support for post-year/semester abroad students coming back to Glasgow to help re-integrate into university life
  • Aim to improve communication between the SMLC departments and their students
  • Meet regularly with class reps to discuss any issues
  • Be an active and approachable point of contact for SMLC students
