HeadshotHi there, I’m Sarah, a second year Geography and Sociology student and I would love to be your next Geographical and Earth Sciences School Rep!

Over the past two years, I have gained a multitude of experience that has prepared me for this role. During first and second year, I have held a Tutorial Class Representative position for Geography. In addition, I’m currently serving as the Treasurer of Oxfam, on the Committee of Amnesty International, and working with the SRC on a project to reduce sexual harassment on campus. I also work in the International Office as a Student Ambassador.

Through these roles I have learned how to ensure each voice of those I represent is heard, and effectively work with multi-body organisations, including the SRC.

As your representative, I would organise and foster peer to peer study groups to promote effective learning and greater student interaction. I would also seek better communication between class reps, myself, and the school’s staff to guarantee student satisfaction within their courses.

If elected, I will represent the opinions of each of you in the School by acting to the best of my abilities on the SRC Council. Thank you for your consideration!

I’m Hannah, a 2nd year Geography student, and it would be an honour to become your School Representative for Geographical and Earth Sciences. Born and bred in Glasgow, I’m passionate about education, representation and working together to achieve decisive change. We are fortunate to be part of an already fantastic school, but I believe there are improvements that can be made to further enhance the experience of GES students.

Over the past year, I’ve been lucky enough to be an SRC Fresher’s helper and a class representative. This has helped me gain better insight into our wonderful organisation and I would love to increase my involvement.

Serving on committees and public speaking has always been a big part of my life and I’m dedicated to listening to others and doing my upmost to see that any issues are tackled effectively.

If elected, I would aim to:

  • Deal with the issue of inadequate lecture theatre space for specific year groups
  • Tackle staff-student communication issues and hold regular drop in sessions for students to voice their concerns
  • Work with academic staff to improve the level of exam feedback
  • Establish cohesive support networks for students online

Thank you!
