In my short tenure as postgraduate convener in the College of MVLS I have already secured big commitments from the university for postgraduate students in MVLS.

I have:
• Pushed through a review of the credits system by the graduate school,
• Vastly improved communication between all postgraduate students and the SRC via surveymonkey & PG Drop in sessions
• Secured over £600 worth of funding for a PG ceilidh in MVLS to bring the Institutes together which will be held on the 1st of April
• Collaborated with the graduate school to design an online one-stop shop for PGR students that will include course notes, news and an opportunity for intra-college networking.

In addition, I am putting a great deal of emphasis on championing the student experience across MVLS by representing students who endure tough working conditions on placements. Furthermore, my contributions in the Researcher Development Committee are pushing forward PGR perspectives to improve the overall professional development training across the university. These plans mentioned above are in place to improve YOUR experience as a postgraduate student at the University of Glasgow. A vote for Bob is a vote for tangible change at both college and university level.
