School Rep PhotoHello
My name is Josh, I am a 3rd year Earth Science student. Should you elect me as school representative my aims would be:
• To improve the school’s involvement in University issues related to geosciences
• Make effective changes to improve student satisfaction within the school
I would achieve these goals by:
1. Supporting student led initiatives in environmental issues
As Geographers and Earth Scientists we have a solid academic understanding of environmental and climate issues. I believe this is an undervalued resource, and we are capable of assisting the University in becoming a leader in environmental development.
2. Making marking more transparent
I believe a few, simple changes would allow for greater transparency in the marking process. I would like to see staff notify students with how much they have marked and how likely/unlikely it is marking deadlines will be met.
3. Constantly liaising with class representatives from across year groups and subjects.
This would allow me to ensure class concerns are effectively dealt with at honours and non-honours levels.
Whilst at university, I have studied both Geography and Earth Sciences. If elected I will work with students from both subjects to ensure both are happy and fairly represented.
