Hi, I’m Ryan, currently a first year studying history and politics, and I’m hoping to be your next student representative for the School of Humanities. As I have a huge passion for my own Humanities subject I would be an extremely enthusiastic representative, and would fight fiercely to improve student experience in all subjects within the School.
My experience on SRC council this year as First Year Rep means that I am familiar with how the SRC functions and would be able to quickly embrace this new role. As First Year Rep I have worked to increase student participation whenidentifying issues within the university, which I would carry through to my new duties by working closely with all class reps in the school as well as making myself available to any individual student. I will take particular interest in how students feel about assessment within the school, especially in later years. I would also attempt to increase the practice of recording lectures, and make the recordings more accessible.
To increase student support I would look into introducing a student Peer support system within Humanities, which has successfully been done in the Vet school.
I hope I have your vote!
My name is Hannah Todd and I’m a third year History and Sociology undergraduate student. As Humanities School Representative I would have knowledge of both the Arts and Social Science Schools, for joint honours students, I could bring forward their concerns and liaise with the Social and Political Science reps, and other class representatives.
In this time of development for the university, I want to make sure that the members of the School have a say in any changes that may impact on their university careers at this localized level. In line with this- following the SRC’s implementation of pop-up Study spaces- I will aim to reinforce that during exam periods these spaces remain functioning, especially if level two remains uncompleted. Furthermore, I would aim to strengthen the link between Class Representatives and School Representatives, to really gain insight into any problems students may be having with specific courses. Class Facebook groups seem to be areas of insight into any problems students may have, therefore I will make sure class representatives also bring any queries mentioned via social media to the Councils attention.
Thank you for reading my manifesto! It would be great if you could vote for me!
