VP Education Kate Roberts rounds up the achievements of the incredible students who volunteer as your academic reps, lobbying for change and working with departments to bring you a better educational experience through representing your academic interests at a department and school level.
It seems so recently that we developed a new system in partnership with the University to champion academic representation, following our review in 2018. Having been both a course rep and now VP Education during this time, I am extremely proud to have witnessed first-hand the fantastic improvements which have been made to ensure your voice is being heard at Royal Holloway.
One of the real privileges of my role is being able to work with the incredible students who volunteer as your academic reps, lobbying for change and working with departments to bring you a better educational experience through representing your academic interests at a department and school level. I wish I was able to highlight each and every one of the reps individually for their hard work this year, but that would be a mighty long blog! Firstly a massive congratulations again to this year’s Rep of the Month winners:
I would also like to shout out some of our wonderful academic reps and the brilliant impacts they have made this year:
A huge thank you to all of the academic reps who worked hard to bring about improvements this year, especially working in the last few months to ensure students’ interests are represented during this difficult time. A big shout out to all the PGT and PGR academic reps who will continue to represent students over this unusual term of their courses!
This year also included the introduction of our new school reps, a vital role developed through the new school structure, who represent students within the six schools. A huge thank you and congratulations to these students who have worked hard all year as the first-ever school reps to represent you within school-level meetings and attended the SU Education Committee! The school reps have been extremely dedicated and developed the role within the school, congratulations and good luck as well to the students who you elected to be your school reps in the 2020-21 year, we look forward to working with you!
If you are interested, make sure you keep an eye out at the start of next year for your opportunity to be an academic rep, maybe you will be making these fantastic impacts next year!
