President, Education & Campaigns

Tasha Barrett


I'm Tasha your Students' Union President, Education & Campaigns. I enrolled at Royal Holloway in 2012 and since then have found the SU to be a really supportive and inclusive organisation. I quickly became involved in the Feminist Society and went on to be President in my second year and then SU Women’s Officer. I was also on the editorial board for the Founder and closely involved with Insanity Radio as well as spending two years as a Course Rep and Peer Guide for the English Department. I’m enormously excited to be able to continue my involvement with our SU in a full-time role and wish to make sure that all student voices are heard and listened to.

In my role, I’ll be…

  1. Improving the education experience of Royal Holloway’s students, for example through the redevelopment of the Course Rep system.
  2. Creating and promoting both our own campaigns and collaborations with other organisations on campus and within our student body.
  3. Be available to listen to student feedback whether that be positive or negative in order to help the SU take concerns on board and react accordingly.
  4. Sitting on the Education Council to liaise with students as well as College Council which allows me to transfer outcomes of Education Council into the setting of Royal Holloway itself for the consideration of the Principal and other council members.

How to contact me...

I'm located in the open plan office upstairs in the Students' Union. Pop up for a quick chat about or you can get in touch via email or on Twitter @mufasabarrett.
