Students' Union, first floor

A bit about the role

Not only is the Vice President Education the Deputy President of the Students’ Union but they also sit on a number of high level committees including Academic Board where the academic strategy of the College is decided.

Alongside this, VP Education sits on the Union’s Board of Trustees. They work on campaigns aimed at improving the academic experience on campus and have a real impact on the academic rep system, empowering students to make change on their courses and within their departments. 

A word from Kate

Hi, I’m Kate, your Vice President Education!

My role is to represent your academic interests and help improve your academic experience on campus. I do this through empowering academic reps, attending College meetings, running campaigns, and everything day to day in between!

I sit on a number of University committees including Academic Board where the academic strategy of the College is decided. Through representing student interests on these committees I lobby the College to make important changes to improve your student experience.

My role is also to work on campaigns aimed at improving the academic experience on campus and have oversight on the academic rep system, empowering students to improve their courses and departments.

This year I will be specifically focusing on online resources, addressing the BAME attainment gap and improving the way we interact with academic societies.

If you’re interested in becoming an academic rep or have any questions, please get in touch!
