Vice President Education

About Me

Hi, my name’s Maia and I’m your Vice President Education!

As VP Ed, I will communicate your academic interests to senior staff and turn student feedback into concrete change in order to give you the best teaching and learning experience.

Throughout the year, I will amplify the concerns of students in college meetings, work closely with academic reps and listen to their feedback, and deliver campaigns that enhance your educational experience.

I aim to centre student voices in the transition out of the pandemic and ensure that the benefits and increased accessibility brought about by COVID measures stay.

My plans for this year include revamping the Personal Tutoring system to ensure that all students receive comprehensive support, implementing the recommendations from the Joint Honours Insight Report, and increasing academic peer support by bringing Writing Cafés to more departments. I’m sure many exciting ideas will be put forward by students this year and I can’t wait to put your suggestions into action!

If you have any questions or are interested in becoming an academic rep and helping other students, feel free to get in contact!

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.
