About Me

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

One of my key roles throughout the year is to represent, communicate and support your academic interests and wellbeing, helping to make your university experience the best it can possibly be.

This involves me maintaining a strong relationship with the academic reps, contributing and advocating positive changes in college meetings, and creating campaigns to make student life better at Royal Holloway.

Despite the global pandemic and the challenges that come along with it, I endeavour to create positive educational change for students, all the way from foundation years, to postgraduates.

I intend to do this by increasing the number of online resources, making them as accessible and interactive as possible, continuing to tackle work on the BAME attainment gap, and improve the educational experience of those struggling with their mental and physical wellbeing.

If you have any questions, or would like to be involved in academic representation, do not hesitate to get in touch!

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.
