Hi, my name is Phoebe and I studied a level 6 BSc top-up degree in Applied Social Sciences at UoG. I loved every minute of my year at UoG and as your new SU Welfare Officer, I want to make sure that every student can say this too! Take a look at some of my manifesto points below to see how I'm working to improve the student experience here at UoG:
Student-led mentoring for freshers
Starting university can be an exciting but daunting time for new students, which is why I want to make the process a little easier and less stressful. So this year I will be piloting a student-led mentoring scheme for adult nursing students. This means that new adult nursing students will be paired with returning adult nursing students who will be able to offer advice and support during those crucial first months at university!
Campaign to increase university spending on student services
Student wellbeing should be a number 1 priority for the university, so I want to make sure that student services are adequately funded to be able to provide the right services for students at the right time. I will start by writing a paper on student experiences of student services at UoG to present to the university.
Room bookings when are where you need them
Completing assignments, revising for exams and running societies is difficult enough as it is, without the hassle of navigating room bookings too. As Welfare Officer, I am working to improve the room booking process for students so that everyone knows how and when they are able to book rooms at the university.
