My name is Diederik and I’m looking to represent your academic interests to our department, our lecturers and the union.
In terms of academics, I was on the dean’s list last year and I attend all the lectures. However, the position of academic rep is more about being a representative than it is about being good at academics. Representation is about being an active part of our student body,... read more
Figuring out what we want as a year group is quite the impossible task.
On one side of the lecture hall, there are those of us who stay on top of every tutorial sheet, ask for “harder” Mechatronics progress tests and came here to be challenged. However, if you look a little bit further, you will also find those – like me – who are barely clinging onto the cacophony of information that is indiscriminately thrown... read more
I am Areeb Nasim Haider and I would love this opportunity to represent all of you as your academic representative this year. With all of us in 2nd year, there will undoubtedly be an increase in workload and difficulty.
We will run into difficulties at some point during the year (being behind on tutorial sheets, too much content, lectures going too fast etc). That's where I come in; I'd be more than... read more
For those that don’t know me, my name is Calum and I have chosen to run as your student academic representative again this year in order to continue to practice my bias to action through the belief that asking a question is always the route to your solution. So it is important to note - that I am never afraid to do so.
For me this role has been centred on inclusivity and I promise to continue to champion this... read more
I’m not going to go on about myself, how I’ve always represented my year groups, how I’ve always dreamt about becoming the representative of this and that...because it isn’t the case and you guys probably don't care anyway.
Simply, we've all noticed that parts of our course could be dealt with more efficiently. Getting into what may be the toughest academic year of your lives, it is... read more
Hey Everyone, I’m Priyam and I’m running to become your 2nd Year MechEng academic rep. Having spent a year in this department, I’ve experienced the teaching approaches that work well compared to aspects that could be improved to help make our time on the course more productive. Having been part of the Senior Leadership team during Sixth Form, I’ve had the opportunity to work with both members of staff and student... read more
Apart from the school council experience I, and most others, have I think I’d be a decent academic rep because:
a) I definitely take a while to understand most of the stuff we are taught, and also very often if there’s something some of our cohort find a bit tricky or just too confusing, trust me I‘m one of them. Now this may not be the most reassuring admission for an academic rep, but it... read more
