Rep of the Month

Our reps do amazing work on a daily basis, and we want to recognise and reward that. Every month for the rest of the academic year, we'll be running our 'Rep of the Month' scheme. How it works: each month, our networks of ~500 reps are given the opportunity to nominate fellow reps and then vote for a winner in three categories. These are UG Academic Rep, UG Wellbeing Rep, and PG Rep.

Each Rep of the Month is awarded the following:

  • Rep of the Month pin badge (if we ever manage to find them in the office...)
  • £20 voucher for a retailer of their choice
  • Rep of the Month certificate
  • Nomination for Academic/Wellbeing Rep of the Year at Union Awards

The latest Reps of the Month are for February. Here are the winners and a summary of why they were nominated!

February 2021

Yasmin Baker - MBBS Year 1 Rep - Academic Rep of the Month

Yasmin received a large number of nominations from students who clearly are very appreciative of her efforts, the positive impact on their experience and how approachable she is. Yasmin has been proactively raising the student voice, and successful in solving issues around timetabling, live sessions and the delivery of content. She keeps her cohort in the loop, and ensures there is good two-way communication with the department. Simply put, one nomination said 'She is an amazing rep, she takes all of our feedback and produces immediate results'. Congratulations, Yasmin!

Dawood Khan - Bioengineering Year 1 Rep - Wellbeing Rep of the Month

This quote from the nomination sums it up perfectly: 'Dawood has always been so caring and helpful to the students, he always makes sure we know that we can reach out to him'. Congratulations, Dawood!

Irene Sugurova - MSc Health Data Analytics and Machine Learning Rep - PG Rep of the Month

Irene was lauded for her commitment to student representation for her course, engaging the community and being a champion for students who are struggling. She's already implemented many different things to mitigate against the effects of remote learning such as weekly student/TA hangouts, 'Study Halls' over Zoom, and progress around improving the way the department receives feedback from the students. Irene has clearly had a massive positive impact on the experience of students on her course. Congratulations, Irene!
