Hey, I'm Lucy – and I'm The Union's Education Officer. I studied Fashion at MMU before getting elected into my role, this is my second year and I’m really excited to keep campaigning on issues that matter and affect students, and keep on representing to try and make positive changes for students!
I work on all things that affect students’ Education at Manchester Met, such as influencing policy on assessments, deadlines, examinations, submissions, teaching, learning, timetables, representation and exceptional factors. I believe that the university should support all students to achieve their ambitions, and I use students comments and course reps’ voice to make changes students want to see!
After presenting all your comments about Lecture Capture to the university, I’m negotiating changes to make sure more students get lecture capture, even if you’re on a small course. We’ve just had Course Rep Con which was fantastic, I really enjoyed chatting with more course reps and having speakers in from the world of activism and education to talk about things like Fees and diversity. I’m currently collecting student stories about what it’s like to be a commuter student to compile into a new report, and working with the university to reduce Examinations and review the Exceptional Factors scheme, to make it easier and more clear and fair for students experiencing hard times.
