Every year the Officer team work on a key campaign for the year. Based on student feedback, the campaign this year is Representing your Academic Interests. The team will be focussing on six key areas to ensure that your voice is heard and your academic experience is the best it can be.


We will focus on Marking and Feedback, Contact Hours, Placement Support, Academic Support, Co-curricular Activities, and Additional Course Costs.

Current Campaigns


The lead officer for this area is VP Education, Sarah Kwedi.
