What does Bristol SU do?

Chris: Postgraduate Education Officer

Hi, I’m Chris, and I’m your Postgraduate Education Officer this year! My role is all about the representation of both taught and research postgraduate students at the university, particularly regarding issues around academic affairs and the student experience.

I first joined Bristol in 2012 as an undergraduate to study Physics. After graduating in 2016, I stayed on to do a PhD in Membrane Biophysics. As a PhD student, I have been involved with the SU as a course and faculty representative, and my work in those roles motivated me to stand to become a full time representative.

This year, I’ll be working to ensure that Postgraduates are included and represented in all the activities that the SU does, and making sure that we all have the best educational experience possible while studying at Bristol. If you have any ideas for something for me to work on, please get in contact with me through email here.

See everything your SU has been up to here.

My big plan:

  1. Less financial pressure on postgrads
  2. A stronger postgrad community
  3. Postgrad-friendly SU activities
  4. A campus that works for postgrads
  5. Postgrad course support and development opportunities
  6. Developing the Postgraduate Student Experience

Here's what I've done so far:
