Talk to me about:
Educational and social experience of postgraduates
Issues facing international students
Postgraduate and International Student Networks
Hello, my name is Shubham Singh and I am currently Postgraduate Education Officer. My role encompasses representing Postgraduate (both taught and research) students at all levels within University and improving their student experience, particularly, in regards to well-being and academic affairs.
In September 2016, I came to Bristol to do MSc Gender and International relations. Outside my studies, I engaged with Best of Bristol (BOB) Lectures Committee, Course Rep role, Democratic Standards Committee and Badminton Club. Participation in extra-curricular activities supported by SU helped me have an enriching social experience and deal with the challenges that come along with moving to a different country for the first time and doing Masters.
