Shubham: Postgraduate Education Officer

Hello, I am Shubham Singh and I am currently Postgraduate Education Officer. My role encompasses representing Postgraduate (both taught and research) students at all possible levels within University and improving their student experience, particularly, in regard to well-being and academic affairs.

In September 2016, I came to Bristol to do MSc Gender and International Relations. Alongside my studies, I got involved with SU by getting into Course rep role, Democratic Standards Committee and Best of Bristol Lectures Committee. Soon, I came across the opportunity to stand for full-time officer role which I thought would be a great opportunity to build upon my experiences gained in previous roles and make even bigger and better changes on a University-level.

If there is anything that affects your educational experience and would want to discuss with me further, please feel free to get in touch with me on facebook or email.

Transport for Langford - 01/12/2015

Active

  • 22/3/16 - Laura met with Amy Heritage (Transport) and people from the school of vet science - they acknowledge the need but don't have the resource. The University is coming up to the process where they re-tender for transport contracts and are finding out how much it would cost to include a service to Langford that works for Postgrads to see if the central University is willing to fund it. The action from the meeting was for the students to put together a document detailing their ideal service and a service they would be willing to settle for
