Exec Officers

Each year, Beds SU holds annual Student Elections, offering each student at the university the opportunity to vote for student candidates who they think will best support, listen to and lead the student voice for everyone.

Get to know your 2021/22 Exec Officers

As a way of introduction, we asked each of your new officers to share their vision for the year ahead and to tell us a little bit about themselves.

Co President (Self identifying Woman)

"I want students to feel best prepared to win, I believe studying is a great opportunity, which should be memorable for the right reasons. I also believe that no Beds student group should be disadvantaged, so I intend to focus on eliminating set-backs for students who identify as being a black or minority ethnic aka BaME, those with disabilities, those with caring responsibilities and students from the LGBT+ community. As we celebrate our differences, equality will prevail when we normalise social inclusion."

"I graduated this July with an MSc in International Business with Law. When I am not working I enjoy being outdoors with my family, drinking hot coffee and listening to loud jazz music."

"My vision is to ensure lectures continue to be recorded and posted online after the return to campus, as well as creating a programme that pushes high achieving students to further excel."

"I have a degree in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics and I’m going to be doing my Masters by research alongside my role as an Exec year, followed hopefully by a PhD."

"As Vice President I would like to see improvement in the BaME awarding gap, greater cultural and environmental recognition and engage with students to motivate and support them in achieving their goals."

"I have just finished my undergraduate foundation year at LSE (London campus) studying for a BS in Business Management, where I was awarded top grades across the 4 units and recieved 'Student of the Unit Certificate'. Away from my studies I enjoy spending time with my friends and gather for games and catching up. I love swimming and to travel. "
