    Covid-19 Pandemic

    What's the big idea?

    This has undoubtedly been the worst year to be a student. It's been incredibly tough for all of us; online teaching, a lack of face-to-face interaction and missing out on what it is like to be a student has had a massive impact on our experience. I believe we get more from university's day-to-day life experiences than we do from just studying. Whatever your subject is, everything you do around your studies makes a massive impact on the person you have become by graduation day. We've lost so much this year, and I want to make sure where possible we make up for what we've missed.

    How will it benefit students?

    The pandemic has presented no end of new problems for us all, but the least we expect is that our university helps to provide solutions to our problems. I think most of us understand that a lot of the events of the last year have been out of the university's hands, and we appreciate all they've done to help and support us so far. However, at times there have been failures. I think it's also important to recognise the opportunities that are arising from this pandemic. We are perhaps about to enter a boom of life and energy. Let's take this time when things are bad to make services that were already lacking better than before! As mentioned, my main three aims as we hopefully see an end to this pandemic will include: - Ensuring students don't miss out on 'that experience' - Graduation Ceremonies and other key university events. - Ensuring Mental Health Support is available and absolute.


    Currently, I'm involved in the vast planning for welcome week and freshers fair 2021. I'm pleased to share that the union team have been working for months to ensure that as much as possible, all LSBU students have the very best start to their academic year this September.

    The university has confirmed that graduation ceremonies will take place, but we're still waiting on dates. In the meantime, current graduates can get involved with the festival of success programme.

    Mental Health support is due to receive a university-wide overhaul with the implementation of the new LEAP software programme from October 2021.
