Hi, I'm MD Rabbi (he/him) and I'm your VP for Education and Deputy President for the 2021/22 academic year. I am an international student from Bangladesh studying Accounting and Finance at LSBU. I started my journey with the Students' Union in 2018 by being elected as an International Students' officer, Course Rep for three years in a row, and your VP Education in the 2020/21 academic year.

I am passionate about you, your voice, your campaign.

    What's the big idea?

    Sport is essential for us all in our day-to-day life. It's healthy, makes you feel good and is proven to improve our mental health. The union currently provides plenty of sports team and memberships at reasonable rates. I know first-hand what it's like on the sports scene at LSBU, having served as President of the men's football team during my second year. I know our biggest problem is engagement. Why is it that in a student population of 18,000, the most subscribed to sports team only has 50 members?

    How will it benefit students?

    I understand there are a lot of barriers to entry for our students. Including inconvenient times, career responsibilities and difficulties in travelling. I want to break down these barriers and make sports teams more accessible to our students. It is a great way to get out and meet some new friends, outside of your course or halls friends. I want to work with our Vice President of Activities and Employability to overcome these issues and increase university-wide uptake. We need to look into this and what is the most effective way of driving up engagement, whether this is through: - Providing more free sessions - Partnerships with various sponsors - Greater variety of sports available, e.g. volleyball

    Updates

    I see lots of exciting work between the union and the academy of sport to provide a good base level of activities from September. I see lots of opportunities going forward to expand this following the initial rollout.
