Max 

Hi everyone, my name's Max (he/him), I’m an Accounting and Finance graduate having spent my three years as a student getting fully involved with University life here at LSBU. I began my LSBU journey back in September 2018. I'd moved to London from North Wales and was excited for the journey that lay ahead. I never expected that I could be President of our Students’ Union three years later. I’ve had a truly life changing experience here at LSBU and hope to spend my year as President helping to pass on the transformational experience that I’ve had, to as many of our students as possible.

I've been here for three years, and I feel that I've seen both the good and the bad side of LSBU. I've been fully involved with university life and understand first-hand the problems we all face as students. The last academic year has been really tough for so many of us and I want to work with university teams and departments to improve the parts of our experience that are lacking. So that as we emerge from this pandemic, we can create a far greater university than it ever was before.

How I got involved in the SU

I've held several roles throughout my time at university and have a great flavour of what is already underway and what could make things even better.

My experience at LSBU includes the following:

  • Student Ambassador
  • Residential Life Ambassador (McLaren House)
  • Business Solution Centre, Student Advisor
  • Accounting and Finance Course Rep
  • President of the Men's Football Team
  • University Student Governor
  • Chair of Union Council

These roles have given me a far greater insight into student life at LSBU. I've worked with various teams across the campus. I know what we're doing right and what can be improved. I want to use my experience so far to push for a more inclusive and more diverse university, a university that gives us all a life-changing experience and a university that allows us to reach our full potential. I've had a life-changing experience during my three years here and want to show you that even though times are tough now, together, we can get through this and achieve more.

    Wider IT Issues

    Current
    • President

    What's the big idea?

    Why is it that we have so many places that we have to log on to? The VLE (moodle), the timetable, myLSBU, the results page, email. The accommodation portal if you live in halls. Your staff account if you're a student employee and my workplace. Plus, many more course-specific pages. It's understandable that there may be a few places to log in, but a minimum of five, really? Especially when most of these are LSBU based. We're now going through the IT crisis, and our current IT system isn't even good! Why can't we build back better from this and establish something that allows for a more streamlined student experience?

    How will it benefit students?

    The university needs to take a serious look at this and recognise how much of an inconvenience this system is for modern-day students. We need to explore several options and consider a larger Virtual Learning Environment where everything is accessible and that your timetable, emails and assignments can be viewed side-by-side. We need to consider launching an app that at least delivers the core functionality of the system.
