VP Welfare & Equalities

Your VP Welfare is responsible for ensuring your voice is heard on all issues relating to support, health, safety, wellbeing and inclusion.

Jannatul Ferdous 

Hiya! I am Jannatul Ferdous(she/her), and I am your VP Welfare and Equality for the 2021/2022 academic year. 

I have spent three years at London South Bank University - 2 years as an LLB Hons(LAW) student and representing you last year as a Sabbatical officer at the Students’ Union. This year I will work with a fantastic officer team –Max (Union President), Rabbi (VP Education) & Joel (VP Activities). We are all committed to making sure your time at university is memorable, comfortable, and the most impactful for your career.

Along with the 21/22 officer team, I want to make sure that every student at LSBU is proud of their Students’ Union.

How I got involved in the SU

I arrived at LSBU back in 2018 as a Law Student from Bangladesh. Joining the Law society was my first interaction with the SU. During the 2019 Refreshers Fair, I got to see how the SU worked more closely. In the same year, I started working with SU as one of the Student Trustee. From that moment, I feel like my actual journey with the Students’ Union began, and my university journey became better and better. During the last academic year, I became more aware of problems students' were facing - and areas of the university that could improve, which is how I made up my mind to run for Vice President Welfare and Equality again in the 20/21 academic year. Towards the end of my first term, I felt there was so much more I wanted to achieve for the students at LSBU, which is why I decided to re-run. 

Thank you all for electing and putting your trust in me for the 21/22 academic year.
