Why are you running? To improve academic quality for students and the reputation of the university, hopefully leading to better job prospects.

What are your policies? 

  1. Improve academic quality/standards by targeting the amount and quality of contact hours and also the quality of feedback received.
  2. Maintain/increase the quality of students accepted into the University for Courses as a whole, e.g. a university-wide minimum entry requirement.
  3. Target the university’s disappointing NSS (National Student Survey) results and increase the awareness/importance of the survey.

Why should students vote for you? I have prior experience in a similar role as 2nd year Joint Economics Rep. and I genuinely want to improve the academic experience of students at York.

Manifesto in a sentence Improving job prospects through improving academic quality.
