Deputy President Education

Your De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU) Deputy President Education for 2017/18 is Mollie Footitt.

Enjoying drawing, reading and cooking (experimental thanks to not being able to eat dairy), Mollie graduated this summer with a degree in Psychology and, typical of your DP Education, is unsurprisingly keen to continue learning! Not only does she aim to teach herself the guitar this year but Mollie is passionate to continue learning throughout life.

With a love for travelling and exploring, she has the lifelong goal of visiting all the continents and to travel as much as possible. However, as a big fan of animals and their welfare, her current goal for now is to get a DSU dog…

As your new Deputy President Education, Mollie’s key responsibilities revolve around ensuring that you as students are satisfied whilst studying at uni. She’ll be listening to what you have to say, whether it be education related issues or feedback, and acting upon it in order to enhance the education here at DMU.

As well as running academic and educational campaigns, Mollie will also be on board of the Course Reps scheme by organising the relevant conferences and training to ensure that YOU are being represented the best you can be.



  • Exam and Coursework Feedback – Improving feedback throughout the university.
  • Enhancing Employability – To provide opportunities for students on employability.
  • Course Rep Support – To improve feedback and support given to Course and School Reps.
