You have made the choice to come to DMU, and you should have a voice in how your course is run. You need to squeeze everything out of your university experience and I’m here to help you do so. Hello I’m Abbie, I’ve just finished my third year at DMU and I want to be your Deputy President of Education. Education is the most important part of coming to university and your course should work for you, I’m here to listen to any suggestions you have on how your course could be even more beneficial. The course rep system has done brilliant things this year, but I want to kick it up a notch. Fortnightly meetings with every course rep, I’ll speak to all of you individually and listen to any problems, changes or positive responses you have. The most important thing is that you are happy with your degree when you leave DMU. A degree is hard work, but university is also about having a good time, which is easy to do with all the society’s DMU offer. Timetabling can become a big issue, during second year I cancelled on so many socials because I had a 9 am on Thursday morning, and I don’t think that’s fair. You are encouraged to join societies and I do not think your timetable should stop you from doing so. I’ll be working through summer involved in each faculty and trying as hard as I can to give you the best schedule. I love DMU and I want you to feel as at home here as I do, I will work to bring around any change you think is needed, I know being away from home can be tough but I want you to enjoy every second you spend here in Leicester.
