Augustus is the Deputy President Education at De Montfort Students' Union and a member of the Trustee board.
Currently studying Accounting and Finance Ba at DMU, Augustus has been involved in many aspects of the students' union before his current position including being a Course Rep, a School Representative Coordinator, a Freshers' Rep and MyUniPal Mentor.
His hobbies outside DSU include video gaming, social networking and going to the gym.
Why did Augustus want to become a Trustee?
"It is not a common role to do at my age and it was a role I wanted to explore and develop key competencies that will make me a lot more employable when I (eventually) finish my degree."
What does he want to achieve as a Trustee?
"I would like to be a part of shaping the way the DSU is run, strategically. I have a genuine attachment to the DSU as they have given me so many opportunities to work on my personal develop. I would like to be a part of every success that the DSU has from the top.
As well as my trustee hat on, I have decided to have three strong focuses this year:
Engaging, recognising and rewarding student representatives for the work that they do and helping students gain the employment they desire through the experience they have developed.
Providing more access to student services and raising awareness of them to enhance the student experience.
Work to improve consistency within feedback on assessments to better the student experience.
