Postgraduate Taught Officer
Hey, my name is Krum Tashev and I am running to be your Postgraduate Taught Rep.
I came to the UK five years ago to do my undergraduate degree in Politics and Religious Philosophy in Canterbury where I did two years as a Students Union President. Beforehand wile studying I was faculty and course rep and international students officer, as well as that I was a member of the Nationality Executives Council of the National Union of Students. In my term as SU President I established the Postgraduate committee, won a £20 000 bid for renovation of the PG room, created a network between the aught and the research PG students and got 50 additional lockers for PG students on campus.
If Elected I will:
- Establish links between reps from different departments to create stronger post graduate student voice in SOAS.
- Collect student feedback on the Postgraduate room and lobby for improvement reflecting the student needs.
- Work with the University and the Union to improve the induction prices in particular I want to work on PG students getting their timetables in time, and not in the first week of teaching.
- I want to work with the other officers (such as: LGBTQIA+, International, etc.) organising accessible campaigns and events, improving the student experience of the PG community.
- As a voluntary education officer representing postgraduate taught students I will lobby on Local and National level for free education.
