School of Social, Historical and Political Studies Updates

Weekly Update 16/03/2021

Hey Everyone!

I hope you are all doing well and are keeping safe.

I have been working again today and wanted to provide you all with a quick update. First though, just wanted to let you know that I am going to be hosting a drop-in session this Thursday (18/03/2021) via Zoom between 12:00 Hrs and 14:00 Hrs alongside a few other of the School Reps. Please feel free to drop in if you would like - the link to join is here:

Here is what I have been up to today:

  • I have read through and checked my latest e-mails relating to student issues and I am now all caught up on these.

  • I have read through the latest Coronavirus updates from the University ready to pass this information onto students as and where necessary.

  • I have checked through the Microsoft Teams chat channel for any messages relating to student issues. 

  • I have contacted some of the various Student WhatsApp groups I am a member of to make students aware that I am working today and available to assist if anyone has any issues or concerns. I have heard nothing as of yet and have not been made aware of any issues.

  • I have contacted the Course Rep. WhatsApp group that I am in to check in with the reps and see if there is anything I can help with. No issues here.

  • I have posted a message in the Microsoft Teams chat channel to all of my Course Reps. making them aware that there is a drop-in session this upcoming Thursday with myself and my fellow School Reps. I have requested they filter this information through to their fellow students. Hope to see you there!

  • A student has contacted me stating that they are struggling with a module assignment re-take. I have advised them to contact their tutor as well as their marker so that they can understand where they went wrong when they now come to write their re-take.

  • I am due to attend a meeting later today with the Student's Union Academic Officers where we shall link up and discuss student feedback around campus.

And that's it for today's update folks!

Please take care of yourselves and feel free to reach out if you need me for anything. My contact e-mail is:

Kind Regards,
