Nabil - Academic Officer

My objectives for this year are:

  • More relaxed policy around extenuating, mitigating circumstances

    - I will request special consideration for mitigating, extenuating, exceptional or special circumstances procedures or factors affecting performance of students on campus. Most students face enormous process and policy during academic integrity or when they unable to submit their work timely. Most times some of them cannot pay for GP letters or face massive queue before they could see their GPs and the University will not grant their extenuating circumstance unless a GP letter is produced.
  • Early release of timetable

    - Time table has become a menace in our campus which has disabled many students to plan and organise their day to day activities. I will fight and ensure the University put in adequate resources to ensure all students gets there time table timely for both lectures and exam.
  • International health surcharge for international students (HIS)

    - The government charges the international students the sum of £300 annually for health related issue when studying in the UK and there are plans for further increase up to £400 in 2020. I will lobby the University to subsidise this fee without increasing the tuition fee for international students to make them not incurred unnecessary debt during their time studying in our University.
  • Free printing

    - I will fight and lobby against University printing cost and all other hidden cost on campus.
    - I will ensure the University prioritize the hardship fund for students who are disadvantaged and from underrepresented groups.
     
  • Fit for purpose library and conducive learning environment
     

    - During my time studying for masters, the University library I far away from been a market place because it is not fit for purpose and hence students find it hard to have quiet study space for learning and reading. I will ensure the University construct a library that is fit for purpose to ensure students have excellent University and campus experience.

    - I will ensure all our classrooms are equipped with modern heating facility compared to what we have currently in majority of classrooms across the University
