Monika Kovacheva
Hi, I’m Monika Kovacheva, a 4th year BA Comparative Literature student hoping to be your next Arts & Humanities Faculty Rep! Having spent two years at UCL and a year at Humboldt University I have gained the necessary insight into both the opportunities that UCL offers, and the disadvantages that our Faculty suffers.
As a Course & Department Rep during my two years at UCL I have always strived to improve communication between students and staff. NOW it’s time for CHANGE on a BIGGER scale!

As Faculty Rep I pledge to bring 3 significant improvements to Arts & Humanities:

1. CAREER OPPORTUNITIES: Relatives constantly asking what are you going to do after you graduate? You don’t know… We desperately need an Arts & Humanities CAREER FAIR, CAREER MENTORS & SKILLS-BASED lectures! And provide more support for first years’ transition to university!

2. FEEDBACK: we need to IMPROVE the response-rate & quality of feedback, because we depend on it, more than any other faculty!

3. SOCIAL EVENTS: more AWESOME in quality, WAY more frequent in quantity. UCL surveys have proven what we already know – the Arts & Humanities Faculty lacks the sense of community of other faculties.

Katherine Forster
I am a 4th year student at the Slade, previously representing Slade Fine Art Media as an academic rep. Alongside uni, I have worked in the management team of an anarchosocialist arts venue for over two years.

My priorities as your Arts & Humanities faculty rep:

1) Being a proactive advocate.
UCL is big, and it can often feel like individuals don’t have a voice. In the past, I have advocated ferociously for the issues brought to me by other students. I would encourage all students to reach out with their concerns – I will make sure you are heard.

2) Mental health and emotional wellbeing.
Ensuring all students feel they have the support they need is critical. Having experienced a wide array of UCL’s pastoral care, I’m familiar with its strengths and shortcomings. I will work for positive change in protocol and services, and I am here to listen when things go wrong.

3) Interaction between A&H departments.
As your faculty rep, I will work to support the exchange of events, knowledge, and greater interaction between departments, to the benefit of everybody and for a more unified faculty.

A vote for me is a vote for care, solidarity, and collaboration.
Priscille Nlele
Hi Guys,

I’m Priscille and I’m first year student studying Arts and Sciences. However, I have already studied one year before transferring to UCL. So, I know all the difficulties of university life and how much it’s important to have a good support. University it’s not just about studying it’s also having experiences to extend our interest as well as our career prospects especially when the whole world says that a STEM degree is more valuable than others, which is absolutely false.
I want to strengthen the arts and humanities community because we are stronger together and most of us are living on their own, so having a real support is essential.
If you have any problems or ideas feel free to contact me
