Jiayu Yin /

Why are you standing?: 

I would like to bring your opinion of how things are to the attention of those who can do something about it. I value honesty over courtesy so if something isn’t right then I will be upfront in bringing any and all issues up, wether it’s yours, your friends’ or even my own. Please feel free to approach me with any feedback no matter how formal or informal a way in which you decide to do it. I also know how to speak Chinese mandarin should any students from China wish to confide their thoughts and views about their course with me in the comfort of their own language! Studying a postgraduate degree is a huge investment in yourself and I want to help you be able to get the most worth out of it!

Andreas Weinzierl /

Why are you standing?: 

Hi, my name is Andy and I’m running for the position as a representative for the Mathematical and Physical Sciences faculty! I study here at UCL Technology Management, am 24 years old and was born in Munich, Germany. I founded two small start-ups and am still working intensively on one of them. I have also worked in Germany and the USA for large corporations such as BMW, Porsche, Fraunhofer and Allianz. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Logistics Engineering and Management. I want to combine the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Science with a spirit of entrepreneurship. Events or competitions on business ideas with a thematic reference would be an exciting thing to do. Otherwise my election program is intentionally empty. This is not about me, rather about all the students of this faculty. If you elect me as your representative, I will read your wishes and we will agree on the agenda together.

Why are you standing?: 

My top priority will be to open up a dialogue between staff and students. I will be easily contactable via Email and Facebook for everyone in the faculty. I will make sure you don’t waste time trying to find and contact specific staff members.

I have experience in dealing with student-staff communication, and making degree-wide change. As an undergraduate I played a significant role in discussing and fixing issues within the programme, such as a lack of opportunities for group study. The department has now reformed to make group projects an integral part of the course.

I believe we should be provided with the correct tools to study: lecture theatres which meet the needs of the teaching, easy access to any resources required, and sufficient study space within the university for physics postgraduates - particularly around exam time and project deadlines. These are a few of the key areas that I would focus on improving as your faculty representative.
