Beyond experience, I show the values, tenacity and drive to push projects forward. Heck - I travelled from Korea to Europe by public transport just to show it was possible!

While I hold stakeholders to account, I’ll want to hear your input each step of the way. Together, we can enact change.

  • Reduce the BAME attainment gap and investigate the effectiveness of assessments to guarantee inclusiveness and fairness for every student studying UCL

  • My Dissertation involves interviewing staff members to investigate problems with teaching at UCL during and after the pandemic. I have valuable insight into teaching practices and, as such, can work towards a collaborative learning approach between students and staff
  • Having been a transition mentor and welcome ambassador for UCL, I can communicate on a 1-1 basis and within teams effectively
Please summarise why students should vote for you.

The pandemic put forth an opportunity to drastically shift UCL’s educational practices. Still, UCL did not deliver high-quality teaching befitting the 8th ranked university in the World QS Standings. During this time, students also had little say in their study concerns, thus severely impacting their learning and mental wellbeing. If I get elected as the educational officer, I want to address these issues. I believe I can represent students at higher positions to fight for better educational practices, ensuring students receive world-class learning.

I hooe to strive for fair and equal education for all students in ucl and to balance out the opportunities given to each student as imbalances is very common due to either personalities or backgrounds that they’re from.

I am a very observant person so I might spot problems that is not obvious or significant which is very crucial in helping with education in University as we have a diverse community.’low-key spies’ are really interesting to have so that a comprehensive view of the general education situation can be determined. I am also well adapted to any new positions and are passionate to try out new things. Most importantly is I do really care about fair education as I’ve once suffered from an equal opportunities hence I am eager to strive for our students.

Dilara Saglam
What do you hope to achieve in the role if you are elected?

Though UCL are ranked as one of the top universities globally, I believe defects exist within the academic side of the institution. The significance of diversity must continue to be embraced across all respective disciplines; formulating inclusive content would remain the forefront of many of my projects. I hope to increase the role of students in shaping their own university experience, empowered to voice concerns via different platforms.I seek to enact upon the interests of UCL's students and formulate a system to ensure that everyone's academic experience remains enjoyable. 

What will you bring to this role (e.g. experience, skills or qualities)?

I am an active participant in the History Department's BAME 'Awarding Gap' Project, a scheme designed to address and combat the lack of representation of undergraduate Black, Asian and minority ethnic students within the History discipline.Focus group discussions are often centred around generating strategies to make UCL's History course more accessible and inclusive.Public speaking has been central to my role as a member of the leadership committee at sixth form.Being an ambassador for the Belsen 75 Legacy Project had provided me with the opportunity to motivate change.

Please summarise why students should vote for you.

UCL represents an emblem of today's world, beaming with different cultures, races and ethnicities; an institution that welcomes all, irrespective of their social circumstances.My Turkish and Russian roots have not blighted my opportunities in academic progression, rather I have thrived within UCL's diversified institution. If elected, I will undoubtedly comply with the student voices and actively generate strategies to ensure everyone receives access to an exceptional standard of education.For me, the role is not considered a formal obligation, rather a reward to induce real change.
