Why are you standing?: 

My name is Jyothi Gupta and I am applying for the position Welfare and International officer 2019 at our UCL Student Union. I will take this opportunity to meet and work with some amazing people and create unforgettable memories. Throughout my time involved with the Student Union I will make many positive changes and want to develop further with my work experience and knowledge.

I am at Bartlett Centre of Advanced Spatial Analysis doing my graduate study in Smart cities and Urban Analytics. Prior to this, I worked as Architect, Data scientist and have good work experience in largest organisation Larsen and Toubro from India.

My aim is to increase communication between international students within our university with various activities as listed below;

1. Health – Yoga

2. International Festival

3. Sustainability marathons

4. Social networking

5. Accommodation

6. Discrimination

I have worked best in my life experience and I want to make sure you, with my handwork and sincerity will accomplish set goals so that you get some lifelong memories from UCL to takeaway.

Why are you standing?: 

As an international myself I can relate to the pain points that international students have faced. I have been disappointed by the lack of support and guidance that UCL offers its highest paying students. The lack of support is particularly evident in the careers section especially for those students who are on a visa and will need sponsorship to work in the UK. I believe that the university should provide more focus on its international students as they make up 47.1% of the total number of undergraduates ( 15.7% EU, 31.4% non-EU). If UCL is so proud of being a Global University, surely they should provide more support for its highest-fee paying demographic?

Why are you standing?: 

My name is Aatikah Malik, and my time as a History undergraduate at UCL has comprised of some of the best and worst times. In a tough environment such as UCL where the pressure to excel is so great, I know how it feels to be alienated, marginalised and as if your specific needs are being unfulfilled. It would therefore be my personal pleasure and duty as your Welfare and International Officer to ensure your university environment is a comfortable, safe and loving haven; one in which every student, specifically those from underrepresented groups, would feel welcome.

I propose to do this by addressing the following areas

INCREASED AWARENESS OF MENTAL HEALTH AND SUPPORT

-Stronger zero tolerance on sexual harassment in both the Union and University campus

-Stronger personal tutoring systems and mental health training

-permanent nap rooms and productive use of new space

COMBATTING DISCRIMINATION

-Decolonise the curriculum and ensure BME students sense of belonging and welfare

-ensure more culturally sensitive mental health service

-strengthen the hate crime reporting centre and

STUDENT COMMUNITY

-support estranged students and those with English as second language

-remove attendance monitoring scheme

HOUSING AND FINANCE

-cut the rent and help students with financial management and housing advice through Lobbying the University
