Candidate for the position of Undergraduate Senate Rep - Arts

CHARLIE HANCOCK

Challenging complacency; pushing the faculty forward

Art Students deserve better. Education cuts are threatening the Faculty of Arts. However, I will be committed to ensuring the faculty moves forward into the future.

 

Here are 3 things I aim to do:

 

  1. Improve the quality of teaching.

An increase in tuition fees has undoubtedly left many of you feeling angry. However, the rise means the university will receive more money to spend on teaching. I will ensure this money is spent in the right way that increases the quality of teaching you receive.

 

  1. Engage with academic societies.

Currently the senate representative does not collaborate with student-run societies. As a second year historian, I will liaise with the history society and other societies to ensure your views are heard and implemented.

 

  1. Improve the reputation of art students.

As art students we continually hear: ‘What can you do with your degree?’ I shall aim to change the negative perception of art students, and promote our value in society. Gordon Brown, John Prescott, Lord Sainsbury (CEO Sainsbury’s) and Anita Roddick (founder of Body Shop) all have an Arts Degree.

 

If elected I will ensure your experience as an undergraduate at Bristol is the best it can be.
