Happy New Year from the Theatre and Performance Blog! We hope you all enjoyed your winter break and are ready to return to your studies feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
As the new term approaches, it’s a great time for students to familiarise themselves with a few of their Department Representatives. Here are Grace, Yasmin and Ariel to give an insight into what they do…
Hey everyone, we are three of your Theatre and Performance Student Representatives!
“We aim to resolve student queries and concerns to improve their university experience. Throughout the year, we will sit in on a variety of forums, committee, and board meetings. This allows us to voice student concerns to senior staff.”
As Student Accessibility and Inclusion Rep, part of Ariel Albuquerque’s (email@example.com) role is to speak to students who have Reasonable Adjustments for Study and Assessments (RASAs).
“During meetings with staff, I communicate the concerns and queries of those with RASAs. It is my job to ensure that these students have all the tools to succeed in their degrees. I also work alongside academic staff to ensure that the diversity of the student body is reflected in the curriculum. We work to encourage the inclusion of a diverse range of themes, writers and performance makers.”
This year, a huge focus for us Reps is to create a greater TaP student community. We are working on developing a TaP buddy system, as well as creating communal spaces for students to meet and chat.
Please feel free to email us with any issues or ideas you may have!
