School Reps

There are many ways that the Students' Union are here to support you in your time as a Course Rep at Birkbeck. One way is through hiring our 5 School Representatives, one per school, who are employed by the Students' Union to support our Course Reps throughout their time in their role. They are also there to support our students in setting up academic societies, to run alongside their studies, to ensure that our students are getting the most out of their academic experience while studying at Birkbeck. You will be introduced to your School Rep when you are elected as a Course Rep, but if you have any questions or need any support, please find your School Rep's contact details below.

ABI WELLS
My name is Abi, and I’m a first year BA Creative Writing Student. As my course name suggests, I love being creative, especially within the realms of drama, film and creative writing, so it should come as no surprise that I’m super excited about being a Representative for the School of Arts! I truly believe creativity is so incredibly important in the world we live in. It allows us to express ourselves, build confidence, make friends, and can even improve our mental health. My job is to be here for you, to offer help and advice should you have any questions that need answering. I’m just an email away!

Chiranthi Senanayake
My name is Chiranthi Senanayake and I am following an LLM in International Economic Law, Justice and Development at Birkbeck, University of London through the Chevening Scholarship programme. Well this is quite awkward but I can't blow balloons which means I am quite useless at anything involving decorations. The main reason why I applied to be a School Representative is to serve as a liaise between the University Administration and the Students of The School of Law. I want to do what I can to help students through a challenging academic experience which is made more daunting by a pandemic.

CINDY NGO
As a psychology BSc student, I understand the importance of having a supportive system whilst in education. As a school representative, it is my responsibility to actively ensure that students voices are amplified to guarantee that students feel empowered as partners at Birkbeck university. School reps work closely with course reps and student union to shape students educational experience through collecting feedback which can be used to shape change in policy and procedures. The key goal of school representative is to ensure that students at Birkbeck have a meaningful educational experience and strive to continually improve student’s education.

WUMI NUGA
I'm Wumi and I’m in my first year of a part-time MSc in Education Power and Social Change. I joined the Student Voice team because I believe that student-led decision-making is key for an engaging and relevant learning experience. As we all complete our studies online this will be even more important. I'm looking forward to supporting my peers in the School of Social Sciences, History and Philosophy have their voices heard and connect with each other. I have a background in International Development and joined Birkbeck because of its flexible learning options. A bit about me, I volunteer as a Brownie Leader with Girlguiding and I love cycling.
