Plain text manifesto:
Conrad for Education
Putting Students First
- Tackle hidden course costs
- Continue the campaign for universal lecture capture and earlier exam timetables
- Increased study space
- Retain and increase choice in modules and assessment
- Standardise and improve feedback methods
- Education Exec member
- Involved in motions at All Student Vote about lecture capture and exam timetables
- Secretary of a campaigning society
- Third year Biochemistry student
- Finding study space can be a nightmare, especially in exam season. I will lobby the university for more study space, and for improvements to the study space finder feature on the Warwick app to better utilise what is already there.
- Students deserve more choice in modules and assessment methods, not less. I will work to ensure that students can make their own decisions wherever possible.
- Hidden course costs can be very detrimental especially for working class students. I will lobby for more materials such as books to be available online.
Fairness for students
- Lecture capture is not only a great revision tool but also benefits students who cannot attend due to illness, disability, caring responsibilities, job interviews and more. I will keep up the fight for universal lecture capture.
- Earlier exam timetables will benefit students who need to plan ahead regarding jobs, travel and other life events, and this is something I want to continue to campaign for.
- Feedback for modules and personal tutors is important, yet it’s inconsistent across departments. I will fight for standardisation so all students are treated the same, no matter their course.
An accessible education
- Bus services from Leamington and Coventry can be late or crowded, meaning students have their education disrupted. I will lobby Stagecoach and National Express for more frequent bus services at peak times and over exam season.
- Working class boys are the least likely of any group to attend university. I will engage in outreach and argue for better support for these and other marginalised groups once they are at Warwick.
- Mental health can massively affect students and their education. I will carry out an awareness campaign of the Student Union’s current mental health services and continually look for areas of improvement.
