If elected, I will…

Commit to accessibility
I will push for better training on disability and neurodivergence across all departments.
I will work together with the DSO and Warwick disability team to ensure all students are getting a fair education with the adjustments and accommodations they deserve.
I will work to ensure more accessible study spaces are open and available for students to use.

Enhance communication
I will seek to improve timetable releases, as they can vary across departments and cause student uncertainty.
I will lobby departments to ensure clearer guidance surrounding exam deadlines and flexibility.
I will work with departments towards better representation in department SSLCs.

Offer Cost of Living Support
I will lobby the university to provide financial support for those who travel to placements as part of their degree, such as medical students.
I will encourage the university library to continue their fines amnesty amidst the Cost of Living crisis.
I will lobby departments to provide printing allowances for all students.
I will work with international students' officers to encourage the university to introduce an international fee freeze.

Protect students' choice 
I will lobby the university to reverse its decision to limit students' choice in assessment methods.
I will ensure that students’ ability “overcat” is protected.
I will seek to improve feedback forums across the university

SU organised teach-outs 
To elevate important topics that do not receive enough attention in mainstream curriculums, I will organise SU teach-outs in collaboration with societies and PTOs.
Teach-outs will be free to attend for all students.
They will be on important subjects such as (but not limited to): sexual health, disability issues, queer issues and race.
