Postgraduate Officer

Vaishnavi Ravi

Vice President for Postgraduate


Hi! I'm Vash (she/her) and I'm your Vice President for Postgraduates. I will be representing postgraduates and I'm committed to enhancing your experience at university.

Course: MScR in physics

Hometown: Bangalore, India (lived in Manchester before university)

Fun fact about me: I love chess, one of my favourite players is Tal.

My role and what I hope to achieve this year:

  • My priorities are to ensure that postgraduates have better working conditions and adequate resources such as academic support, career development resources, and mental health services.
  • Fighting for better pay and well-defined contracts for postgraduates employed by the university by working with UCU.
  • I aim to make the university environment safer and more inclusive for all students, and to increase the affordability and sustainability of student life on campus.
  • I will achieve these goals by collaborating with other full-time officers as well as the university.
