VP Education successfully lobbies university to address course costs

This year, I have continued to raise awareness of the extra costs that students incur whilst studying at UWE Bristol.

Mental Health Accreditation

In January we launched our societies and sports mental health accreditation. This idea was born after we had Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh speaking at The Students’ Union last year about mental health in sport. We know that sports clubs and societies provide amazing support to our students, and wanted to give them the tools to run their own mental health campaigns.
