Visit from UoRM

Visit from UoRM

On the 5th of October 2016, the Student Association Executives had the honor of welcoming four representatives from the University of Reading Malaysia (UoRM) to our university. UoRM is the first overseas campus of the University of Reading in the UK, located in Johor. The purpose of this visit was to learn about the Student Association and understand how each Executive plays a role in the university. With UoRM’s growing student population, the institution is interested in starting their very own student union. During our meeting, we discussed about past experiences, successes and failures, and the challenges executives are usually met with while being part of the SA. Not only did we exchange notes on the roles of the SA staff members and executives, we also had the opportunity to bring the UoRM representatives for a short campus tour and ending the day with late lunch at Secret Recipe. (pictures) We hope the representatives of UoRM had a pleasant visit to our university, despite the 4-hour long drive to and fro Johor and Semenyih. Here is to University of Reading Malaysia and their endeavor of establishing a successful student association!   Sasha Amira Home Students...

The Education Network training is conducted every year for all the representatives under the Education Network. The event was scheduled to take place on Tuesday, the 18th of October. The session included briefings about Learning Community Forum important guidelines, duties of the respective representatives, and how to go about solving everyday issues brought up by students.           At 6.45pm, the crowd gathered in, pamphlets handed out to them as they settled down into their seats with the departments they belonged to – these being the Faculty of Arts and Social Science, Faculty of Science and Faculty of Engineering. The emcee, and host of the night, none other than the Education Officer herself, Tormalli V Francis, was getting ready to welcome the representatives to this training program.           The session started at 7pm, with Tormalli giving a brief introduction to the main aims of the Education Network and introducing the department representatives, and the school representatives. She then welcomed the next speaker for the evening, Ms. Vanitha Ponnusamy, the Campus Senior Tutor, to the stage. Ms. Vanitha highlighted some extremely key points in her speech, including some things to keep in mind when bringing up issues to a higher authority. Firstly, she stated that class, school and faculty representatives do not need to wait until an LCF meeting to bring up issues which may be resolved with the module convener. If the problem does not get fixed by the convener, then it may be taken up to school’s senior tutor and then to the director of the school. Secondly, she addressed the...
