President: Charlotte Gates

Hello everyone, I’m Charlotte Gates and I have been elected as the President of UCB’s Student Guild for 2017/18. I was a student studying a BA (hons) degree in Specialist Hair and Media Makeup at UCB and although there has been some bumps along the way, University has been one of the best experiences of my life! University College Birmingham offer numerous opportunities that any student can be a part of! I have worked in UCB’s Guild of Students as Welfare, Ethics and Environmental Officer for the 2016/17 academic year and have now been elected by the Student Body to represent all students at UCB as President of the Guild of Students.

As President, it is my job to represent all students’ views. Throughout the year I will also provide support for your wellbeing and studies to ensure that you all have the best student experience at University College Birmingham. As your President, I will oversee the work of the Guild and work alongside the University to ensure that your views are considered in decision-making, so please don’t hesitate to give us any feedback (good or bad)!

My role also includes ensuring the Guild team and I are here to offer you support and guidance whenever needed. I am very confident in the team and pledge that we will work together in order to make a positive difference for you.

Here in the Guild, we have an open door policy so feel free to pop into our main office with any concerns (or for a chat). The Guild Team are located in our Summer Row office, between 10-4 Monday-Friday!

Feel free to drop me an email or message on Facebook if you have any questions about University College Birmingham.
