Hidden Course Costs Campaign
I put forward a motion at Executive Council concerning hidden course costs that you may not have been aware of before you arrived at University. I'm happy to announce that the motion was successfully passed and I'm getting to work right away!
On Monday 25 November, I’m hosting a big campaign day which I need your involvement with. I want to find out directly from students at York St John University about the course costs that impact you – especially the ones that you were not anticipating. I need student backing and involvement to ensure the University listens to me, so throughout the day there will be various ways to support my campaign. Whether you add your thoughts to a feedback box or attend the Student Education Zone, your involvement will make a difference!
Feedback boxes will be situated in De Grey, Holgate, the Students' Union and the library. I want your input on topics such as resources and materials, placements, university trips and travel and graduation. There will also be a survey live on the Students' Union website – please fill this in to help me obtain crucial information to pass on to the University!
Lastly, I've arranged for mirrors to be dotted about around the campus for you to take a pic in and join the movement! You can show your support on social media, using the hashtag #BeTransparent.
1:30pm, Students' Union Coffee Lounge – I will be chairing a panel on hidden course costs featuring a number of University staff, students and the Vice President (Higher Education) of the National Union of Students, Claire Sosienski Smith. Join the Facebook event here.
4-6pm, Fountains 002 (FT/002) – I will be hosting a Student Education Zone surrounding hidden course costs. This will be my second Zone and will close the Hidden Course Cost Campaign with any additional feedback. This will be facilitated through discussion and also Mentimeter, so if you can’t be there you can join in on giving feedback too! Join the Facebook event here.
