You Are More Than… January 2016

Your degree. Your thesis. Your portfolio. Your placement. Whoever you are, whatever you’re studying, we’re here for you.

 

Our programme of activities for January has now finished, so we’re going to be taking a good look at what went well and what we can improve for You Are More Than’s return in the summer! Let us know your feedback, ideas or suggestions  through You Make Change.

Find out what is happening during May/June 2016 here

January can be a stressful time with exams, assessments and placements looming. Throughout the month we’ve planned a series of events and activities to help you out – whether you want to brush up on your study skills, do something active or take a few minutes out to relax. You can find the entire schedule through to the end of January below, or look at our weekly updates throughout the month.

This year we’ve put on activities and events that reach out to more people at the University than ever before. This means we’re doing things at Winchester School of Art, Southampton General Hospital, Avenue Campus, National Oceanography Centre as well as things specifically for Postgraduate Researchers. This comes from your feedback and what your elected representatives have told us. It’s a work in progress, so let us know what you think about this new approach!

We’re trying out some new things this year to make sure we’re supporting you wherever and whatever you study. From postgrads to people studying at different sites, students living in halls to those who don’t have exams at all – we want to hear your feedback on the things we’re running. If you have any comments, suggestions or ideas please get in touch with me (vpwelfare@susu.org) or VP Education Shruti Verma (vpeducation@susu.org). As part of our Vision 2020 strategic plan for the Students’ Union we want to reach out to more students than ever before. We hope this is a great first step in that direction!
