Rosie Geall

EGIS MP

Hi I’m Rosie and I’ll be your school mp for EGIS this year. I’m really looking forward to starting this year, if you want to get in touch feel free to email me on rg51@hw.ac.uk.

WHAT DO I DO?

I am the School Member of Parliament (School MP) for EGIS - there is one School MP elected by each School (EGIS, EPS, MACS, SoSS & TEX).

As a School MP, I support the Vice President Education and work with them to fix issues faced by students to improve academic life at Heriot-Watt. I meet regularly with School Officers and Class Reps at Academic Congress, and attend School Officer Meetings every other week to drive positive change and feed these issues to Parliament. I also help ensure Academic Congress runs smoothly.

Working closely with Class Reps and School Officers is a really important part of my role. I work to increase the awareness of these positions within your School to make sure students are aware of these structures, how to contact them, and how to get the most out of their School Officers and Class Reps.

In this role I might also attend University Committees and Working Groups.

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF

I'm studying Biological Sciences (Human Health). For the last two years I've volunteered as a Freshers Rep, to help new students settle in to life at HW.

This year, I'm hoping to help ensure social distancing impacts students' learning as little as possible, and that students get the most out of their studies and that courses have fair assessments.

In my new role, I'm really looking forward to being more involved with the Student Union.
