“Being a Course Rep and working in partnership with staff, my course mates and the Students’ Union has allowed me to make positive changes to my course.”
Physics Course Rep, Josh Barkby, has helped to secure an important software licence for all the students on his course.
The software, called LabView, is a system design platform that’s widely used by Physics students and is now available to download on NTU students’ personal computers for free.
Previously, the software could only be accessed at the University during opening hours so this is a huge achievement that will go a long way towards supporting independent, flexible study.
Josh, who led the campaign for the software license as part of his commitment as an NTSU Course Rep said:
“Leading this campaign has been incredibly rewarding, I have gained many valuable skills ranging from campaigning and communication to improving my professional acumen while working with Staff and Academics.Being a Course Rep and working in partnership with staff, my course mates and the Students’ Union has allowed me to make positive changes to my course while encouraging similar issues within other courses to be raised as well. This will benefit both current and future students studying here at NTU. My role as a Rep has really allowed me to see first-hand that staff really do listen. Whether it’s positive or negative feedback, they take everything on board and are dedicated to improving the student experience.”
