About My Role
Tomos represents all students on academic interests to the University and works with the Student Voice team and student academic representatives to review feedback and identify what changes students want.
Tomos lobbies and negotiates with the University to implement any changes that need to be made whether it’s regarding assessment and feedback or developing study spaces.
Hello everyone! Shwmae pawb! 大家好! My name is Tom and I am delighted to be your Vice President Education! My mother is Chinese and my father is Welsh and I spent a lot of my childhood traveling between the two, and so I am very proud to be able to represent those two countries here at Cardiff. If you see me please feel free to come and talk to me in either of those languages, as I could also probably do with the practice!
I am soon to start my third year of Biomed and I love anything to do with science so if you have any interesting science trivia I would love to hear them!! My other interests include singing and playing the piano. I became involved with the students union at the start of my second year in the Give It A go team, as a volunteer, and I could see first-hand how services like Give It A Go can have a huge positive impact on students and their wellbeing. Since then I have thrown myself at any opportunity that the SU has presented, from the freshers’ welcome team to Student Senate to the Scrutiny Committee and more and I have loved every moment of it! I ran for VP Education with the aim of ensuring that every student feels represented and supported and that they have a voice.
If you have any questions or queries I would love to hear from you so don’t hesitate to come to the 3rd floor of the SU or drop me an email!
My main priorities this year are to:
- Streamline student portals
- Increase academic mental health support in schools
- Improve international student support structures
- Working with the University to improve the consistency of the student experience across the university
