Hey, I am Sajjad Hossain, your Vice President: Education. South Bank is a community, a community of Students and Staff, University and Students’ Union, who can only move forward through teamwork and dedication. I will work tirelessly to make sure that each and every student has a voice at LSBU, be they in Southwark, Havering or part of the wider “family”. I will ensure a working lecture capture system is in learning spaces across campus. I will work with the University to bring a real solution for timetabling problems that works for all.
Another key area I will be focussing on hidden course costs. Hidden course costs can mean anything from unexpected professional association joining fees to costly materials. These “hidden” costs also impact those students out on placement who have to find additional money to travel to their placements or those students who may struggle to raise the funds for key trips. Anonymous marking will also play a part in my work. I am aiming for anonymous marking to become standard for all written assessments ensuring our students are being marked fairly and impartially. Continuing on the theme of feedback, I am passionate about more detailed and useful feedback across the 7 schools. My aim this year is to improve the quality of the feedback for students studying a London South Bank University course.
