Did you know that in 2019 only 56% of the penultimate UG students in the Faculty of Brain Sciences agreed on the following statement: “It is clear how students’ feedback on the course has been acted on.“?
As a faculty rep it would be my responsibility to take an active role in developing and enhancing our faculty’s education. This process shouldn’t happen behind closed doors. You deserve your feedback to be valued and to see which measures are taken to face the issues you raise. I would like to include my knowledge from previous positions of responsibility, including the assessment of student’s satisfaction in my old school, to do so.

Now more than ever, we need to work together to secure a high-quality education. We all have to adjust to this new way of teaching, and we all have different resources available. I do want everyone to have an equal experience and equal chances. So, I would like to be there for you as …
- an easily accessible liaison,
- an inclusive faculty rep, and
- your voice in improving our education.

Let us tackle this 56% and shape our education together.

Hi! My name is Ruoning (Ning) Li and I’m a very enthusiastic, friendly and patient person. Being an International student and having lived and studied in the UK by myself before, I know what it feels like being alone and having so much pressure academically and socially, so I will be the one you can ALWAYS turn to and speak with.
Having looked at the results of UCL undergraduate experience surveys, I noticed that students’ ratings on some aspects are especially low and therefore I will like to promote the following:
-More access to research and real life practicing opportunities for students to apply what they’ve learnt.
-Constructive feedback that arrives timely and the provision of clear marking criteria.
-Establishment of an online anonymous way for students to communicate with Faculty Reps and the Students’ Union to ensure the Union effectively represents students’ academic interests and provide advice on important decision-making.
-Increased accessibility of current mental health support and further development including establishment of online anonymous mental support, to let students feel part of the community of staff and students.
-Increased job and internship opportunities related to students’ specific degrees in brain sciences.
-Any new ideas are welcomed……
I will make sure you are all heard and changes are made :)
Thank you!

For UCL students, this year is unlike any other. In order to provide a satisfactory student experience, we need to prioritise consistent and clear correspondence from faculty to students, as well as an environment that supports their wellbeing whether they’re in London or experiencing UCL from home.

That’s where we step in - we hope by taking on the joint role of faculty representative to unite our community by providing a platform for student voices to be heard, allowing students to regularly give feedback and suggestions and receive clarity on course requirements in an accessible way in a time overwhelmed by digital resources. This would include involving students in important decisions, aiming to represent our diverse student body by regularly assessing student satisfaction, and addressing this with real, substantial change.

Furthermore, during the current climate, we understand the difficulties university students are facing and constantly adapting to. Wellbeing and academic progress directly impact one another. In order to nurture both, we want to encourage access to available mental health resources at UCL.

We are confident in our ability to deliver on our promises using our combined strengths, leadership skills and persevering desire to create the best possible student experience.
