Vice President Education

                                                   Claudia Shaw 

I represent students on all things education related! I sit on a lot of different committees in the University, speaking on your behalf on issues that matter to you - from the Board of Governors to Educational Analytics! I support Programme Reps and Department Reps, empowering them to ensure your Northumbria experience is the best it can be.

What I'm working on

Academic Societies

Working with Lauren, your VP Activities, to increase the number of Academic Societies on campus. They’re there to build a community on your course, give you the chance to build and develop your network, represent you and have a laugh whilst at uni! Interested in setting one up? Message me!

Rep Conference Planning

Rep Conference 2020 (previously called Education Conference) is coming soon to an SU near you! There’s going to be training, workshops, opportunities for you to get involved AND competitions! For more information, follow NSU Education.

Extensions Reform

Working with the library and Ask4Help Teams to consider PECs, LA’s and Extensions and how they work for all students. I’m currently looking into what other universities do, but your feedback is vital! So message me with your thoughts!

What I've got coming up

Freshers’ 2020

We’ve got loads planned for you this year, socially distant of course! And, sadly, it’s my last ever NSU Freshers, although 5 years is probably enough… Have a look at what’s coming up on

SU Leaders Training

Training our wonderful Lead Volunteers so they can represent you! You can find out who they are here, and look out for their updates on what they’re up to!

NSU Board of Trustees

It’s the first Board meeting for this Academic Year and this is where we consider the strategy of the Students’ Union, ensure that we are financially sound and are complying with the law. To find out more click here!
