Hear about the experience of previous Student Panel Members:
“The skills I learnt or improved upon were more confidence in presenting/ public speaking, organising resources and managing time effectively, but overall, it gave me a lot more confidence and it was great to be a part of it.” - Jack Allen, Student Panel Member
“By being on the Programme Review Panel, I was able to develop my professional speaking skills and my eye for detail and self-confidence. I learned more about how the university functions behind the scenes, and it was a great opportunity to express my opinions in front of various academics – and be taken seriously too.” - Georgina Mackey, Student Panel Member
