Gez, has been elected having collected 1,369 votes out of the 3,255 votes that were cast in the March elections, 200+ votes more than the next candidate, and will be joining UPSU this week. 

Helena Schofield, incoming President, said: 

“We’re delighted to welcome Gez into the Sabbatical team and look forward to using his insights and knowledge as we lead UPSU over the next year. We’re sure his passion, determination and work ethic will complement our skill sets, representing students through the work we will do together.” 

Gez, said: 

“I am over the moon and very excited to be joining UPSU. I hope my experiences from studying here will prove valuable in achieving positive changes to benefit students and their experiences whilst at University.”

Gez’s manifesto points include working alongside the UPSU’s new clothing print shop to make sports kit as competitively priced as possible for students, whilst also looking to improve the quality and appearance of kit. Gez also hopes to increase the provision of the existing sport  ‘give it a go’ scheme, as he looks to enhance student experience through exercise, increasing social opportunities and mental health wellbeing.
