Hello!! I’m Jacob you SU Education Officer. For any academic issues, suggestions or just for a chat, contact me!

Over the past 4 years, I have been studying Physics with a much-needed placement year at GSK doing Biophysics where I looked at the structure and binding of proteins to compounds. However, without getting involved in the SU I would have struggled to finish my degree.

I have been an academic rep where I thoroughly enjoyed solving issues my cohort faced. I was chair of TEDx so I love a TED talk and in my final year I was a faculty rep and Politics & Activism lead (I would happily chat with you for hours about politics).

I’m from Worcestershire so of course, I love the sauce and the countryside. You can find me most weekends on a walk, I’m always eager to find new ones (If you have any recommendations let me know!). Either that or I’m ticking off National Trust places around the area.

I love learning about new things and hearing people’s views on all sorts of topics as I have way too many interests such as politics, engineering, science, and management.

The next year is an exciting time where we can shape our learning experience to suit our needs so, if things aren’t working for you, contact your academic rep or me to see what we can do! I have a passion for making our learning experience the best it can be and ensuring it works for everyone.
