Hello everybody! My name is Jura, and I am your postgraduate officer elected for my second term. My job is to ensure that the voices of all PGT and PGR students are heard and valued.
I am originally from Lithuania, but I have lived in 4 different countries and have been settled in the UK for the past 6 years. In Bath, I have studied MRes Politics and International studies and am set to graduate in the winter. I also have 2 dogs - a Maltese named Meta and a Golden Retriever named Oslo. My love for dogs has encouraged me to work with the University to develop an emotional support animal policy!
During the last year, I have worked hard to improve postgraduate student engagement and organized events such as doctoral lunch, doctoral and PGT councils, and even a dog cafe. I collaborated with the staff within the SU and the university and represented PG students on a variety of issues - such as doctoral student experience, PGT education, cost of living, and mental health initiatives. I am looking forward to continuing where we left off and making further progress in the upcoming year.
I am really excited for another year representing YOU! Do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns and ideas or even just for a chat. See you around the SU!
