Uncontested in last year’s election, two candidates have been confirmed for this year’s Graduate Officer election.



Hazel Beattie
Course: Higher Diploma in Social Policy
Experience: Class Rep

“This year I sat on the Student Council and I felt that there was a disconnect between the Council and postgraduate students. I want to increase engagement between postgrads and the Union and build a sense of community among postgrads.”





Sharath Chandra 
Course: Research Master’s, Mechanical Engineering
Experience: Class Rep

“I personally know a lot of graduate students who have issues that need to be dealt with. Anabel (Castaneda, current Graduate Officer) has a done very good job, but there are other issues I can handle on a more personal level.”
