Third Student Voice Conference April 2015

The third and final Student Voice Conference of 2014/15 was held in MDX House on Thursday 16th April, with school meetings taking place separately in the days leading up to the conference. It was held alongside the AGM, when financial and progress reports for the year are given by the MDXSU team.

The following policies were passed:

  • Middlesex University should provide language classes for students, staff and the wider community. The languages provided would be based on demand. It would begin as an extra-curricularactivity, but in the long run could potentially become an optional module.
  • The University should create more links with companies to provide students with better networking opportunities. This could be done by hosting formal events in the Quad for all students, or introducing open days for students to gain further industry connections so that they are able to progress further in their chosen career paths.
  • There should be no exams in April; all exams should be in May, to avoid clashing with coursework deadlines, so that there is adequate space for students to revise.
  • There should be an end of year party open to all students.
