VP Activities and Development - Niall Berry

 

I've just finished my physiotherapy degree and during that time was involved with a number of student activity groups, including serving as President of KCL Muay Thai for two years. I stood in the elections to support well-being, transparency and inclusiveness across the SU, and look forward to working with many of you during my time in office!

 

“Starting uni is an amazing opportunity to take up something new. KCLSU has a huge number of societies and clubs for all kinds of activities and they add so much to your time at uni, so make sure you find a group that fits you and get involved!”

VP Education (Health) - Aless Gibson

 

I'm Aless, your Vice President Education (Health) for this year. This is a challenging time for health students and faculty staff alike, so my priority this year is to ensure you feel heard and valued in conversations with your departments. Communities of any kind, from universities and societies to healthcare teams work better when everyone feels involved, so I hope to open up spaces for conversation and make you confident to be in them!
With two years of medical school under my belt, I know how hard and isolating studying a health subject can be - if you ever have any questions, get in touch!
