Bangor Students' Union to please create an International Officer Role within its SAB team

This petition had 69 supporters

Research shows that most Universities in the UK have an International Officer Role within their Students’ Union; however, this is not the case for Bangor University.

While several attempts to make the Union see the importance of this Role has been made in the past, the Union continues to ignore this request on the grounds of lack of funds.

This is very sad, considering the number of international students studying at Bangor University and the income they generate for the University. Once again, within the University/Union, international students have become the proverbial CASH COWS;  always giving, never getting.

While the union may argue that international students are represented within its council (i.e. via the former international student welfare senator role, now the International Students Undeb Bangor Councillor), this international representative, in most cases report to the sabbatical officers who may or may not passionately represent the views of international students.

The international community is of the opinion that having an International Student Sabbatical Officer would be more advantageous than just a "Sub-Rep" with lesser powers and rights. It would also improve the chances of an international student being elected into a sabbatical role (research shows that till date, no international student has ever been elected to Sabbatical Role). And lastly, but most importantly, it will allow for an international Officer to focus/ ensure a safe/welcoming environment for all international students and ensure that the needs of international are represented within the Students' Union
