SGUL Student Minds - Committee Positions
 
SGUL Student Minds the St George’s branch of the UK mental wellbeing charity (http://www.studentminds.org.uk) and one of over thirty student groups nationally. We aim to raise awareness of mental health problems, challenge discrimination, host discussions, information days and organise campaigns to stimulate positive change, as well as encouraging students to care for their own mental wellbeing and provide signposting to students who may otherwise be reluctant to seek help or unaware of the type or nature of resources available here at St George’s. 
Please get in touch if you’re interested in making a difference with us - email m0900227@sgul.ac.uk or m1000113@sgul.ac.uk to find out more.
At the moment are particularly looking for a Technical Officer and someone to run social media promotion, and can offer other positions, as well as having informal ‘open-to-all’ meetings to raise ideas with anyone who is interested or wants to voice their thoughts :)
 
First year medic Tom Galliano got the chance to experience what it might be like in a real disaster emergency when he appeared on the BBC's One Show.

He was a volunteer extra for London Fire Brigade's trauma training exercise which involved emergency services responding to a fictional plane crash.

The result was filmed for The One Show and was featured on the London Fire Brigade's Facebook page here.

John said he is part of a number of student societies and got involved with the emergency exercise after hearing through the Pre-Hospital Care Society that London Fire Brigade were looking for some volunteers.

He said: "I had no idea that the event would be on such a huge scale with so many hundreds of people, make-up, fires and helicopters it was like being on a film set.

"During our studies, we obviously learn a lot about medicine and the NHS but there is less opportunity to find out how the police, fire brigade and NHS work together when major events happen so it was a real eye opener for me."

The One Show episode can be seen here: The One Show

Hi,

I’m launching a new fashion website this summer called fashionarta.com 
and would like to give the students at your university a chance to write 
for the website. The website is aimed mostly at a female audience and 
will have a large number of areas for writers to contribute to, 
including:

- Trends
- Opinion & Views
- Fashion Q&A
- Hair & Beauty
- Blogs, video blogs, etc.
- Food & Drink
- Travel
- Lifestyle

Initially, writers will not be paid for their contributions but those 
who prove to be consistently popular may have an opportunity to be paid 
per word in the future.

Writing for fashionarta.com will be a great way for your students to 
practise their magazine writing skills and gain an audience for their 
work.

For those who are interested, please send an email with a sample article 
of 300 – 1000 words to editor@fashionarta.com. The article can be on 
any topic and feel free to use one of the above areas as inspiration.  
Please note, this sample article will not be published and you will not 
be paid for writing it.

Writers whose work is suitable will be contacted in due course to work 
through the necessary administrative details and general terms & 
conditions to have their work published on fashionarta.com.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

My name is Nicoletta Fossati. I am a consultant at St George's with an honorary role at SGUL.
 
I am completing an MA at the Institute of Education and looking at the data on professionalism for the new cohorts of students who are being/have been taught with the new curriculum, which includes the professionalism domain. I would be keen to organise some one-to-one interviews (30-40 mins tops) around the professionalism domain. The aim of the interviews is to explore what you think professionalism is, how this is being taught and assessed at SGUL and from your experience what the lessons are that SGUL could learn about it. The project has been ethically approved by Professors Pat Hughes and Andy Kent. Participation is entirely voluntary; the interview transcripts constitute confidential material, will be stored securely and results and citations will be anonymised when data are divulged.
 
If you are interested in taking part, please email me at
 
 
With many thanks in anticipation,
 
Nicoletta Fossati

The Beginning of the End for Cold and Draughty Student Accommodation

The UK’s housing stock is one of the worst in Europe. UK homes are generally older, smaller, colder and less energy efficient than those of our neighbours on the continent; and the people who are probably more familiar with this than anyone else, is London’s student population.

 

Private student accommodation in the capital is well known for its leaky radiators, cold showers, draughty windows, mouldy walls and sky high heating bills. Recently, it has been highlighted that living in these conditions is having a detrimental effect on the welfare of students. A study by Dreamland found that half of all students fall ill due to living in cold housing and Lancaster University SU revealed that the UK’s student population is being driven into ‘fuel poverty’ with the average student spending £527 a year on energy.

Further to this, the NUS have revealed in the ‘Homes Fit for Study’ survey that 52% of respondents living in private student accommodation had felt uncomfortably cold in their accommodation, 48%  perceived their accommodation to have poor insulation or be draughty, 66% of respondents had worn more than one layer of clothing to go to bed in order to keep warm, 47% had mould, 41% had damp, and 40% of students had stayed in university buildings longer than they would have done otherwise in order to avoid going back to their cold home.

 

However, the outlook for the student housing market is looking bright. From 2016, any tenant or their representatives asking for their landlord’s consent to make reasonable energy efficiency improvements cannot be refused. And, from April 2018, the Government is proposing that the rental of the very worst performing properties—those rated F and G—will be banned through a minimum energy efficiency standard.

 

These forthcoming changes, hopefully, mark the beginning of the end for cold and draughty student accommodation - and high energy bills.  And, in the interim, help is available to students today in the shape of a not-for- profit social enterprise called Energise London CIC.   

 

Energise London helps Londoners reduce their energy bills and make homes warmer places to live. By talking with your landlord they can arrange home assessments, surveys, funding and installation of energy saving measures such as insulation, glazing, new heating boilers and draught-proofing.

 

If you want to save money on your heating bill and feel your student flat could benefit from energy saving measures call Tom Ashdown at Energise London on 020 8370 0270 or email tom@energiselondon.org.uk.  Please also see their website, www.energiselondon.org.uk for information on their activities.

 

 

 

   

Hi there,

We are a group of medical students who have recently launched a new website, MedicalBookReviews.co.uk. We are writing to ask for your students’ help in expanding this free resource, by submitting book reviews to us for publication.

  • Thanks to sponsorship from medical publishers, we are delighted to be able to award a £25 Amazon Voucher each month to the student with the best review.
  • Each student who submits a review to us will receive a certificate of their reviewer status to add to their CV / Portfolio
  • At present we are asking students to review textbooks they have already used as part of their studies. However, we are in the process of partnering with major publishers to be able to provide students with review copies of newly published books (which they would be able to keep), or review proposals for upcoming titles in the future.
