I graduated from Plymouth University in September 2011 with a 2:1 in Multimedia Production and Technology. I chose this degree because of my interest in finding innovative and creative methods to tackle existing problems and to ultimately fill voids in the vastly diverse market of today. Studying this degree has enabled me to decipher clients' desires with originality and innovation. This is demonstrated throughout my three-year period studying at university alongside the scope, and content of projects and campaigns I have run both as a sabbatical officer and at OMD.

Mobile Student Union

The campaign that has, without doubt, left the biggest imprint on both the University and the Student Union during my employment is the arrival of the 'Mobile Student Union'. Over a third of our students currently study off campus. I wrote a paper to secure funding that would allow the purchasing of a vehicle that could act as a mobile UPSU to those students who can't take advantage of the services and opportunities available at the main campus; dispelling the myth that a student union has to be made from bricks. The scheme was piloted over the months of September and October via the funding granted to me. It has been a huge success. Current figures show the use of our services and general knowledge of the UPSU among off campus student are higher than they have ever been. The idea has received national recognition and was shortlisted for the NUS 'Entrepreneur Awards'. I am confident the 'Mobile Student Union' will continue to be a permanent fixture at UPSU.

'Given the extensive reach of its regional partnership network, Plymouth University works hard to maintain communication and dialogue with those key stakeholders. The effective working of the Students' Union is essential in this regard; helping the university ensure the student voice is at the heart of its decision-making. The recent work of the 'mobile student union' creates a visible presence for student representatives on their visits to partner college campuses. It acts as a focal point for those local students as well as providing an instant 'mobile office' for establishing initial contact. I fully support any initiative which would enable the Plymouth Students' Union to provide this facility on a more permanent basis.' 
- Professor David Coslett, Deputy Vice Chancellor Plymouth University
