SU President Exeter

Connie Chilcott

I’m Connie, your President Exeter for 23/24, I’m a spirited person who loves the ocean and you’ll often find me on the beach or in the sea! My background is centred around community organising and collaboration, I strongly believe that meaning can be found within our relationships with others. This belief has made me an empathetic person with a drive to create change in our communities. I find the ocean to be a magical and calming place, it rejuvenates me and allows me to decompress - something that’s necessary in our busy lives! I enjoy spending time surrounded by loved ones, usually sharing a home-cooked meal or laughing in nature; these relationships sustain and nourish me. With a care for our Earth and all inhabitants, I hope to encourage and uplift our diverse community to thrive and generate change.

Student Voice Coordinator (Exeter)

Charlie Atkinson

Hello! My name is Charlie and my role within the Student Voice team here at The SU is to work with our Exeter University students and representatives to support them to create positive change throughout their studies down in Cornwall! When I’m not here, I live on the other side of the Tamar in Plymouth. You can usually find me enjoying a craft beer, especially in the sun! Before joining the SU team, I was a Sabbatical Officer for the Students’ Union at Plymouth University, and before that I completed my Masters in Archival Practice!

Your Truro Student Support Officer - Ruby Coleman

Hi, my name’s Ruby Coleman and I’m the Student Support Officer for all BMBS students based on Truro Campus! I support students with anything non-academic, so if there’s anything impacting or worrying you at the moment, please get in touch and we can arrange a Student Support Consultation. Your consultation enables you to have a chat about what’s been going on for you, consider the type of support you might find helpful, and together we can collaborate a support plan for you. When I’m not working, I really enjoy climbing/bouldering, but I’m afraid of heights, so I usually get stuck at the top and can’t get down!!! If you’d like to get in touch for an appointment, please email ask for an appointment with me and pop in the subject line that you’re a Truro BMBS student.

BMBS Cornwall Student Experience Lead - Hannah Partington

Hello everyone! I’m Hannah, and my role is to work with you and my colleagues to make the student experience here in Cornwall an inclusive, supportive, enjoyable and fun one for everyone, no matter what your vibe is. From how to get your voice heard, to what you do in your down time, I’ll be liaising closely with your Programme Reps, MedSoc committee and other student representatives to improve, develop and make change happen. I’ve lived in Cornwall for 20+ years after moving down to attend Falmouth College of Arts (now University); palm trees, beaches, stunning scenery… I was sold! Outside of work, I love playing and watching sport, being out and about with my family and our wonderful dog, and making and eating cake. I’m always keen to hear from individual students directly too, so don’t be shy, drop me an email with any thoughts, concerns, ideas, or just if you fancy a chat and a slice of cake (have I mentioned I love cake???) at

Have a wonderful time in Cornwall.
