President Student Experience

This position represents all Falmouth University and University of Exeter (Cornwall Campuses) students, with a focus on student experience issues.
Ellie Ricks, SU President Student Experience


Hi, I’m Ellie and I’m the SU President Student Experience! This means that I represent students from both Falmouth and Exeter University on everything that isn’t academic, like sustainability, facilities, events, sports, societies, volunteering, and fundraising. Before being elected I tried to get involved with the SU as much as I could, whether that be through becoming an officer in the Student Council, a course rep for Creative Events Management, or as a Student Trustee. I’ve made so many great friends throughout it all and I’m so happy I get to be in Falmouth for another year!

I couldn’t be more excited to step into the role of Student Experience President and start implementing my manifesto. With the COVID-19 pandemic finally winding down I am hoping to return the fun and excitement back to the university experience! Want to help out? Why not get involved? Send across any ideas, feedback or questions you may have and let’s make this year the best yet!

- Ellie Ricks (She/Her)

    Despite Covid, longer term plans continue to be made and the Cornwall Sports Strategy is progressing behind the scenes, and I'm so excited to share more details of this with clubs later in the year.

As well as my three key priorities, I’ve also been working on union development, specifically working with the Student Voice Team to shape the Student Council for this academic year in advance of elections. Nominations will open on October 1 and you can find out more about them here.
