Graduate Officer election to be contested between Hazel Beattie and Sharath Chandra


Uncontested in last year’s election, two candidates have been confirmed for this year’s Graduate Officer election.


Hazel Beattie
Course: Higher Diploma in Social Policy
Experience: Class Rep

“This year I sat on the Student Council and I felt that there was a disconnect between the Council and postgraduate students. I want to increase engagement between postgrads and the Union and build a sense of community among postgrads.”




Sharath Chandra 
Course: Research Master’s, Mechanical Engineering
Experience: Class Rep

“I personally know a lot of graduate students who have issues that need to be dealt with. Anabel (Castaneda, current Graduate Officer) has a done very good job, but there are other issues I can handle on a more personal level.”
