John-Paul is a third year BA (Hons) Journalism student at the University of Lincoln, specialising in Radio and Print.

Since the start of his studies, John-Paul has been an active and engaged member of the University community.

Within the first month, John-Paul was elected Level One Course Representative on the BA (Hons) Journalism programme by fellow students and became an ambassador for the programme at Open Days and Applicant Days, talking and working with prospective students and their parents about the programme, the University and the city.

Since then, John-Paul was elected in 2014 as the School of Journalism (later School of English and Journalism) Representative for the 2014/15 academic year in the University of Lincoln Students’ Union where he represented students across eight undergraduate and many more postgraduate programmes through different projects and activities which actively promoted the student voice.

Currently the College of Arts Officer for the 2015/16 academic year in the Students’ Union, John-Paul guides and supports five School Reps, representing nearly 3,900 students in the college on committees and in the wider University community as well as working on projects to improve the student experience.

Alongside his studies as well, John-Paul is currently taking part in the University’s Staff Student Insight Scheme which sees him partnered with the Director of the Educational Development and Enhancement Unit (EDEU). This opportunity will give him insight into the work of EDEU and how it is run but also to give a student perspective on the unit’s work.

In June 2016, John-Paul will take office as Vice-President Academic Affairs within the University of Lincoln Students Union, following successful election in February this year.

Outside of student voice wrork, John-Paul is also the Online and Technical Manager at Siren FM, Lincoln’s first community radio station and has undertaken a placement at BBC Radio Lincolnshire as a Broadcast Assistant.
