Background

In order to make the Student Section more impactful, and improve the communication channels between the Society, the Student Section, the University Ambassadors, and student members, we have created specific roles for Student Section Members and are beginning to establish a network of Student Ambassadors.  With this and the work going on to recruit new University Ambassadors (lecturer), our focus is to create a real student member community in order to more effectively support you, your education, and your career.  A diagram to illustrate the new communication pathways is illustrated below.

What are the benefits of being in the Student Section? See here.

 

Rachel Moon, former Member of the Student Section 2019-2021, Nutrition Futures Representative

"The Student Section is open to any student at any degree level from undergraduate to PhD students. Any nutrition student should really consider applying to be in the student section as it is a great opportunity to build on and learn skills that can take you through life.  It gives you something alongside your degree to add to your CV that is really recognisable and gives you great connections.  The Society is really supportive of students and helps us along the way no matter our degree level, therefore I really encourage anyone to apply.

Being part of the Student Section has been a great experience and so rewarding in many ways. I have been the Nutrition Futures Representative since September 2019 and joined as an undergraduate student. As a direct result of this, I have gained some important life skills and made some good relationships. We have achieved a lot over the last 2 years from producing the most attended Nutrition Futures Conference ever, producing newsletters, and running specific student events including careers events. Working with individuals to organise these has been excellent for improving my teamwork and leadership skills and I even had the opportunity to close the Nutrition Futures Conference, which helped a lot with my public speaking skills. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of a team with like-minded individuals, all at different stages of their university careers and building relationships with the Nutrition Society staff. Getting the opportunity to see how the Nutrition Society works firsthand and getting a chance to visit the offices have been invaluable experiences. Despite Covid-19 making it hard to meet face to face this year, regular student section meetings have been engaging and allowed us all to carry on planning for future events.

The Student Section is open to any student at any degree level from undergraduate to PhD students. Any nutrition student should really consider applying to be in the student section as it is a great opportunity to build on and learn skills that can take you through life.  It gives you something alongside your degree to add to your CV that is really recognisable and gives you great connections.  The Society is really supportive of students and helps us along the way no matter our degree level, therefore I really encourage anyone to apply."
