01248 388001

Mark Barrow graduated with a History with Journalism degree in 2018, and was Undeb Bangor’s Vice President for Education during the 2018=19 academic year. He has now been elected to serve as your President.

During his time as a student, Mark actively got involved in many different University and Students’ Union roles and activities. He was a Course Rep for three years, and during that time he organised two student-led trips, to Berlin and Krakow, and Prague. Mark’s work as a Course Rep saw him win the prestigious Ede and Ravenscroft award, in 2017. Mark also represented the University as an Open Day assistant, besides becoming a member of the ‘Bangor Fund’ Telethon team.

During his time as your VP for Education, Mark led on many different Student Union campaigns and activities. He set up the No Grey Area campaign, which attempts to raise awareness of the issues of sexual harassment and assault at University campuses, and to highlight that any student can receive appropriate support from within the University. He also set up a house reviewing platform, called Marks Out Of Tenancy, so that students have a reliable place to review their student property. Mark also worked with students, particularly Course Reps, in responding to the University’s restructuring process, and reformed ‘Course Rep Council’ to make it a more discussion-focused and relevant forum.

As President, Mark will be continuing to make sure that you are being listened to. He will continue with some of the campaigns that he has already been working on, such as No Grey Area and a ‘Don’t Panic’ housing campaign. He will be setting up Undeb Bangor’s Job Shop, so that any student is aware of where to find part-time work, and extra money, whilst studying in Bangor. He will be trying to make ‘sustainability’, and ‘employability’, embedded into Student Union activities, and is the main point of contact between the student body, local community and Bangor University.

For more information, you can contact Mark at, by giving him a ring on 01248 388001, or by calling into the Students’ Union. He is happy to meet with any student, to ensure that you are being heard!

Muhammad Firdaus - VP Societies and Volunteering

Muhammad Firdaus is a recent graduate from the School of Languages, Literatures & Linguistics. He has been elected to serve as your Vice President for Societies & Volunteering.

A mature international student from Singapore, Muhammad has served as Chair of the International Students Society, Chair of the Writers’ Guild Society, Station Manager of the Storm FM student radio station, Captain of the Jujitsu Club and was active in the Islamic Society, representing Muslim students at interfaith events.

As Vice President for Societies & Volunteering, Muhammad intends to focus on raising awareness for Undeb Bangor’s Volunteering Projects, encourage Societies to become self-sufficient and promote sustainable growth, develop student media societies so all student groups can take advantage of those avenues of communication, and increase and improve representation for student minority groups, particularly International and Liberation (LGBT+, BAME, Disabled, Trans & Women) groups, within Undeb Bangor Student’s Union. He wholeheartedly supports the UMCB Welsh Union’s aims at raising awareness of Welsh language and culture within the student body, and takes pride on being truly ‘International’.

Muhammad also believes very strongly that lasting change of any sort must come from the ground up with the support of the student body, and will take time to happen, and prefers a collaborative approach and networking directly with students to establish systems that will eventually bring that change about.
