Chiara Menozzi


Welcome to QMU! I’m Chiara and I’m your Student President for 2019/20. My job is to help you make the most of your time at university by making sure that you always receive all the support you need and that your voice is heard at QMU.

But what does a Student President actually do..?

I work closely with the union staff team and the Board of Trustees to manage the Students' Union with the best interests of our students at heart. I also sit on various boards and committees within the university such as Court, Senate and the Student Experience Committee, to make sure that you are fairly represented in the university’s decisions and actions.

How can we make our voices heard..?

There are lots of ways for you to share your thoughts and ideas. You can speak to your Class Reps, your elected Student Officers, and attend our student feedback forums which take place throughout the year. You can also get in touch with me directly by email, on Facebook, or pop up to the SU office anytime, our door is always open!

Welfare Officer -

Hi, I’m Mhairi and I’m a 4th year Theatre & Film student. This is my third year as a student officer and my second year as Welfare Officer. I believe that good support and welfare are vital in making the student experience a positive one, so I plan to spend the year working on various mental health and welfare campaigns in order to raise awareness about issues affecting our students and to help them feel both seen and supported. 

If you have any student welfare related questions or any ideas for campaigns please feel free to send me an email!

G'day! I'm Emily Frood, and I'm currently in my final year of studying Film and Media.

Ricarda Fillhardt

Societies Officer -

My name is Ricarda and I'm a 4th year Theater and Film student. I'm passionate about societies being an opportunity for students to find new passions, pursue old ones, switch off from the stress of uni and make friend.

They are an important part of the QMU student experience and I want to dedicate my year as society officer to improving the longevity. Further I'm planning to create a way for students to find others with the same interests who want to form new societies together.
