The Postgraduate Students’ Senate Convenor leads the Postgraduate Students’ Senate, an assembly that represents the views, interests, and needs of all postgraduate students at the University.
The Postgraduate Convenor drives the identification of issues that affect the education, educational and extra-curricular experiences of postgraduate students. The Postgraduate Convenor also ensures the Senate genuinely captures and represents the voice of all postgraduate students at the University. The Postgraduate Convenor leads campaigns on all relevant issues and supports the advocacy of postgraduate students and their concerns.
In addition to the overarching functions of the Senate, it is the Convenor’s responsibility to monitor and support the Senate Representatives.
The Postgraduate Convenor works closely with the President, UNSA staff, and the other members of the Executive to achieve these responsibilities.
Hi, my name is Feisal Masmali and I’m your Postgraduate Convenor at UNSA. As your representative, I’m here to help you and I’m so excited about working with a great team at UNSA.
I’m a PhD student in my third year of the postgraduate program. I transferred to Newcastle in early 2021 after spending two years in Melbourne, VIC. As a postgraduate student, I’m excited about making a substantial contribution and providing an enriching experience.
When I’m not studying, I like to go camping and enjoy country sightseeing. I like spend time with family and friends, hanging out, and experiencing different cultural foods. I also enjoy cooking a lot.
It would be awesome to know all of your worries and thoughts. This year, I want to truly get to know other students. Should you ever need me, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I’m here for you.
