Catherine Dawson

Education Officer

Hi there! My name is Catherine Dawson, and I’m your Education Officer for the coming academic year.

The bulk of my job can be broken down into two parts – firstly, working with students to help them with any issues they may have, from figuring out how to find your timetable, to discussing your options if you are to fail or miss an exam, then secondly representing students on a number of committees, trying to make sure that students are getting the best quality out of their education.

I do a lot of work with Class Reps as well by working with the College Reps to organise Class Rep Elections and then support Class Reps however I can once they are elected. If your class doesn’t have a rep feel free to email me about it (education@uccsu.ie) and we’ll organise an election ASAP.

If you see me around main campus or one of our satellite campuses feel free to stop and ask me anything, or else call into my office which is always open to you (if I’m not in, I leave office hours on my door of when I should be in the office for the day).

Enjoy your year, and make the most of it because it flies!
