Union Update

Hi everyone,

I hope you’re all keeping warm in the characteristically unpredictable British spring weather.

It’s been a hugely successful spring term for everyone at ICSM, so well done and thank you to you all on your magnificent contributions!

Congratulations to the newly elected ICSMSU for 2013-14! I hope everyone enjoyed the candidates’ campaigns – I definitely enjoyed some of the videos, which were superb!

Well done also to everyone who competed during Varsity earlier this month, and thank you to everyone who went along to support ICSM!

As I hope many of you are aware, we staged a protest against BUCS on Thursday 21st March, collectively with the other London medical schools and Cardiff University. I’d like to thank each and every one of you that turned up to support this hugely important cause – it’s great to see that we had so much support.

To those of you lucky enough to have an Easter break, I hope you make the most of it, and for everyone with impending exams, I wish you all the very best of luck with these!

Happy Easter!
