President: Alex Sadler
Hi! My name is Alex and I’m AHASoc President this year. I study German, Spanish and IR, which means I know all too well the challenges that triple honours students face. I can also answer any questions you may have about a year abroad in Latin America, as I spent mine in Chile. I look forward to meeting you at one of our events!
Secretary: Becky Jackson
Hi there! I’m Becky, a fifth year French-German student, and this year’s Secretary. I decided to split my year abroad between France and Germany, spending half the year in Aachen and the other half in Bordeaux. I had an unforgettable year that seemed just to fly by in a blur of beer-drinking, Christmas markets, wine tasting and travelling! I’m responsible for keeping all of our members informed about what’s going on so I’m sure you’ll be hearing from me soon!
Treasurer: Katie Capocci
Hi, I’m Katie and I am the Treasurer for this year. I’m in Senior Honours studying French and I spent the last year near Paris as a teaching assistant in a collège. If you have any questions about Paris, France or teaching assistantships please ask 😀
French Rep: Rosie Morton
Hello! I’m Rosie, the French Representative this year. I am studying French and Spanish and have just returned from Montréal, Québec. I worked as an English language assistant for the British Council which proved to be the most wonderful experience: I went skating on frozen rivers, did a spot of whale watching, and got the chance to cheer on Montreal’s ice-hockey team, all while learning the true meaning of “il fait frette icitte” and living the life of Pingu! If anyone has any questions about life abroad or about working for the British Council, please feel free to get in touch.
Canadian Rep: Maddy Hanson
Hi, my name is Maddy and I am the Canadian Rep for 2014-15. I am currently doing at year abroad here at St Andrews, with my home school being Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada. Since I am Canadian, and usually attend university in Canada, feel free to ask me advice about the application process to study abroad, which Canadian universities are the best to study at, how to sort out housing, things you can do for fun while on exchange, etc.
Spanish Rep: William Glashan
Austrian Rep: Hannah Weatherill
Italian Rep: Alberto Micheletti
Hi everyone, I’m Alberto and I’m Italian Rep for this year. I’m a fourth year evolutionary biology student. I’m 100% Italian, born and raised in Milan; I lived and studied in this amazing city all my life before moving to St Andrews, so I definitely know a lot about life in Italy! If you are thinking of studying or working in Italy, please don’t hesitate to ask!
I totally recommend spending some time abroad while at University: I spent the past academic year at the University of Toronto and really loved it. I’m also happy to talk about Canada, if you are thinking of going there.
German Rep: Kathryn Ascroft
Asia Rep: Kate Taylor
I’m a fourth-year biology student from London, though I’ve lived in Germany and the US. I spent second semester of my third year studying at the National University of Singapore. I had fun traveling through South-east Asia!
Russian Rep: Rebecca Cullen
Dutch Rep: Laura Löser
Hi, I’m Laura and this year’s Dutch Rep. I went abroad to Leiden University for two semesters in 2013-2014. I learned Dutch so I could follow the same classes as the Dutch students. If you have any questions about the application process, the unversity or living in the Netherlands, or if you need help understanding some Dutch information, get in touch!
Events Rep: Lauren Bissett
Hi! I’m Lauren, a third year Spanish and Management student. I am just back from spending a year in Madrid working as a language assistant through the British Council. I worked in a primary school in a town in the north of Madrid called San Sebastián de los Reyes, teaching specifically first and second grade students. I had the most amazing year, but I am happy to be back in St Andrews for my last two years!
