Hi, My name is Bustanul Arifin (he/him) and I am running for Postgraduate Student Committee President! As a Curtin postgrad student, I am doing PhD in International Relations within the Faculty of Humanities focusing on international peace and conflict. I have previously completed a master's degree in International Relations in the UK, and a bachelor's degree in International Relations in Indonesia. I have been an experienced professional worker for more than 10 years with a demonstrated history of working in consulting companies, manufacturing companies, educational industry, and social community organisations, in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Involvement in student clubs/organisations is also part of the experiences where I became a leader of student organisations in the UK, Indonesia and Australia. Recently, I am also becoming the President of CIMSA, an Indonesian student club at Curtin.
Those experiences will support my plan to improve student experiences at Curtin, especially for postgraduate students. Many postgraduate students deal with the issues of funding, research experience, study load, and mental health. The university should be made aware of and understand student conditions and be continuously making their experiences better. My goals are to bring new experiences for students, to have HDR policies which are more friendly and consistent for students, and that support them through their challenges and study issues. The postgraduate coursework students also need to have wider opportunities to collaborate with industries, internships and community services. The Guild should be ready to support students when they are facing these challenging circumstances.
