Liam Powell
VP Education and Welfare, Pontypridd


Liam is a History graduate, currently completing his MA (Res) in History. Whilst studying, Liam was the Chair of the Gaming and E-sports society and Co-Chair of the Labour Society. Liam loved his time at USW and is passionate about making sure students get the best deal from the University. 



  • Getting an independent student advisor in the SU to help with welfare issues.
  • Improving transparency and fighting for a better Glyntaff Library. 
  • Bringing free sanitary products to all female toilets in the SU. 



My favourite thing about the SU is that it works so hard for progressive change for our students. Whether that is working with the university to improve its service or whether it is an amazing campaign ran by one of our Council officers.


   Liam is based on the top floor of Treforest Students' Union, drop in and say hello or send a quick message to arrange a meeting!
