Senior SLAs are experienced returning SLAs who are there to mentor and support SLAs and students. They assist with the organising of the SLA scheme within their various areas of study and programmes. They attend regular meetings with the PAL Team, other Senior SLAs and academic coordinators to discuss and maintain the SLA Scheme.
Senior SLAs also manage PAL based projects, assist with observations and probation, assist with publicity and design, organise events, assist with administration, and liaise with different MDX Services to build collaborative working partnerships.

Hi there! My name is Vitoria and I am 2nd Year Biomedical Student.|
I thrive while helping others so being a SLA was a dream come true.
Every year, the highlights of being part of SLA scheme is seeing students that I have helped progress. It makes me feel extremely proud of what we trying to accomplish here with the SLA Scheme at MDX. As a senior this year, I want to help the scheme to go further and beyond the expectations.
|Hi! I'm Anna and I study LLB law. I joined Student Learning Assistant team in my 2nd year of studies, when I became Public law SLA. I loved the idea of student to student help and I was really happy to be able to support my younger colleagues who needed it. This year I was honoured to be Senior SLA (as well as EU law SLA). Being even more involved in the development of the SLA scheme and mentoring SLAs gives me satisfaction and makes me proud of being the Middlesex University student. Senior SLA job is definitely one of the best things that happened to me during my studies and I recommend it to any ambitious students who are willing to do more than just studying.|

I feel honoured that I am able to be a Senior SLA and help improve the scheme.|
