Every student at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry is a member of the Barts and The London Student Association (BLSA). We are a student-led organisation that is here to represent, support and provide opportunities for you throughout your time here at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry (BLSMD).
BLSA is led by students who are elected every year and supported by staff. It is led by the Student President, who is supported in their role by a whole range of representatives who sit on the BLSA Board. We are a division of Queen Mary University of London Students' Union (QMSU) who represent students across all of Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
Tom Longbottom, BLSA President
My name is Tom Longbottom, and I am the President of Barts and The London Students’ Association (BLSA). As your President, I represent all BL students, and help our student groups be as successful as possible. I also have to make the BLSA Building, The Griff Inn (Union Bar & Kitchen) and its events as enjoyable and popular as possible. A mammoth task, but I am fortunate to have the support of the incredibly devoted individuals who make up the BLSA Board.
