I think gender specific titles make some students unconfortable and their practicality is questionable. I suggest we should remove gender specific titles (eg. Mr, Mrs, Ms etc.) from student cards, and include full first names.
Post uni, in the 'real world' you are going to have to get used to using titles, university isnt somewhere you go to be cuddled and get offended at a 2 or 3 letter word. Lecturers have titles, whether mr/miss/prof/dr its something you just have to get over. No offense
If it's not hurting people to get rid of the title, and it is hurting some people to have it, then what's the problem with getting rid of them? No issue here and will make trans and non-binary students feel more comfortable. Completely agree with this X
It would be at least good to have the option to have no title included, so if people want to have it included they can, and if it makes them uncomfortable they can choose to have no title on the student card.
I agree having an option to not have a title on your card, but remember, its just a card. I think people need to understand that university is (or should be) a professional environment, the use of titles will always be used in working environments and if this is your biggest worry or complaint about university, then I honestly envy you.
Why is NUS printed on the card? I do not want to be associated with the terrible organization, that is the National Union of Students. perhaps we should remove that?
In the real world you'd be laughed at if you were upset over a title. Perhaps take the time you're in university to get used to it?
Surely there’s bigger issues like the vice chancellors pay packet to be worried about, no?
Can we please stop with this purity war of victimhood it's really starting to get on my wick.

@VP Education, What are your actual views on this?
