Name: Ali Tariq Khan
Running for: Merchiston Campus Officer
Course: Msc Computing with Professional Placement
Why I’m standing?
Academia is more than just learning, its passion.
I have seen firsthand devasting effects that the lack of support can have on students, I feel passionately about knocking down the barriers that are too often stopping students achieving their aspirations.
As a student, I personally dealt with number of different hurdles, from extenuating circumstances to lack of resources. I was lucky to have exceptional advice and guidance throughout, however this is not the case for all the students, who are frequently letting down. I will work to ensure all students have constant support and direction
Elect me and you will see your education and your voice at very center of everything I do; because students are name not numbers.
