27 September 2022

 

Teesside University Students’ Union is proud to welcome three new Student Officers who will work to amplify the student voice and further improve the university experience.

For the first time, all three Student Officers are international students which reflects Teesside’s position as a global institution, and they will play a key role in shaping our diverse university community.

The three new Student Officers are Eby Eldho (President Education), Nigil Narayanan Thathron (President Activities) and Femi Abolade (President Welfare).

Their job is to represent students on the issues that matter to them and ensure students are supported and get the best possible experience from university.

The Student Officers were chosen by their fellow students and took office in July 2022.

Teesside is an international university with a global network of partnerships, working with universities across Europe and beyond, including institutions in China, India, and Malaysia.

I want to ensure students get the best out of the campus experience.
