My Biography

My name is Nurilyana Sofiya binti Izam and I am 19 years old. I am currently taking the computing route in the Foundation in Science Programme.

My Manifesto

  • Integrate my experiences and my principles to empower students to reach their full potential and lead the academic department to success

  • Commit to maintaining and elevating the standard of academic excellence at Heriot-Watt University

  • Champion student representation and advocate for the amplification of student voices in decision-making processes

What motivated me to nominate myself?

My experience as MFP Officer was definitely an inspiration to nominate myself because being in the academic department meant I got to see how impactful we could be to the student body.

My top three priorities

  1. Advocate for the students regarding their academic experience

  2. Ensure the students are able to access the resources they need and deserve to support their academic performance and reach their full potential as students.

  3. Overall increase the academic excellence of Heriot-Watt University

What would I bring to the role?

I envision being more open and really connect with the students as to investigate the core issues of their academic experience and work together towards finding a suitable solution for said issues.
