Shagbaor Hycent Amool

Student MP


There are 5 Student Members of Parliament and there is no set remit for any of these positions to work on throughout the year. We run on any issues we feel are important and need addressing, so the world is our oyster!

We stand for these positions based upon wanting to work on a particular issue of the student experience at Heriot-Watt that we see as important. This could be anything from wanting a 24-hour shop in the library to increasing the amount of street lighting around campus.

I'm supported by the Union Group most suited to the issue I raise. I also support the work of Parliament through proactively listening to, and working for students as well as planning activities that meet the needs of students and increases participation in what we do. I attend and contribute to Parliament Meetings, and take an active role in organising events or campaigns throughout the year, helping to implement motions and ideas that pass at Student Parliament.

My Key aims:

  • To advocate for more academic support and guidance, especially for practical work, research, and assessment.
  • To lobby for more financial aid and assistance, such as scholarships, grants, loans, or part-time jobs as well as to monitor and challenge any fees, charges, or expenses that may affect studies.
  • To promote and support student health and well-being, and to provide access to personal support and counselling services and foster a sense of community and belonging among the students, and to organize social and cultural events and activities.
  • To represent the views and interests to the PGT -EPS students and to communicate with them regularly and transparently.


I am a practical person in every sense who seeks solutions to problems which is common to the Engineering profession which I am a student of.


I am a bit of a talkative person
