Molly Knight

Vice President (Education)

Hi I'm Molly, and I'll be you're Vice President Education next year! I'm so excited to get started, it feels like such a long time ago when I was elected but also the past few months have been such a whirlwind. I can't wait to meet you all!

What do I do?

As VP Education my main focus will be on academic issues and representing the views of students to the University to improve the learning and teaching experience.

In my role, I attend a lot of academic University committees, putting forward the views and opinions of students. I will also work and collaborate with my counterparts in Dubai and Malaysia to represent global academic issues.

I work closely with the Academic Coordinator to support and chair Academic Congress as well as regular meetings with School Officers and Class Reps. I take into consideration the issues they raise, and work together to find solutions and present them to the University and other relevant stakeholders to enhance the student experience.


Tell Us About Yourself

During my studies, I was on the committee for two societies. I was the Social sec for the Eco Society and I was Vice President of the Geography society. On top of that, I was grateful to have been elected as the EGIS MP as well!

I stood for VP Education because I had a slight insight into the responsibility of the role when I was the EGIS MP over the last year, and I love helping people so it seemed like the perfect opportunity!

This year I have BIG plans, including:

My 3 key goals of the year are:

  • Help students with any education related issues wherever and whenever I can!
  • Work with the University to maintain feedback standards across the board!
  • Meet as many of you as possible!

What are you most looking forward to

Most looking forward to working closely with the rest of the wonderful team and helping lots of students!


I took part in the junior Scottish curling championship when I was 14, and came third!


I have just graduated! My course was a BSc in Geography
