Scottish Borders Campus - Home


I am Corto, the Student Union Vice President for the Scottish Borders Campus in Galashiels. I arrived from France last year as an exchange student to do my 3rd year in Fashion Marketing and Retailing here at Heriot Watt, and now here I am, taking over the University.

Not afraid of a challenge, I immediately found my home in this lovely area that is Galashiels during last year’s Freshers Week, and till then, I had the most amazing year of my young life. Thus, when my friend Peter (the last VP at SBC) asked me if I wanted to replace him this year, it was a relief to know I had a solution to stay one more year in Scotland. Moreover, it gave me the opportunity to change things on this campus by answering students’ requests, needs and more generally improve their social life and professional opportunities.

If you need to get in touch with me, you can pop by the Student Union Office from Monday to Friday between 9am to 5pm or send me an email at
