VP Education

Fizzy Abou Jawad




My role as Vice President Education is key to supporting a positive academic experience for all students at the University of Edinburgh. I sit on committees and groups within the university and provide a 'student voice' on matters relating to students academic experience, which includes learning and teaching, academic facilities and university academic policy and processes. This role also provides the opportunity to lead and coordinate campaigns and projects relating to students academic experience. 


I hope that through this role I am able to improve the academic experience of all the students at The University of Edinburgh; for success in this role, I believe communication is key! So please do get in touch with me if you have any concerns or ideas.

Hi! I'm Fizzy Abou Jawad, your elected Vice President Education for 2020/21. I began my degree in 2016 and studied Biological Sciences - Immunology (BSc Hons). I grew up in Abu Dhabi (UAE) so am used to much warmer weather than in Edinburgh!! 


During my time at university, I was publicity officer and then president of the touch rugby club. It was through my involvement with sport that I was able to meet many different students from a range of backgrounds who were completing a range of degrees and hearing about all of their different learning experiences is one of the reasons I ran for this role. Outside of sport I love exploring the city and visiting all the cute coffee shops around Edinburgh - if you have any recommendations let me know!
