Student Trustees

Faizan Sayed

Faizan is originally from India. He has been studying Mechanical Engineering at Teesside University since September 2020 as part of the Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship scheme. During his relatively short time here, he has been a Course Rep and worked as a Student Ambassador before applying to join the Board of Trustees at TUSU.


"I spent a lot of time carefully analysing different universities in the UK before choosing Teesside. It was apparent to me that across all aspects of the student experience, this was a great place to come," says Faizan. "In my work as a Rep and Ambassador, I have been keen to help other students to have the best possible time here, and I hope to build on that as part of the Board. I know first hand what a vital role TUSU plays in supporting and developing students, so it is an honour to be a Trustee and be able to help with achieving that mission."
