Ismail Sadurdeen


Ismail is the first International student to be elected as the President of the Students' Union.  He was born in India and grew up in Sri Lanka and is tri-lingual (English, Tamil and Sinhalese).  Ismail is an Economics graduate and during his time at University he was active in the Model United Nations society where he chaired conferences on global issues in Oxford, Cambridge, Marrakech and Nice.  He has also attended the summer school in UNNC on China's growth and development.

Ismail enjoys photography and travelling, so far he has travelled to 40 countries.  He believes his international experience will help him to succeed as SU President in this Global University.

Ismail is very pleased with the good relationship the University and the Students' Union have built up over the years to ensure students are at the heart of decision making.  Ismail is also the Chair of the Trustee Board which has an important role in enhancing the student experience through representation and providing greater opportunities for students.
