Nominate a rector for uni

Have your say

NOMINATIONS are now open for the prestigious post of rector at Edinburgh University.

The successful candidate will follow in the footsteps of previous post holders including Prime Ministers Gordon Brown, Winston Churchill and David Lloyd George.

The new rector will replace journalist and broadcaster Ian Macwhirter, who became the 50th rector in 2009.

EUSA president Matt McPherson said: “The rectorial election is a great opportunity for us to stand united as a student and staff movement, in recognition of what we can achieve together.”
