Mr Leith Forsyth
Leith Forsyth became Director of Student Life in July 2013 following a four-year period as Director of Student Affairs and five years as Director of Campus Services. Prior to this Leith spent six years as Manager of the University’s Students’ Association.
Student Life is the University's largest administrative department and aims to provide appropriate services to students which will support their physical, psychological, emotional and professional needs throughout their University life, thus optimising their student experience and enabling them to realise their full potential.
The Directorate consists of: the Careers Service, Campus Services, the Sport & Exercise Team, and Student Support (including the Counselling Service). It has recently been expanded to include the services provided by Infohub, the Chaplain and the Chaplaincy Centre along with Student Recruitment and Admissions. Each of these areas operated independently to service the needs of students (and staff) and were brought together under the umbrella of Student Life to enhance current provision through mutual support and collaboration with the Students’ Association.
