Sport & Student Development: Rushab Shah

Hey! My name is Rushab Shah, an international Mechanical Engineering student from Nairobi, Kenya, and I will be your sports and student development officer this year. 

My role is all about supporting sports clubs and any areas of the university that engage students in physical activity. It also includes helping students develop skills in areas outside of academic studies.

Throughout my 4 years in Bristol, I have been an active member in the men’s football team, and I was the president and founder of the East African Society. I took an interest in Scuba Diving in my first year, but the water in the UK was way too cold for me to carry this hobby on!

The university has a huge spread of clubs and societies and there is plenty of opportunity for students of all abilities to get involved. I am very excited for the new year and can’t wait to improve the quality of physical activity in our university!
