Aizhan Amangazina

Hello. My name is Aizhan. I am a second-year PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Aberdeen, motivated by a desire to learn and succeed. I come from a beautiful country Kazakhstan which is in central Asia. I received a Master's degree in Linguistics from the University of Manchester five years ago.

Due to the exciting and responsible nature of this role, I volunteered to be a student representative this summer. I am a confident, friendly, determined individual- love meeting new students on the daily routine of University studies, sporting activities, playing the piano and socializing.

As a student representative, I would like to stay in touch with other students and contribute to creating a positive perception of what it's like to be a student by planning various academic and extracurricular events. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your studies, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am here to represent your interests in University committee meetings in order to obtain the best possible outcomes.
