GUST’s Rectorial Elections Footage used by Russia Today

February 25, 2014, on the GUST Blog

GUST always makes sure to cover all the events that are important for the University of Glasgow and its students. The impact of this year’s rectorial elections, however, extends way beyond the campus. Edward Snowden, chosen by the students to represent them during the next three years, cannot leave Russia and therefore will be a non-working rector. GUST filmed the Rectorial Election results and our footage was used by Russia Today in their daytime programme. The video was also put on YouTube where it was viewed over 5,000 times in less than 24 hours.
