Hi everyone, I’m Sabrina and your Postgraduate Academic Officer for 2017/18. I’m a PhD student in Psychology and I also did my Masters here, so I’ve been in Durham for five years and I’ve enjoyed every moment of it. My favourite thing about my postgraduate studies was getting involved in College and the Students’ Union and getting to know so many great people. My key piece of advice to you would be to get involved in as many things as you can. I know live as postgraduate can be very busy, but it is so important to have the right balance of work and free time.
I’m the first PG Academic Officer at Durham SU and we have very exciting times ahead of us. Postgrads have been overlooked by the University for quite some time and I’m here to change that. My job is to make sure that the postgraduate voice gets heard and I will make sure you have a great time in Durham. Between now and October I will be working on my objectives for the coming academic year and I’m trying to finish my PhD.
If you have any ideas, want to get involved in the SU or just have a chat, please get in touch with me! Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), follow the Students’ Union on Twitter (@durhamSU) and/or find me on Facebook (Sabrina Seel SU).
