How did studying at Northumbria help you achieve your career goals / give your career an edge?

My studies at Northumbria provided me with a widely applicable skill set, along with the backing of a good institution. Also the MA proved to be a very strong resource when searching for employment.

What was the best thing about your course?

Working on my MA thesis on Huey P. Newton and the Free Huey Campaign with fantastic tutoring from Dr Street. It was a pleasure to work with him and a very interesting piece to work on. Hopefully I will come back to this research one day.

Who inspired you the most, and why?

Family. I owe them!

Which skills/knowledge did you learn on your course that you use most now/throughout your career?

Attention to detail. RESEARCH. The ability to make a concise argument.

What did you enjoy most about your time at Northumbria University?

A combination of my course and the sports/social aspect. Being involved in the hockey team/socials was brilliant.

What advice would you give somebody who is thinking of studying at Northumbria?

Definitely go to Northumbria. It is a great campus with really helpful staff. My advice though would be to join either a sports team or some form of social/committee group. They make such a difference!

How would you describe your time at Northumbria in 3 words?

Absolutely class. Really.
