Postgraduate Education Officer

Laura Ho - Bristol SU Postgraduate Education OfficerLaura Ho - Postgraduate Education Officer

Hello, 

My name is Laura and I am your Postgraduate Education Officer, for a second year running. 

I became a Bristol student in 2010, doing an undergraduate degree in Philosophy and Economics and living in Hiatt Baker hall in my first year. I am currently halfway through a part-time postgraduate degree in Public Policy. As an undergraduate, I was involved in the feminist society, the Amnesty International society, the Oxfam society and the LGBT+ society but for the past year I have been working full-time as the Postgraduate Education Officer at Bristol SU. 

My job is to ensure the educational experience of all postgraduate students (taught and research) is the best it can be. I’m responsible for postgraduate academic and welfare matters. So get in touch with any concerns about supervision, tutoring, teaching, research environments and your well being while studying.

This year my focuses are: 

  • Campaigning for space and facilities for research students in Arts 
     
  • Creating staff/student mentoring spaces for postgraduate students from backgrounds that are underrepresented in academia 
     
  • Setting up a buddy system for international and home Masters students 
     
  • Continuing my work on improving the experience of part-time students 
     
  • Continuing to support the Postgraduate Network 
     

I am always happy to hear from you so drop me an email or on Facebook.
