Our department is based in Waterloo, a minute away from some of my favourite cultural institutions in London, such as the National Theatre and the Royal Festival Hall. The location of Waterloo Campus is fantastic – we are surrounded by food markets, cafes and restaurants.
My PhD supervisors Louise Archer and Emily Dawson have been very helpful and supportive through my studies and I have found it really valuable to be able to work with a range of academics from my field. The Science and Technology Education Group organises frequent seminars and research group meetings where people can present and discuss their work.
There are a lot of opportunities to get involved in activities outside the programme. This year, for example, we are organising the first doctoral conference at the Department of Education and Professional Studies.
