Masters student starts ambulance volunteer work to support the NHS
Jinjue, one of our MA Psychology and Education students, has started a four week's ambulance volunteering as part of the St. John Ambulance.
She says "“As you may be aware, St John Ambulance is currently working very closely with the NHS to provide any support available at this critical moment with the pandemic. As a St John volunteer, we are offered the option to volunteer for the SJA response to COVID-19, and I have signed up to support the NHS. I will do my best to stay safe in the frontline, and hope everyone does their bit to stay safe as well!"
Well done Jinjue. It is really heartwarming to hear how our community is helping the NHS during this time.
MA Global Education and International Development student, Robyn Shreeve, has had a version of one of their essays published in the journal 'Compare'. This is a fantastic achievement, well done Robyn!
