PhD student stories
Eleanor Lutman White
"I have an extremely supportive supervisor at CLL who understands the challenges of studying with two young children. For example, when my children are ill, I get nothing done! Whilst a PhD is a big commitment over a long period of time, the great benefit is that it is flexible enough to fit around my family commitments with support from my family and some paid childcare."
Nursakinah Md Salleh
"My first year was a struggle. I especially struggled with the language barrier. However, I had very good support from my supervisor, and colleagues as well as the whole Centre for Lifelong Learning."
"I appreciate very much the support from my supervisors and CLL at large. Doing a PhD in CLL has taught me to think critically and look at all sides of an issue."PhD student in social policy and social work
Fatima De Almeida Reszczynski
"My supervisors, Barbara and Will, have been incredibly supportive, understanding and very good at keeping me on my toes when I am least motivated. I also have a great support network within CLL where my peers constantly offer me support and encourage me to keep going."
