My undergraduate degree is BA Business and Human Resource Management and my Masters degree is MA International Management. I also completed a PGCE in Post Compulsory Education and Training.

Research

I am currently completing a PhD at Newcastle University studying students' conceptions of academic conduct in UK Higher Education. The aim of this study is to explore and examine students’ understanding and development of the concept of academic conduct within the context of their undergraduate education programme within a university setting in the North of England.

The study explores variation in experience leading towards identification of qualitatively different conceptions of academic conduct. Conceptions will then be reviewed in light of previous research and current HE-generated frameworks.
