John Deemz


After graduating from BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science, John Deemz’s career progressed as he worked as a science technician, demonstrating scientific experiments and assisting in the upkeep and running of science departments in secondary schools. Recently, he was a lecturer at Sunderland College where he rediscovered his passion for health and safety which led him to apply for an MSc in Health, Safety and Wellbeing.

When I was an undergraduate, the support that I received was excellent. The staff were brilliant and always on-hand to give guidance and advice. With the support of my project tutor, I jointly won the BGS Symposium prize awarded by the Institute of Biomedical Science. In the near future, I’m looking to undertake a PhD and have some starting ideas on my subject of research which I’m looking to develop over the coming months.

Sunderland was my only choice when I decided to undertake an MSc. The best aspect of the course is the variety of topics; there are loads of different aspects that are all interlinked, and it’s the exploration of the subject matter that I’m enjoying the most. I would recommend the University of Sunderland to other students, and I have! I’m also a Student Ambassador for the University, choosing the role for the purpose of being able to tell prospective students about Sunderland, its facilities, staff and the support it provides to give academic excellence. Also, my eldest daughter graduated with an Honours Degree in 2017.

The University of Sunderland is a vibrant, dynamic place that is helping me explore my chosen academic subjects – it’s an honour to be linked with the university."
