Roles and Responsibilities

I joined the Student Financial Support Team in April 2015 and now work as a Senior Financial Support Assistant within the Team. My role mainly encompasses work regarding student discretionary funding; in particular, the Student Financial Support Fund and Financial Assistance Fund, which aim to act as supporting resources to UK and International Students who experience unexpected financial difficulties during their studies.

I also undertake administrative and financial support work for both the Research Scholarships scheme and University Endowed Prizes, as well as facilitating the organisation of the events which celebrate both of these scholarship schemes; The Research Scholarships and Expeditions Poster Presentation Evening which celebrates the work of Undergraduate students who have been awarded funding to undertake summer research projects and the Endowed Prizes Celebratory Luncheon which recognises outstanding academic achievement of Undergraduate students in Stage 1 of their studies.
