Hosted by lecturer Rob O’Connor, the podcast dives into what’s involved in research, highlighting some of the work being carried out by researchers in SETU.
Embarking on an educational journey as a 'mature' student (officially over 23 years old) can be a daunting experience. But how does this transition manifest in the postgraduate realm?
In this episode, we feature two PhD students, Steve Daly and Nicola Briggs, who chose to return to education later in life. Both have progressed beyond their undergraduate studies and have delved into the realm of research.
Steve and Nicola share their enthusiasm for their research projects focused on physical health and activity. Beyond discussing their academic pursuits, they reflect on the profound impact of returning to education on their personal and family lives.
