Jasmin Harrison (Student Support Scholar)
I’m a fourth year social work student and the Support Scholar for this semester. So far I’ve enjoyed looking into ideas for how to better support international students in their studies; how we can support all students through running workshops on some of those mysterious things like tenancy law, managing money, and other stuff that can help your uni life to go more smoothly; and finally looking into charity events that can be run to broaden the scope of events at uni, and bring more of both a caring and global context to life here. The scholarship has been a great experience of immersion into a busy, creative and successful organisation. It's really cool to have the opportunity to work on interesting projects, and generally a lot of fun too!
