Postgraduate Officer

Naila Abid - she/her

What course are you studying?

I am in my first year of PhD.

What inspired you to become a PTO?

I wanted to get involved with the Student Union to bring a positive change in the lives of my fellow postgraduate students. As a PhD student, I know people can feel isolated at times and may not feel included at the university. Therefore, I want to bring together the PGR students to feel they belong at the university and are not alone.

What’s the most important thing you’d like to change this year?

I would like to form a postgraduate community at the university on which the students can rely on for support and communication and troubles during their PhDs and other postgraduate courses.
