About Caitlin

Q1. What was your experience of Further/Higher Education?

My experience of Higher Education was a real upward trajectory - I struggled massively with homesickness and loneliness in my first year, and because I thought I was going to love university from the offset, it made the transition harder. I didn't know how talk to people about how I was feeling, because it was completely different to my expectations.

I was so pleased when I opened up to my peers and support network to find I wasn't the only one struggling, and my vulnerability helped me form some of my closest friendships. Three years later, I didn't want to leave!

Q2. What do you like most about your work as a Student Adviser?

University can feel like an incredibly overwhelming place, but it is also such an exciting time, and having the opportunity to be a part of students' journeys is a real privilege. I still fondly remember all the people who helped me through my university journey, and it is an honour to play that role (however big or small) in someone's else's adventure!

As a Student Adviser you are constantly meeting such a variety of people, which means you are always learning something new, and it is rewarding to feel you are supporting others whilst still growing yourself.

Q3. What's a surprising or interesting fact about yourself?

I only have one kidney - the unexpected perk of a relatively major operation aged 8 is that I am at least set up with an answer to this question!
