Katherine Murphy


My role:

Open and Access Faculty Representative 


My priorities for this term:

Improving and maintaining smooth running of the faculty, and ensuring students’ voices are heard.


What I've been up to and what I'm currently working on:

I’ve got a lot of meetings this month and I’ve just received marks on my second TMA.


What I'm studying:

Y032 access module People, Work and Society.


What I do when I'm not studying:

I’m a single mum to a toddler so I’m having fun with him. 


My top study tips:

Find your study “groove” asap and just do what works for you. Is it music, Netflix, silence? Find what works and go. BUT don’t burn yourself out. Take regular breaks, stay hydrated, take screen breaks, and don’t be afraid to ask for an extension if you need to. Your tutor would rather give you an extension, than watch you lose marks because you handed it in late!
