Education and Religion student Lucy

The course is not at all what I was expecting when I chose to study Religion. But in a good way. We look at religion through lots of different lenses, including sexuality, gender, feminism, family origins and disability, which I hadn’t even considered before.

During my time working as Head of Department, I noticed an increase in students who were battling with their mental health. I wanted to seek a degree that would not only satisfy my intellectual curiosity, but also provide me with the information and skill set necessary to pursue a more tailored career in education and mental health.

I was given more responsibility in supporting children in the Early Years who were on a pathway towards a diagnosis or further support in their education. This inspired me to apply for my masters as I wanted to know more and be the best I can be to support those who need it.
