Lecturer, School of Social and Policy Studies, Flinders University, South Australia
"At SFU I was given a level of support, both financial and academic, that I could not have received anywhere else. The interest and attention from my supervisory committee was substantial, but there were many other academics outside my committee who actively took an interest in my work and whose advice and mentorship was invaluable. Access to funding opportunities was abundant and was clearly explained to me, as was support in writing applications for grants and scholarships. I was also able to gain work experience as a teaching assistant, a researcher, and a course instructor, all of which helped prepare me for my career in academia."
