Before joining the Law Faculty, Helen worked for the central University and the Department for Continuing Education on a number of different Access-based projects (such as the UNIQ summer school). Before that, she was commuting between Oxford, London, Liverpool, and Brussels for her PhD, entitled 'Adrian Henri and the Merseybeat movement: performance, poetry, and public in the Liverpool Scene of the 1960s'. And before that, she studied English Literature and Language at Corpus Christi, University of Oxford. When she isn't answering admissions enquiries or running outreach events, Helen can most often be found knitting, baking, or riding her bike around the city where she was born, raised, attended University, and apparently can't get away from.
Helen's role covers three main areas:
1. Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach
- supporting all aspects of the admissions process in the Faculty of Law, including liaising with tutors and colleges throughout the cycle
- handling queries regarding anything and everything to do with applications from prospective students, their parents, teachers, and so on
- attending regional conferences, Higher Education Fairs, and both out-bound and in-bound schools visits
- organising both the Law Faculty’s own Open Days and our part in the University-wide Open Days, plus any other admissions-related talks and events
2. Undergraduate Studies
- supporting the use of WebLearn for all undergraduate courses
- administering the Eldon Law Scholarship
- supporting the work of the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies and Access
- organising the Faculty’s programme for the UNIQ summer school in Law
- coordinating the Pathways to Law Programme alongside Jude Hammond
- and is working on the Faculty's Access-specific website and other materials
