Alumni help needed for PhD research

PhD student Yvonne Downs is researching into the value of higher education for working class women who were the first in their family to go to university. She is looking for alumni who may be able to help with her research.

Yvonne needs to contact women who went to the University between 1970 and 1979, were the first in their family to go to university, went to university straight from school rather than as a mature student and would identify themselves as white, working class at the time of going to university.

If you think the above description applies to you and that you might be interested in talking about your experiences in higher education, please contact Yvonne for more details on the phone number or email below.
