Jessica Lomas

Department for Lifelong Learning

University Tutor: Foundation Programme


I joined the University of Sheffield in September 2019 as the Psychology Tutor for the DLL.

I studied my BSc in Psychology, and my MSc in Forensic Psychology and Mental Health, at the University of Manchester. After graduating from my masters in 2015 I went on to study a PhD at Nottingham Trent University within the Sexual Offences Crime and Misconduct Research Unit. My PhD explored the accommodation needs and experiences of people with sexual offence convictions.

Stemming from my interests in applied psychology, I have also worked within secure hospitals, prison settings, community mental health services, and for various voluntary sector organisations.
