The Education Liaison and Outreach team along with our dedicated ambassadors deliver all talks, workshops and sessions off-campus in addition to our range of on-campus events and activities.
I manage the Education Liaison and Outreach Team at Middlesex University. Following the completion of my studies with a BA English Studies and an MA in Arts Criticism, I have been working in the education sector since 2001 and have been at Middlesex University from 2004. I started my career in the education sector through working as a Student Ambassador and have been promoting the benefits and rewards of Higher Education since.
At Middlesex my focus has been leading the team in managing key stakeholder relationships, specifically with schools and colleges in the UK. I have a special interest in Outreach and Widening Participation work and enjoy working with all of our audiences in the large number of projects we deliver.
I organise and deliver various interactive, engaging and aspiration-raising activities and events targeted at Sixth Form College students. I also lead on the development of higher education print publication aimed at younger audience (age group – 14 to 16 years old).
Originally from Nepal, I graduated from Middlesex University in 2013 with a degree in International Development. Prior to joining the team, I worked as Admissions Communications Advisor and then as Graduate Academic Assistant at the Flood Hazard Research Centre. Outside work, I am a part-time postgraduate student studying Gender, Development & Globalisation.
I joined the Education Liaison and Outreach team in November 2014, after graduating from Middlesex University with a degree in Criminology. My role is to assist the team in organising and delivering a variety of events both off and on-campus. I am also responsible for looking after the Student Ambassador Scheme, which involves the recruitment, selection and training of our ambassadors.
Being a recent graduate, I have a good knowledge of the Higher Education system. I feel I am an advocate of Higher Education and I am passionate about raising aspirations amongst younger learners.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for any in-school talks and events.
My role within the team is largely focused on outreach. I support learners planning to progress onto higher education, those who are academically able, as well as those who require more nurturing and may not have had much exposure to higher education. I am also responsible for the younger audience framework, in which I develop a portfolio of activities which aid students at different stages of their education. In addition to this I deliver presentations, workshops and subject-related activities, as well as large on-campus events where we interact with almost 1000 young learners.
I find my role really rewarding and satisfying as it enables me to help learners make those vital life-changing decisions and inspire those who are young to develop transferable skills they need to thrive!
As well as compiling your Education Liaison and Outreach email newsletters I am responsible for the development of our Make Your Mark microsite. This site provides access to a range of resources designed to aid the progression of the students you work with into higher education.
I am passionate about widening participation, and hope that the site develops into a helpful portal for young people, as well as an exciting destination for students considering higher education.
