Graduation 2015: Journal recognition for Biology and Education graduateWednesday 22 July 2015
Seeing his work recognised in print was the icing on the cake for Biology and Education graduate Christopher Myers.
“If I could sum up my university experience in three words, it would be ‘challenging, rewarding and inspiring’. The support I've received from staff over the past three years has been truly incredible, any questions I had regarding assignments or just general understanding of content, was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Particularly this year for my dissertation, I received fantastic support from both of my supervisors and other tutors.
“Having my research published in a journal feels amazing and is one of the biggest achievements of my life so far. It was a great feeling to get a First in my dissertation, but even better knowing that my research is going to inform other academics in the field.
“The highlight of my time at the University is definitely the people I have met, we've shared laughs and dealt with stress together when the work got tough. My confidence has developed immensely over the past three years and I have gone from being a first year student not wanting to answer a question, to a third year student happily volunteering to speak about my research at a dissertation conference.
“My ambition before I came to Liverpool Hope was to become a teacher, and that ambition has only strengthened. I have a place confirmed for a primary science teaching PGCE and I’m really looking forward to starting my teacher training.”
