DPhil Student

College Affiliation: St Hilda's College

The focus of Nuzha’s current research is on undergraduates, debt and employability—by looking at undergraduates in universities in both Scotland and England, using both quantitative and qualitative techniques, she will explore the extent to which fee-paying and debt-aversion influence educational and vocational choices and attitudes; specifically, learning, employability attitudes and identity.

In particular, it seeks to highlight the ways in which these issues are affected by SES and type of university.  Her research interests are higher education, the labour market, learner identity and social exclusion.

She holds a Grand Union DTP ESRC Studentship in conjunction with The Edge Foundation.
