Guy Stern, MScR 2020

'When I decided to retire and to try to answer this research question about biomechanical mobility, I looked for staff that are experts in the field.'

Jo Forster, PhD 2018

'I found my PhD research study the best thing that I have done in my life...It was a great opportunity to continue to learn new knowledge and skills, to become a critical thinker, as well as find different ways of working (e.g. digitally) and finding time to write academically.'

Michele Saraiva Carilo, PhD 2018

'Expertise of faculty made me choose Moray House...I felt that I needed to be trained and supervised by scholars who understood theory, respected practice, and, mostly, acknowledge diverse contexts rather than pushing Eurocentric perspectives on education.'

Edward Hall, PhD 2015

'It was such a supportive and inspiring environment, one that both engaged and challenged me. Any form of doctoral study is a significant challenge, but my supervisory team and the interactions I had with a diverse group of peers always spurred me on and scaffolded that journey.'

Pamela Mary Stagg-Jones, PhD 2008

'I gained confidence in my ideas and my research from my time as a student at Moray House. My life is more confident in every way. It was a life-changing time.'
