Martin is the Research Degrees Officer within the Graduate School. His role involves an oversight of the individual postgraduate research (PgR) student journey from the point of enquiry through to examination and graduation, including Secretary to the University’s Research Degrees Committee.

A key responsibility for Martin is to ensure the PgR student community get the best learning experience they can within the university. The various administrative regulations and processes are supported by the Graduate School and critically underpinned by the PgR student’s host academic School in which their principal supervisor is located.

In addition, Martin also contributes to further enhancement of the postgraduate research student experience in line with sector developments. This is achieved through interaction with colleagues in Graduate Schools based within other higher education institutions in Scotland and the UK.
