Mark joined FindAUniversity to develop our first ever advice articles in 2013 and now serves as our Director of Audience & Editorial, making sure our websites and information are as useful as possible for people thinking about Masters and PhD study.

He has a PhD in English Literature from the University of Sheffield, as well as Bachelors and Masters degrees from the University of Kent and the University of South Wales. His specialist subject used to be gothic fiction, but these days it’s student finance and postgraduate education policy. He still reads the odd scary novel though.

Mark is a regular presenter at our study fairs and is frequently invited to speak at higher education forums and events, ensuring the needs of postgraduate students are understood by universities and policy makers.
