Proud to be Staffs Story: Gemma Hurst

Course Director | School of Health, Science and Wellbeing


"Gemma has been an inspiration from the first day I set foot onto the Staffordshire University grounds as an undergraduate in Psychology. I had the honour of being under her supervision for my FYP and her support and belief in me took me through a lot of hard times. Her knowledge and passion for Health Psych is contagious. Her teaching approach is on point and flawless, from content to delivery. Gemma is the kind of lecturer and tutor that keeps your flare for learning burning. Thank you, Gemma, for all you have done for me and my cohort and all the others you have and will help in the field of Psychology and specifically Health Psychology. "
