Proud to be Staffs Story: Edward Tolhurst

Senior Lecturer, School of Health and Social Care


Study at University is designed to challenge our views of the world and our understanding, contributing the worldwide understanding of key issues that affect our world. Masters level study is no exception to this, and occasionally we need the support of a dedicated and passionate supervisor. Thank you, Edward, for making us Proud to be Staffs.


Edward Tolhurst's Story

"In November 2020 Edward took over the supervision of my Master's dissertation after I had been struggling with it for a variety of reasons, for many months. Since taking on my supervision Ed has been a brilliant support to me and has gone above and beyond what is expected of a dissertation supervisor. He has met with me regularly (virtually of course) to keep me on track, contacted university support services on my behalf when I was having no luck, and generally given me some amazing advice when I was struggling. Without Edward's support, I would not be in the position to hand in my dissertation in a few weeks and probably would have left Staffordshire University without my Masters. I submitting this nomination as a thank you to him for all his support."
