Hello all. My name is Kirsty Richards and I am in my first year of a Master of Business Psychology. I am studying this degree online via Weblearn. My undergraduate studies were in Psychology, and I am especially interested in how the human brain works, how individuals communicate with one another, mental health and the implications of psychological knowledge on business.
I am a domestic Australian student and previously completed my Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) at the University of Newcastle and attended Swansea High School (having grown up at the beautiful Caves Beach!). For those of you that aren’t from the Newcastle region, I encourage you to come for a visit – there is so much to see and do here, making it a truly amazing place to live, work and complete my studies (essay writing at the beach anyone?).
I am new to the NUPSA Executive, having recently been appointed as the Satellite Representative. I was motivated to apply for this role because I would like to achieve a stronger sense of community amongst all postgraduate students, especially those studying online. I am happy to answer any questions you have and welcome any suggestions about how to make our postgraduate community even better.
Please reach out at any time, and I look forward to being in contact with you soon!
