  Maree Perkins

Role: Head of Student Engagement and Development

Maree joined FindAMasters and FindAPhD in 2021 originally working on content and insights for our university customers. She jumped over to be our Student Content Manager in 2022, focusing on taking all the complicated areas of postgraduate study and distilling them into simple and useful info through guides, blogs, videos and more. She's now supporting the team to do this from her Head of role!

University education

Maree has a Bachelor’s degree in Multi-Media Journalism from Bournemouth University and completed her Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) with BPP University, London in 2017.

Postgraduate expertise

Maree studied her GDL part-time, alongside her full-time job, so she’s no stranger to the professional postgraduate experience. Balancing assignments and exams with her day-to-day work life was challenging, but she’s happy to share her tips and tricks to future postgraduate students, and explain how finance works (as well as self-funding which is what she did for her studies).

Before coming to FindAMasters and FindAPhD, Maree worked in student recruitment at a number of UK universities, helping students find the right undergraduate and postgraduate degree for them.
