    Welcome from Professor Glen O’Hara

    Professor Glen O'Hara
    Professor Glen O’Hara

    My name is Professor Glen O’Hara and I am in charge of organising Postgraduate Research Degrees across our Faculty.

    We have a large, lively and growing postgraduate community working here in the Humanities and Social Sciences – a group of impressive and dynamic students who are leading the way in cutting-edge research. We are passionate about fostering the careers of our early career researchers during their time here, and ensuring they gain both practical and academic research skills training, leadership experience and teaching practice as integral parts of the doctoral programmes we offer. Oxford Brookes provides both a great place to study and an opportunity to belong to a doctoral learning community which nurtures excellence in research and scholarship. It is a great place to share with academic colleagues in exciting research and learning.

    I’m available throughout the semester to talk to research degree students about their experiences on the course, and about Oxford Brookes life in general. My email is if you’d like to make an appointment to come and see me.
