Hello fellow HDRs, there are plenty of people you can reach out to if you have questions, concerns, or just want to have a chat during your candidature. I’m one of those people. I’m based at Long Pocket campus, but please don’t let that deter you from reaching out if you’re from other campuses. You are always welcome to contact me for a chat!
