Erin Wheeler

Senior Graduate School Assistant

I am responsible for overseeing and contributing to the work produced by the Graduate School Assistants team. I prepare, maintain and ensure the effective execution of required tasks in line with our weekly action schedule and external deadlines. This means I work closely with the Graduate School Officer to ensure that we maintain excellent standards and develop improvements in our administrative processes. I am also (along with the two Graduate School Assistants (GSAs)) responsible for the provision of administrative support for specific parts of the admissions process for several clinical departments and for all on-course processes.

I liaise primarily with applicants/students, departmental administrators, Directors of Graduate Studies and college administrators. However I also have contact with a range of other individuals and administrative sections, including Graduate Admissions & Funding (GAF) and Student Data Management & Analysis (SDMA).
