    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oxford Brookes University.

    Interview

    Applied online for a PhD studentship, got an invite to a Skype interview soon after. Two interviewers and both were very nice. They asked questions about my previous research experience and about the science and techniques underlying the proposed PhD project. Afterwards they explained the structure of the course and explained things like that I'd have to committ a certain amount of time each week to teaching.

The 10th October 2017 marked World Mental Health Day, a day for mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma. With one in four adults being diagnosed with a mental illness at some stage of their lives, the World Health Organization (WHO) identifies deteriorating mental health as one of the most serious health challenges of the twentieth century to Western society. Dr Christian Ehrlich has developed a model for assessing the work goals of individuals and the link to happiness and engagement, through his research into mental health in the workplace.
