Raphael Ejime

PG Research Student Ambassador

Raphael is our postgrad research student ambassador. He studied his master’s here and moved onto his PhD.

Working towards big goals
Postgraduate study creates so many opportunities. I came to Middlesex University with the ambition of working in partnership with international organisations, while still learning and lecturing on subjects within my field. As part of such a diverse community, I learnt how to listen to different perspectives and work with people from a range of backgrounds.

Invaluable experiences
My department helped me secure a work placement with the global trade union BWI in Switzerland, which provided me with valuable experience in the global arena, including attending high-profile meetings at the International Labour Organisation (ILO) headquarters in Geneva.
