Hello everyone, I am a (graduated) Laidlaw scholar from the 2021/2022 cohort. I am very interested in African studies, linguistics and all forms of art and media. I am currently in my penultimate year at LSE, whilst undertaking a year abroad at Sciences Po in Reims to improve my French language skills. In my free time, I work as a freelance photographer whilst writing and editing for magazines.
Ben Oldham

Head of Global Opportunities, University of Leeds

It’s my role to oversee the portfolio of global opportunities and experiences available to students at the University of Leeds. These opportunities include our undergraduate leadership programmes that empower students to become active global citizens and future leaders. One of the most interesting parts of my roles is the chance to work with our local, regional and international partners. Working with people based all around the world on a daily basis broadens my perspective, exposes me to diverse cultures, and has enabled me to foster a global network. I am passionate about working with others to develop collaborations that provide the knowledge, skills, and experiences to prepare our students for leadership roles and contribute to positive change in the world. I am currently studying for the Leeds Executive Leadership Level 7 Apprenticeship. Undertaking the apprenticeship alongside my day job gives me the chance to enhance my leadership skills, understand the latest business theories, and apply them effectively to my work.

Henry Wood

Student, University of Durham

I am a second year student of History and Theology. I am interested in the concept of identity, how we see the world and how that impacts our actions and judgements. I believe today that we are struggling with a crisis in identity and it is my interest to see how we can resolve such tensions. I have a particular interest in religion in both traditional and secular contexts and am further interested in how visual art and music can reflect our inner selves

Grace Nash

Student, University of Leeds

Hi, my name is Grace and I'm a first-year Sociology student. I was given the opportunity by the Laidlaw Foundation to conduct research on the student-led project: 'Thinking Inside the Box.  In order to fully understand the project three other Laidlaw scholars (including myself) will be conducting interviews with the students, staff and stakeholders involved in the project. My focus for the research project will be on the pedagogic approach to 'Thinking Inside the Box' and how it allowed students to practice ownership and autonomy in designing their own authentic learning experiences and skills-development. I would love to collaborate with other scholars who have done research into the neoliberal university structure or who are interested in it!
