Originally from London, Abigail Daniels was drawn to Psychology at Hull.
Abigail was drawn to Psychology at Hull because it offered the fast-track Clinical Psychology Doctorate (ClinPsyD).
After completing her course, she has gone on to work in Leeds supporting those who have suffered a psychological impact of Covid-19.
“Hull offered a unique opportunity that allowed me to go straight from undergrad to a postgraduate degree course upon completion,” said Abigail.
“The moment I realised that I wanted to come to Hull was quite a pivotal one. I had previously been adamant that I didn't want to go to university, but when I looked at the course options and the academic support offered in the Psychology Department I was sold.
“I chose psychology because I have a keen interest in understanding people, why they do what they do and how we can gain insight into these behaviours. I wanted to study psychology at Hull because having read about the lecturers I was really excited to learn from those who were also conducting research of their own who could really support and nurture any ideas that I had within their field.”

And that support really helped shape Abigail during her time at Hull.
“During my time here I've become an independent learner who feels confident to seek support as and when needed,” she said.
The academic staff are encouraging and approachable and have really guided me through my time here.”
Away from the classroom, Abigail made the most of the huge range opportunities open to her as a Hull student.
She explained: “I've definitely become a more sociable person since I've come to Hull. I've tried out a range of different societies, from Boxing to ACS (Afro-Caribbean Society) and Women Empowered. I've also been a student ambassador and taken up motivating other students to consider university as an option for their future.”
