Black Future Dr

Nina Higson-Sweeney

Black Future Dr is a brand new podcast dedicated to showcasing the experiences of black and black mixed doctoral students in the UK (including those pursuing PhDs, as well as professional and medical doctorates).

Episodes will be released weekly starting from Monday 3rd May 2021, and will feature a different student, studying a different doctorate, at a different university.

Every episode is hosted by Nina Higson-Sweeney, a black mixed student currently studying towads a PhD in Psychology at the University of Bath.

Each episode will be 20 minutes long, and will be an informal interview between Nina and a host of guest speakers. Topics we discuss range from supervision to mentorship; from non-traditional pathways to mental health; from the application processes to future careers.
