Charlotte Jackson

Hi, I'm Charlotte and I'm your Education Officer. My home town is good ol' Barnsley where I studied art at school, and I continued studying Contemporary Art BA(hons) here at Huddersfield. So yes, I am a fully-pledged art nerd and a film geek in my spare time!

In my role as Education Officer, I am responsible for ensuring any academic issues raised by students are effectively addressed by the University. I also help to coordinate and train our network of Course Reps on campus so all students and staff are well-informed.
