Chris Carr

Summary of current role 
I currently provide postgraduate students at the University of York with advice on academic and welfare issues such as appeals, misconduct, exceptional circumstances, complaints, supervisor issues and leave of absence.

Previous Experience 
I  joined the GSA in May 2021 from Kent Union (at the University of Kent) where I worked as the academic lead adviser. I also supported students on a number of other topics such as housing, finance and student visas. Previous to that, I worked at the University for the Creative Arts Students’ Union as the Advice and Representation Coordinator where I oversaw the Course Rep system and provided academic advice for, HE, UG and PG students on all four of their campuses.

Fun Information
In my spare time I enjoy playing paintball (although it has been a while and I am definitely now out of shape!), visiting areas of natural beauty, museums/galleries, historic sites, wine, Fortnite (shhh) and I have a fascination with zombie popular culture.
