Matt Johnstone

Summary of current role
I provide advice and support to postgraduate students on a range of academic-related issues, see our advice webpage for more information.

Previous Experience
Originally I came to York as a student, graduating in 2020. I was fortunate enough to be elected as the Academic Officer in YUSU, our sibling SU, for two consecutive (and relatively successful) terms 2020-2022. I did a brief stint working in the University on the VLE, and in September 2023 I joined the GSA team to get back to supporting students directly.

Fun Information
I’m a self-proclaimed nerd, with a deep love of sci-fi and high fantasy. I’m also quite techy, enjoying spending my spare time on my computer. On the odd occasion I leave the house, I enjoy various coffee shops and eateries around the local area.
