Dely Elliot has a strong interest in post-compulsory formal education, particularly the experiences (both academic and non-academic) of international postgraduate students and the psychological underpinning that can help explain the complexity of these experiences. A sound understanding of these students’ educational sojourn can greatly contribute to the theoretical field as well as promoting a better quality of experience for international students, domestic students and staff members in increasingly internationalised higher education institutions.
Dely Elliot is a lecturer, a student adviser, and a member of the Creativity Culture and Faith Research and Teaching group. Dely has a strong interest in academic acculturation (both academic and non-academic issues) faced by students learning in international higher education contexts. Dely actively researches and publishes as well as supervises PhD students in the area of international postgraduate research (PGR) and postgraduate taught (PGT) study. Currently, she is leading a research project 'Towards maximising international PhD students' experience in the UK'.
