About me

Tom Fryer

I am a PhD researcher at Manchester Institute of Education. My research looks at how we can develop a new approach to graduate outcomes from higher education. Instead of just measuring the employment status and salary of graduates, I argue we should shift to more emancipatory graduate outcomes that better captures the diverse impacts of a university education. To do this, I dabble with critical realism and social justice theory.

I have a variety of professional experience in secondary and higher education, both internationally and in the UK. I currently serve as a Community Governor at Burnage Academy for Boys. Also, I run Write on Point, a project that has supported more than 1,200 students from under-represented backgrounds with their UCAS applications.
