Yulia Shenderovich - Current Scholar
College: St Hilda's College
Subject: Evidence Based Social Intervention
Year started: 2011
Yulia has a BA in International Relations and Journalism from the American University in Bulgaria, which she completed in 2011, having been awarded an Open Society Institute merit-based scholarship. Her core research interest lies in the field of education and behavioural change. She has previously worked as an education project manager, university tutor and summer camp counsellor. She has also volunteered at the Bulgarian Helsinki Committee, a human rights organisation, and this experience has strengthened her belief that sound research and skilful communication can bring about changes in policy that increase public good. With her degree from Oxford, Yulia hopes to gain a strong intellectual foundation for pursuing a career in public policy research in her home country of Belarus.
