Postgraduate Students' Senate Convenor


The Postgraduate Students’ Senate Convenor leads the Postgraduate Students’ Senate, an assembly that represents the views, interests, and needs of all postgraduate students at the University.

The Postgraduate Convenor drives the identification of issues that affect the education, educational and extra-curricular experiences of postgraduate students. The Postgraduate Convenor also ensures the Senate genuinely captures and represents the voice of all postgraduate students at the University. The Postgraduate Convenor leads campaigns on all relevant issues and supports the advocacy of postgraduate students and their concerns. 

In addition to the overarching functions of the Senate, it is the Convenor’s responsibility to monitor and support the Senate Representatives.

The Postgraduate Convenor works closely with the President, UNSA staff, and the other members of the Executive to achieve these responsibilities.



Tegan Stettaford

Hi, my name is Tegan Stettaford and I’m your Postgraduate Convenor for 2022. I am here to support and advocate for you and all your postgraduate needs and concerns.
I’m a PhD candidate commencing my second year of the degree, having completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) in 2020. My research is in the field of Health Psychology, in which we aim to improve the physical health for those with a mental health condition. This year, I am very excited to get to know the broader postgraduate community at UoN, and to hopefully bring this community a little closer together. I am also thrilled to have the platform to uncover and advocate for what postgraduate students feel they need, to make their time studying more seamless.

Outside of UNSA and my PhD I like to keep quite busy! I am a team leader for ASSBI; I teach into psychology undergraduate courses at UoN; I tutor school students; I am a peer mentor; I write for OPUS; I am an executive member for UoN Writers’ Club; I am a part of the ALIVE research network among other things.

As for a fun fact, I absolutely despise sauce (sorry).
