What has been your biggest achievement during your course so far?

My biggest achievement so far has been ny own personal upkeep of good grades on my assignments. It is reassuring that even though it may be slightly challenging I am still very capable.

What are the best things about your course?

My course is challenging but also interesting. I have made so many friends from different backgrounds and it is good that everyone likes to discuss, study and interact even outside of lectures/workshops. The different perspectives we all carry have curated a dynamic learning environment across most of my modules and it is actually quite motivating.

How has your funding helped you?

I received a Birmingham Masters Scholarship, which has helped by covering a proportion of my tuition which is of great help.

Tell us about yourself and your journey to postgraduate study.

I actually graduated way in 2019, and it took me a while to finally do my masters, mostly due to financial reasons. However, as I had so much time to consider studying my masters and doing this course I was only more and more certain as time passed that I wanted to be here and I wanted to do my masters!

What was your motivation for postgraduate study?

I wanted to further pursue the subject field that I studied for my undergraduate degree, while also developing useful skills and further exposing myself to different aspects of the field.
