More about Mariel
"I chose to study at NTU because I was awarded a scholarship and my husband also wanted to study an MSc Computer Games Systems course here. We thought it would be better to come to NTU, and as a plus we'd be together while studying for our master's.
"The course staff are really nice. My Course Leader was a big support and he helped me to apply for a travel bursary, taking time to check my application and suggest improvements.
"I have enjoyed the whole experience of studying and living in Nottingham. Being in a new place and meeting new people is completely amazing. What I enjoyed most was my work being appreciated and the fact that I could approach almost any artists or creator in a really easy way.
"I contacted a lot of people while studying at NTU, and networking is very important in any field if you want to progress, get feedback and brainstorm. I believe that my MA has given me more skills and more knowledge, and prepared me for different kinds of work."
