I am graduating in July 2015 and the biggest thing I am going to miss is not just Nottingham and NTU, but the lifelong friends that I have made here."
More about Inas
Where are you from and why did you choose NTU?
"Before arriving here I was working in my home country, Egypt. I had studied previously with the Open University so I was familiar with the British education system and I made NTU my final choice because of the course content. The modules are really relevant to what I would like to do in my future career, and the consultancy project was one of the best of its kind. But more than that, I love the UK and the fact that the education system here has a global reputation."
What is the best part of your course?
"My favourite part of the course has been the advice I've been given and connections I've made. NTU organises company recruiters to come into the Business School and advise us on different aspects of the HR industry. They even offer interview practice and techniques to improve your CV. This type of experience is invaluable for my future career.
"The course modules have been really informative. Each one is very specific and teaches us the hands-on skills for a career in HR. The course is also accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) which is recognised internationally. Having this accreditation will help me find a job anywhere in the world."
What is Nottingham student life like?
"In my experience, Nottingham is one of the best cities in the UK to be a student. There are two large universities here so there's a massive student population. This means that the whole city is equipped for student life and that you are part of a huge academic community.
"The University organises social events throughout the year which are really fun. It means that I have been able to meet many people from all over the world and share this amazing experience with them. When I arrived I went to the Welcome Week activities which were really fun and informal and helped me meet so many people and start socialising straight away."
What advice would you give to new international students?
"My best advice would be to just enjoy your time in the UK – it's an amazing country and your time here will be over before you know it. Go to as many events as you can and you will be making many friends from all over the world in no time. I am graduating in July 2015 and the biggest thing I am going to miss is not just Nottingham and NTU, but the lifelong friends that I have made here."
