More about Rachana Uday
Why did you decide to do postgraduate study?
“Undergraduate studies are very common in India, so I always knew I would do more than a bachelor’s degree. Furthermore, I enjoyed reading and researching during my undergraduate degree, so I wanted to carry on.”
What made you choose NTU?
“Before I decided to apply for NTU, I met with a representative. As he introduced me to the university, I almost knew at that moment I would be choosing NTU over other UK universities that I had applied for. It wasn’t just about the accreditations; his representation proved how much the university is actually interested in getting to know their potential students.”
What do you enjoy most about your course at NTU?
“I was keen to develop my skills and knowledge in Human Resources and gain practical experience. The course provides both in-depth theoretical knowledge and a placement opportunity. The practical element of the course has been my favourite part so far. The environment, facilities and the course leaders motivate me to do more. The diverse class also helps bring a global point of view to the course content.”
What do you think about the course staff? How do they support your learning and University experience?
“The staff support students with every step of their academic journey and more. I have been amazed to see the lengths the academics go to help students and get the best from us.”
What do you think about the facilities available to you?
“I was overwhelmed with the amount of facilities at NTU. The libraries and access to databases are without a doubt my most treasured facilities. The university promotes independent learning and makes sure the students have all the resources they need and that they are available very easily.”
Why would you recommend your course / NTU to someone looking to study in that area?
“The primary reason to recommend this course is it prepares students for the workplace. The development of skills and knowledge throughout the course is designed to ensure student’s success in their future job roles.”
What do you believe sets us apart from other Business Schools?
“NBS does not limit itself to traditional teaching and learning methods. In only four months here, I have realised that all of the module leaders and teachers are getting feedback and making positive and practical changes to their modules.”
What has been your greatest achievement at NTU so far?
“Working as a course representative has been one of my greatest achievements at NTU. It allows me to network with senior academics and make a meaningful contribution towards the course. It also allows me to be the means of communication between the module leaders and students.”
Have you taken up any opportunities offered by NBS? How has this contributed to your university experience?
“The opportunities like Thinkubator and Personal Development Week were important not just for personal development but also for networking. The events organised by the student’s union provide the opportunity to actually come forward and make change or help out other students; for example being a mental health champion.”
