More about Anusha

"The huge interest I developed in biotechnology during my undergraduate studies motivated me to choose to specialise in the area of biotechnology by following up to postgraduate level. I also thought that undertaking postgraduate study will undoubtedly help me to enhance my future employability prospects.

"I decided to join NTU as it offered me the opportunity to study in my area of interest in an environment which can provide me with wealth of help and guidance to develop skills and expertise. NTU being located in a historically important, vibrant city with high cultural diversity was extra rewarding to me in experiencing university life.

"Before joining NTU, I knew that NTU has a dedicated campus for science and technology with advanced facilities and equipment. When I attended an open day, I was able to experience not only the modern high standard laboratory facilities but also friendly and supportive staff who are always there to help.

"There were many aspects of the course which stood out to me. One of the key aspects was the opportunity to study a variety of modules, which included an excellent mixture of theoretical and practical based learning. In addition, the course has a good variety of assessment styles, which not only include exams and essays but also oral and poster presentations. Therefore, this has allowed me to improve my confidence in effectively communicating to a large audience.

"NTU offers postgraduate courses in a range of subject areas within biological sciences, which helps prospective students to choose a career path that is right for them. The opportunity for postgraduate students to do a placement was undoubtedly one of the most significant factors which makes NTU different from other universities.

"My course will help me with my career as it provides valuable knowledge and skills that are essential for the workplace and opportunities to thrive as a global graduate. My career aspiration is to join a leading global biotechnology company and I believe that by the end of the course I will be in a good position to secure a job in my chosen career path.

"While at NTU, not only have I developed my knowledge and skills in my chosen course, but I have also made new friends from different parts of the world, who I could not have met without being at NTU. Being able to share my positive experiences with prospective students as a Student Ambassador for the School of Science and Technology is something that I am very proud to do."
