“I chose to study at NTU because my sisters were studying here and I felt I needed an environment where I could settle in fast with familiar faces. Assistance with my visa acquisition and prompt responses regarding admission questions contributed immensely to my decision. I had also read that NTU has been ranked highly in research, academic achievement and employability. I loved the fact that the location accommodated student life and living, and that students are not restricted to classroom learning. All of these factors put together were irresistible. I was also awarded an international postgraduate scholarship.
“MA Public Health at NTU focuses on the strategic and international aspects of public health, environment and sustainable development, which are critical to effective multidisciplinary practice in these fields. The course content is cutting edge and reflects current developments.
“I love all my modules, as there is something new to learn every day. They have changed the scope of my thinking and are all useful. I particularly enjoyed the Concept of Health and Healing module because it looks at different discourses in public health theory and practice. It analyses topics both in the UK and globally and within social, economic and political contexts. It also explores social constructs of health beliefs and health identities and the emergence of social and economic institutions that govern the health systems locally, internationally and globally. I also love the Policy and Practice in Multidisciplinary Public Health module, as it integrates theory, policy and practice relating to multidisciplinary public health. It builds skills necessary for effective professional activity and has challenged me to think of the area I want to specialise in. It has been a wonderful experience learning how to effect change, be a leader and manage my time.
“Thanks to my course I’m better at talking to an audience. I have been able to attend conferences, meet professionals in the public health field, and have had the opportunity to be a volunteer facilitator at the Nottingham Contemporary ‘Loudspeaker Conference’. I have benefitted from the English learning support at NTU and different library support lectures on referencing, writing literature reviews and much more.
“For students considering coming to NTU, I would say come and experience life here for yourself. You will be exposed to lots of learning and job opportunities, so make use of the facilities and opportunities as much as you can. It is awesome to be in an environment where everyone is accepted regardless of your country or background – the School of Social Sciences at NTU really supports international and global unity.”
