More about April
"I chose to study the MSc Psychological Well-Being and Mental Health at Nottingham Trent University as I had previously graduated from here with my undergraduate degree in BA Health and Social Care.
"The factors I love most about university life is being able to make a variety of friends from different walks of life. Moreover, I learnt a lot about myself, which oddly was supported by the lecturers I came across whilst completing my undergrad degree and postgrad.
"For my postgrad I have enjoyed the freedom of choice to write about whatever interests me the most in all my assignments and I have learnt so much about the broad range of topics within both my undergrad degree and postgrad degree, such as; counselling skills, how to carry out research, how to have the confidence to stand up in front of lots of people and present my ideas. Moreover, I have learnt how to become independent and the variation in people that I may work alongside, i.e., different cultures etc.
"The main lecturers / tutors I have had were fantastic! They supported me no matter what. They believed I could do well even when I doubted it myself. I owe these people a lot.
"I always thought I would do a degree and take on a random job within the area I studied now I know I want to experience a range of jobs, complete a PhD and return to an educational setting to teach the subject I love the most – Health and Social Care, with the qualifications gained from NTU giving me the stepping stone I need to become a teacher / lecturer.
"My advice for prospective students would be to work hard and play hard! You need the balance! More importantly ENJOY IT..... best years of my life were spent in this University.
"NTU for the win! T.R.E.N.T we are the Trent army!"
