“While applying I considered other university courses but NTU had better facilities to offer and the course offered a proper melange of theories and real world applications. I was very particular about module structure, programme-based ranking and university rankings. NTU has a prestigious reputation and the quality of learning they provide is something I considered while applying to this University.
“Location was one of the key features of this University as you will find everything conveniently located. Another important aspect is that it is very student friendly. Nottingham has been like living a dream - it has given me a once in a life time opportunity to explore and live independently.
“Every day has become a new learning chapter. I believe that my learning as a postgraduate student has significantly enhanced my capabilities and skills set which will help me for my future career. Postgraduate study has given me a new dimension to my career plans as I have discovered new career opportunities where I can work and give back to society. I plan to work as a counsellor or child psychologist in a school or charitable organisation and, after gaining few years of professional experience, I would also consider pursuing a PhD.
“I just love how every journal, article or book you require is readily accessible. Boots Library is like a home to us when it comes to preparing for group presentations. The study rooms are so useful. I use the NOW portal daily as professors upload the slides they discuss in the class and we can always go back and read the slides.
“My advice to new students would be to stay in touch with your professors. They will always help you out if you are willing to take up new challenges and explore your potential - everyone has been so kind. I really admire the professors from my course. As an international student it can get difficult since the education system is totally different from what we are accustomed to. I’m glad to have professors like mine who keep me motivated and who have always helped me in adapting to the new education system.”
