More about Li
Why did you choose to study a postgraduate degree in Paramedic Science?
"Learning is an endless journey, which can lead to professional recognition and a new career."
Why did you choose your course and NTU?
"NTU has the latest knowledge and a variety of teaching technology. They also provide different types of resources for different needs. For example, the library is easy to access and provides more support than just books and a space to study.
Besides study, NTU has a ton of activities to enrich our student life."
What’s your experience been like of your course so far?
"I love the course! Lecturers are friendly and helpful. Classmates are deeply engaging and always share their experiences and insight. Peer teaching is an important part of university learning. I am looking forward to the placement that starts in May!"
Have you been involved in any projects or extra-curricular activities that have supplemented your studies run through NTU?
"I joined the university gym, and play-for-fun sport club. Having time to relax is healthy and keeps me on the right path.
There are other cultural events hosted in Nottingham. I joined the event for International Women’s Day in Nottingham Contemporary, it’s enlightening and good for making friends."
What does Social Sciences mean to you?
"We are the bridge between sciences and society, it’s our duty to understand people, work with people and remain professional."
What do you think of the support available from tutors and staff at NTU?
"Pay attention to the intro in the first week.
There is lots of support from NTU, but make sure you book in advance as there are usually queues."
Outside of the Lecture Theatre
Did you find it easy to make friends and settle in at NTU?
"Yes! There are a lot of social activities held by NTU, the Student Union, the accommodation team and other students. And there are friendly social areas in every building. But the most importing thing is everyone is friendly and wants to make friends."
The Next Steps
What’s next for you after NTU?
"I want to join the British Army and be part of the medical team. My ambition is to work in disaster relief and rescue."
How is NTU helping you to achieve your career goals?
"The skills I have learnt here are the most important thing, and there is an Army University Unit at NTU. NTU also has people with the same goal that we can work together!"
As an International Student
Why did you want to study in the UK?
"The UK has a long history with Hong Kong, so this decision came pretty naturally, I could get a VISA that allowed me to finish all the placement hours."
What experiences have you had as an international student at NTU?
"It’s a unique experience because I am the only international student on my course. That said, I settled in quickly."
What advice would you give to help new international students get settled in at university?
"Come early so you can recover from the jetlag before the intro week and activities. Be there for the intro week and the first week activities. You may not understand or not interested in those activity, but being there is very important. Just ask questions, people are there to help, and no one will remember your mistakes. You don’t have to be friends with everyone, talk to more people and then find your friends."
