I have gained transferable skills such as debating, presenting and critical evaluation."
"When we talk about our experience at our university, we automatically think of our friends, the facilities or the environment but for me, the memories I’ve made at NTU surpasses everything else. I am lucky to have made amazing friends and met amazing tutors over the course of my degree and I will definitely cherish them. It made my experience living and studying in foreign country even better. So, I don’t regret choosing NTU as my university."
"Based on my experience, they were all amazing and incredibly approachable. I consider my tutors to be one of the best part of my time at NTU. I received overwhelming support – whether it be in the form of words of encouragement or help in assessments. They have played an essential role in my educational and personal growth at NTU and I cannot be more thankful."
"Truthfully, it was a difficult change seeing as it occurred during the crucial part of my final year. We were months away from completing when lockdown, as well as, many other unprecedented things happened, and that restrained my access to physical resources. Hence, it was a struggle to rely on electronic readings because that would require good internet connection and I am sure many do not have the access. However, the university adapted well to the change and that, of course, helped me in adjusting myself with regards to having virtual meetings with my tutors."
"The transition to remote teaching occurred during my final year, classes were already slowing down as it was a term where the students had to start focusing on their dissertation and many of their other assessments. Fortunately, it was a smooth transition so I was able to access the guidance I would have expected prior to outbreak."
"In my perspective, this course has been eye-opening because now I am able to analyse the causes and effect of particular events or occurrence in the political sphere. However, it also requires a lot of patience as you will be facing different perspectives, some of which that has never crossed your minds. This course is definitely worth it especially when you are passionate about politics."
