A truly unique educational experience
I completed an MA in Global Citizenship, Identities and Human Rights through the University of Nottingham's School of Sociology and Social Policy. I chose to study at Nottingham because of the great recommendations I received from friends. Also, the MA programme itself appealed to me because it combined a unique multidisciplinary approach in analysing various elements of globalisation.
As an international student, the scholarship helped greatly in making studying overseas not only achievable, but made the quality of my study that much greater because it lessened the financial burden upfront and allowed me to enjoy my time in the UK more by freeing up money to see and experience more of the UK than I otherwise would not have done.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Nottingham. They city is perfect to live in as a student, the campus is beautiful, and the international emphasis of the University (both in students and faculty) really brings together such a diverse blend of perspectives and backgrounds and provides an educational experience that is truly unique. My advice about settling in to life at the university would be to get a big jump on your studies early. There will be so many club nights, pub crawls and student society things to do throughout the year that it's better to get a jump on your studies early. Also, if you're looking to work, one of the best places to look is the facilities department of the university itself.
