I have been a full-time Mechanical Engineering student at UWS since last four years and as a non-European international student, I have enjoyed every day of it. I have lived in the University’s accommodation and the staff and faculty couldn’t have been more helpful from the very first day. It also helped me enhance some of my skills like being able to do tasks at my own initiative, have met and socialised with people with almost all corners of the world and have learnt about different cultures and countries.
I am also a part of the amazing Student Ambassador team of the University. The job provides me opportunity to develop my communication skills and a chance to help others every day. Also, since I’m passionate about UWS, it allows me to do something beneficial for the University and fits perfectly around classes.
This year as an undergraduate student, I have got a chance to do a fairly costly research project which is funded by The Royal Society of London under the supervision of University’s very experienced Lecturers. We have done a lot of practical work at UWS and I can see myself applying the knowledge from them in my near future.
Hence, I am very proud that I chose University of the West of Scotland a place for my higher Education.
