"The things I like most about being a student at Edinburgh Napier is the Universities environment and facilities."
The things I like most about being a student at Edinburgh Napier is the Universities student environment and facilities. The JKCC library is open 24 hours, meaning I can do the best that I can all the time and I am not restricted to a schedule. The campuses are compacted which mean my days run smoothly. For example, the labs are just beside the JKCC.
"The staff are very friendly and there is a lab technician around all the time to help if I need to ask any questions."
The staff are very friendly and there is a lab technician around all the time to help if I need to ask any questions. I also took advantage of the support services that the University offers and saw a CV doctor who was so friendly and helped me with updating my CV. It was extremely beneficial. The Edinburgh Napier staff fully supported me when I returned back to Edinburgh after I had some problems at home. They provided support and guidance on how to return to my semester and continue doing my dissertation.
As an international Taekwondo athlete, I have been able to participate in multiple championships with ENSA, who constantly offer support. I am also part of the Edinburgh Napier elite athlete programme who help fund my fees and transportation costs. In the effort for me to become better at Taekwondo.
"The advantages of being a student at Edinburgh Napier is having the opportunity to work with the latest technology in the market."
As a child, I always admired electronics, especially computers. Therefore, I found my passion for electronic systems, especially smart systems and robotics. The advantages of being a student at Edinburgh Napier is having the opportunity to work with the latest technology in the market, with labs completely full of assembly lines and robot arms. As a masters student, the importance of gaining both theoretical knowledge and practical skills throughout the course is evident. I am developing new innovations and my professional skills so I am a knowledgeable engineer after I graduate.
"I have chosen the best city to complete my studies"
Edinburgh is the best city for students. It is full of history and culture, and it is not a crowded city. I like the environment of the city, it makes me think creative all the time. The Highlands and Isle of Skye are beautiful, it is simply paradise.
"Choosing to continue my studies at Edinburgh Napier was a big step towards achieving my professional goals."
My long term goal is to be a professional engineer with a bright mentality whilst helping to make the world a better place for people. Choosing to continue my studies at Edinburgh Napier was a big step towards achieving my professional goals. All of the lecturers provide excellent guidance and knowledge and if possible I would like to further my studies by doing a PhD.
