My Masters programme has helped me identify skills in myself that I never knew I had... my critical thinking skills have improved enormously and now I feel more confident.

Why did you choose to come to Edinburgh?

One of the reasons I liked the idea of studying in the UK was for my family, going to Canada or America is too far. Here, my parents can just pop in and out if they wanted to come to see me, and it’s easy to get back home.

I applied to Edinburgh Napier just two weeks before the deadline and that was it. I was like, I guess I’m going to the UK!

How did Edinburgh Napier handle your application process?

It was easy-peasy, I went through a lot of stress applying to other countries or universities, but Edinburgh Napier made it so simple for me to apply. The process was quick and I got responses as quickly as possible when I had questions. 

Edinburgh Napier made it really easy for me and they provided all the information that I needed for the process as well, so it was a good, easy process for me.

Where do you hope your Masters will take you in the future?

My Masters programme has helped me identify skills in myself that I never knew I had, for example critical thinking. I remember when I came here, I didn’t understand it or why it was so important. But, through my Masters, my critical thinking has improved enormously and now I feel more confident to actually go beyond management. 

I’m actually now looking into becoming a teacher. Because of that confidence that I have gained from my Masters programme, I feel like I am limitless, I can do whatever I want to do now.

My Masters programme has actually given me more than just academic development. It has made me a more mature person.

How do you feel about teaching as a career?

I feel very excited about teaching because I found that I actually enjoy teaching others. I had opportunities to help classmates throughout my Masters project and it has helped me realise that this is what I want to do.

What would you say to someone who would be looking to study a Masters?

I would want the person to ask themselves ‘why’ first. Why are you studying a postgraduate?

And once you know that reason, do it. A Masters grows you. You mature beyond your comprehension, so do it!
