Entry year


Why I chose Surrey 

I chose to study my course at the University of Surrey because of the university's excellent reputation in my field. The university has consistently ranked among the top institutions in the UK and globally, and I wanted to be part of a program known for its academic excellence.

My course

I am incredibly passionate about my course as I love is the depth of knowledge it offers. The subject is not only fascinating but also intellectually stimulating. It challenges me to think critically, analyse complex concepts, and delve into the intricacies of Data Science. This depth of understanding is not only enriching but also essential for making a meaningful contribution to the field.

The academic staff in my faculty are highly knowledgeable and passionate about their respective fields. They bring a wealth of expertise and real-world experience to the classroom, which greatly enriches the learning environment. Their dedication to teaching and mentoring is evident, as they are always accessible and willing to provide guidance, support, and feedback. 

My life here

I am actively involved in several clubs and societies at the University of Surrey, and they have greatly enriched my Surrey experience. The university offers a diverse range of student organizations, and being a part of these groups has allowed me to develop new skills, make lasting friendships, and contribute to the vibrant campus community.

The best thing about living in university accommodation is the convenience and sense of community it offers. You're just a short walk away from classes, the library, and all the other academic facilities. This means you can sleep in a bit longer, avoid the hassle of commuting, and have more time to engage in academic and extracurricular activities.

Looking ahead 

After completing my postgraduate course at the University of Surrey, I plan to pursue a career in Data Science. My primary goal is to find a job or research position that allows me to apply the knowledge and skills I've gained during my studies. I also intend to continue my professional development through networking, attending conferences, and staying updated on the latest developments in my field. In the long term, I may consider further academic research, or potentially, I may explore opportunities for entrepreneurship or working in a leadership role within my industry.
