My student experience
“Looking back at my time at Surrey, I realise just how much I have developed, not only as a researcher but also as a person.”
"When deciding to pursue a PhD, I wanted a supervisor who understood what I wanted to do and was prepared to guide me all the way. I got this from Professor Rosalind Malcolm during our very first meeting, before even applying, and throughout my stay at Surrey.
She and my co-supervisor have been everything that any research student could dream of and for this I am very grateful to them. They have made my decision to come to Surrey worthwhile.
My Surrey qualification provides me with the platform on which to build a very successful career, not just in academia but in a wide range of other roles. I want to continue to develop as a researcher, and my qualification from an institution with an excellent employment record such as the University of Surrey will definitely help me achieve this objective much more easily.
Looking back at my time at Surrey, I realise just how much I have developed, not only as a researcher but also as a person.
The skills I have developed and memories I have made will remain with me for the rest of my life. All this is thanks to the people – the teaching and PhD colleagues, supervisors and support staff – and the facilities available that make the campus such a great place to be."
