LEVEL OF STUDY
A summer placement at Adaptix, manufacturer of innovative 3D x-ray imaging devices, was a great opportunity to develop hard and soft skills for Constantine Pelesis, who is now a clinical technologist in Singleton Hospital’s Nuclear Medicine Department.
One of the highlights of my PhD has been the eight-week placement I'm currently spending at Crossfield Fusion as part of the GRADnet programme.
The Braithwaite scholarship greatly eased the pressure and allowed me to focus less on the financial burden of the degree and more on enjoying what I came to Surrey to do: to further my knowledge of the subject area I wanted to make my career in.
The tutors are always happy to help if you have questions via email or after class, while students are encouraged to innovate and be creative during assessments and conduct research themselves under guidance.
University, both at postgraduate and undergraduate level, is what you make of it. Surrey is a great university to find lots of different things you’ll enjoy!
Many of our masters students progress on to a PhD in an area they’re passionate about, while others take up a wide range of exciting roles in industry. On graduation day, we caught up with Chutima Termsuk, who studied for our Medical Physics MSc and is now undertaking a PhD at Surrey in radiation dosimetry.
The course really helped prepare me for my future career – I apply almost every element of my MSc on a daily basis – and allowed me to make a wealth of useful contacts.
One of the things I enjoy the most about the course is the variety in the way we’re taught and assessed: we’ve had practical lab sessions and a clinical visit to a nuclear medicine department, alongside traditional classroom lectures.
The most enjoyable aspect of my course was the dissertation. I had the opportunity to do novel research in an area that interested me with a supervisor who shares my passion.
