MSc Project Management
Where are you from?
Why did you choose to study at Northumbria University?
I found a scholarship here. I was planning on going to Australia and studying there, but when I was looking for scholarships, I found one at Northumbria University London. I decided to apply, everything ran really smoothly and then I came here.
I also had a look at the modules for the programme and they looked really good. Plus, I had always wanted to come to London.
What has been the biggest challenge about studying?
Well, for starters, I thought coming to university was going to be quite hard as I don’t like writing.
It was a really big decision coming from my job to study here, but I was willing to study. When I found this university and the scholarship I thought it would be great because I have always wanted to practice the language more. I did learn English about 5-6 years ago, but I forgot everything and wanted to learn it again.
What do you hope to do with your qualification once you finish university?
I don’t know yet. I really want to stay here in London, but it depends on whether I find a job or not. I hope I can find a job here that’s in my field as I used to work as a Civil Engineer for a French company in Colombia.
Would you recommend Northumbria University London to others?
Yes, I would. I really like our lecturer, Phil. He has a lot of experience and has taught me a lot.
The environment in the campus is really good, too. It’s so easy to make new friends.
I have also heard from others that the Advanced Practice option for the Masters programmes here is really good too.
