I decided to study at the University of Surrey because of the course modules and the expertise of the lecturers. The course also included the opportunity to visit a hospital for a learning session, which was a highlight of my time at Surrey. The best thing about my course was its interdisciplinary nature. I was able to develop my research skills and I now feel like I can compete with any researcher around the globe. I was also able to learn and study with people from around the world.
At the moment I am working as a lecturer at Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University in Lapai, Niger State, Nigeria. The wide range of transferable skills I gained at Surrey really played a big part in me securing this role. My advice to future students would be to try to identify their areas of interest, as this will help influence your future research or career.
