I chose to study at the University of Surrey because it had a beautiful campus and was close to London. The best thing about my course was the group learning projects, which were great learning experiences. I also enjoyed the balance of theory and practical learning.
Surrey has great industrial connections, which enabled me to access a great work placement. At Surrey I got to know myself much better and became more aware of my strengths, professional interests and passions.
I am now studying for a masters degree in renewable energy, specialising in wind energy. Surrey had given me a greater awareness of what my interests were by allowing me to explore what I thought I wanted to do. After doing a year in industry at Airbus Defence and Space I realised that my passion was not with space, but was with renewable energy.
