The main reason I chose the University of Surrey to study my degree was due to the course itself. The MSc in Business Analytics is really well designed and teaches both relevant and practical skills. It links business to data science which, in the era of big data, was exactly what I wanted.
The course gave me a wide range of useful tools for solving a wide range of business issues, such as machine learning. Machines can do so much deep analysis for humans nowadays. I enjoyed studying machine learning the most, and I am now studying for a PhD in machine learning at the University of Aberdeen.
Studying at Surrey drove my deepest desire to gain knowledge. It instilled in me the virtues of hard work. My graduation ceremony was one of my happiest memories from Surrey.
