My degree programme was amazing. Each module opened up a new world to me; the most helpful for my current activity was 'Machine Learning and Data Mining', as well as my MSc project. Right now, I'm focused on writing the paper for a journal publication, which follows on from my MSc project, and completing PhD applications.

Current position: PhD student, The University of Manchester

I chose the University of Manchester because it is among the top 100 Universities in the world. In addition, the wide range of courses which it offered in the field of Computer Science, specifically Artificial Intelligence, was extremely interesting to me. The School has active research groups led by well-known scientists, where I could effectively pursue my studies and achieve my goals.

The best thing about the University of Manchester is the number of international students; it’s a great opportunity to get familiar with many people from different cultures and lifestyles from around the world. In addition, I experienced the happiness of sharing knowledge with others. It is indescribable how willing the staff, lecturers and professors were to aid and guide students to learn, and it really impressed me.
