            2010-2014, Master of Science (MSc)


            Although conscious that education and knowledge should enlighten and change, the opening gambit on many a course, the time spent at City continues to astonish me and those closest, personally and professionally. The professionalism and support seems distant but scratch beneath the surface and there is a bountiful supply of career academics, magnates of media, technical wizardry and bright sparks in business. The university has opened my eyes and changed me, taking me to a level I only witnessed previously.

            I had a fantastic time at City, particularly when writing my thesis. I had great professors and a supervisor who guided me very well. It’s also important to note the excellent work done by the people at careers centre, they bring on great companies and prepare you very well.
