Graduate profile

How are you feeling now that your time at Abertay is coming to an end?

I have mixed feelings now that my time at Abertay is coming to an end. I am so proud to have finally finished but also nervous about the future. The last four years I have always known what I was doing and where I would be. However, now it is all very unknown and that is scary!

Why did you decide to study at Abertay?

I like that the university is known for offering alternative routes of entry to its courses. As someone who left school never thinking university was an option, Abertay really appealed to me and made me realise that getting a degree could be possible.

I also really like the fact that as Abertay is a smaller university, it feels more personal. As someone who came from a small island, a smaller university suited me perfectly.

What were the highlights of your time at the university?

One of the biggest highlights of university was definitely meeting people who I know will be lifelong friends. While it may sound clichéd, another highlight was finally completing my dissertation. Throughout the first three years of my time at Abertay, I never thought I would be capable of completing my fourth year but here I am.

How important were the staff towards your experience?

The staff were massively important to my experience of university, especially during my fourth year. My year group was relatively small compared to other courses, so it really felt like the lecturers got to know us and really did want us to reach our full potential. Also, all the staff are so knowledgeable and passionate about their different areas of expertise. It really shows in their lectures, which is hugely encouraging. Although I might not have thought so at the time (well, I definitely didn’t), I really enjoyed writing my dissertation. Not only was the research interesting and relevant but my supervisor was so supportive.

Having a good supervisor really influenced how I felt about my fourth year without which it could have finished a lot less positively. So a big thank you my supervisor!

What’s your long term ambition?

I am not completely sure what my plans are now, especially with the current pandemic situation. However, I do know that in the future I should like to use my degree to help and benefit others.
