The Alan Turing Building gives a great impression when you first walk in. It’s so unusual to find a maths department building with natural sunlight and all the staff were helpful and friendly.

 

How did you decide on your degree choice? What appealed about Manchester?

I wanted to do a course in applied mathematics without becoming too specialised and Manchester came highly recommended.

What were your first impressions of the University and the city?

The Alan Turing Building gives a great impression when you first walk in. It’s so unusual to find a maths department building with natural sunlight and all the staff were helpful and friendly.

What are you most enjoying about your course?

The opportunities it has given me; with industrial sponsorship for my dissertation I've been given an interesting topic to work on as well as some extra cash.

What skills and attributes do you think you have gained from your course and co-curricular activities so far?

Much more confidence in my mathematical ability. The transferable skills module gives good experience in mathematical modelling of real problems and talking to the industrial partners provides an interesting insight into how the course material is used.

How do you think you are benefitting from studying at Manchester?

Manchester has a lot of industrial partnerships giving great opportunities.

What advice would you give to students considering applying for the same course that you took?

Going to the informal seminars can be very useful when it comes to applying courses to the modelling projects and your dissertation. It’s also a good idea to plan your time well and talk to the PhD students, some of whom will have done the same course.
