Research Exchange Student
Studied: Sept 2016 - Feb 2017
Aroosa Faisal studied at Middlesex University London as a postgraduate research student on a research exchange programme for 5 months.
For her, Middlesex University’s most obvious opportunities were academic; "It's excellent combination of lecturers, facilities and funding allowed me to work at the cutting edge of my chosen discipline. The research methods taught at Middlesex are worth learning."
"The University offered me the space to grow as an individual, to try new things and to meet new and interesting people. Middlesex is a place where you are never far from a new opportunity or experience. It has provided me with the opportunity to explore an array of different possibilities for my future, most of which I would not have been aware of without attending here. This, combined with their continual dedication and commitment to improve the quality of services to students, is what makes Middlesex so unique" explains Aroosa.
"For a Pakistani, it is tough to deal with the systematic life in the UK; it has truly been a very distinctive experience for me. The tranquility, nature and cleanliness of London is something that I really enjoyed discovering. I believe that MDX has made me a more confident and independent individual. It has opened doors that I never thought were available and let me experience things I never thought I could. I have been able to try new things and make new friends as well as discover knowledge in many things that I never knew interested me" said Aroosa.
So would she recommend Middlesex to other Pakistanis? "I would definitely recommend Middlesex University! Here you will have an opportunity to extend your knowledge not only in your study area but also in interpersonal communications".
