My campus tour
Watch my video tour of some favourite places to spend time around the Middlesex campus.
I have always had a flare for politics and government, administration and people. Having a BSc Political Science and an MA International Relations seemed like a good platform to provide a better understanding of the workings of government, administration and current global issues such as economic and human security.
I chose to study at Middlesex University due to its distinguished and top-notch tutors, taught programs, state of the art facilities, and multi-cultural setting and student body. But most especially for the chance to go on placement/exchange.
I loved the lectures, especially the ones on human security and the various forms of security as well as on foreign policy. The coursework’s were great, and I especially loved the fact that I was able to go on work placement in Switzerland.
I love the fact that MDX has a multi-cultural setting and worldwide mixture within its world leading staff and student body along with great research prospects.
In one of the cubicles situated in the quiet zones on floors 2 and 3 in Sheppard Library or the middle row in the group study area.
I love the fact that London is a multi-cultural city with loads of opportunities for connection with academics and professional in different fields.
I intend to work in higher education for a bit as a lecturer and then go into working for international organisations such as the UN; representing countries and in the international system as a diplomat.
A difficult one but I would say Dr. Peter Hough as he addressed the new security and human security succinctly during my time as an MA student.
Middlesex is a great platform for your vision. Once you have made up your mind, seize every opportunity provided by Middlesex.
Monday is usually packed with study, research, drafting and Judo practice. I wake up as early as 7am as I live near to campus. I get myself ready and head to the researcher's room where I begin my study for the day. With a few breaks here and there to release tension and I sometimes have meetings with my supervisors concerning my research. By 5pm, a few of us from the Salem Campus fellowship gather to pray and then evangel around the campus. Then from 6-8pm I head to Judo training. Most of my Judo team members have won medals from competitions so I look forward to competing and winning a few aswell.
Tuesdays are pretty much the same, an early rise, then to MDX before going straight to reading and redrafting or continuing from where I left off yesterday. If I have feedback from my supervisors then I assess them and redraft my research. And sometimes I prepare the sermon for Wednesday evening’s campus fellowship.
Wednesdays are great. Coursework is taken care of as per usual and meetings are held if any research drafts require attention. Later in the evening around 6pm, I head to arrange the room for fellowship which begins at 6.30pm. Here, we pray, sing and worship God. I usually give the sermon, then we close at 8.30pm and go home.
Thursdays are great as well. I sometimes get up as early as 6.30am. Most people from fellowship have a group call and we pray for the day, MDX, the country, family and friends, the world and ourselves. Later in the day after arriving on campus, I attend conferences which are relevant if scheduled for that day and join a few colleagues in discussions regarding studies, work and life. From 7-9pm, I head to Judo training. Feeling well exercised, I head back to the researcher’s room to round off the day.
Fridays are more relaxing as I come in later in the day at 10am. I then study for a while and meet up with colleagues and friends depending on who is available. I also just sum up every draft and research done during the week.
My weekends are summed up as helping out wherever I can with friends. I attend Church on Sunday morning. Later in the evening, I head to Bible training which is always very interesting. For the past 3 months we have studied Biblical Leadership and Growing towards spiritual maturity. I then head home, do my laundry if any is left, and prepare for a new week.
The lecturers have helped with the understanding of the basics as well as widen my knowledge base on international relations and the global system. I was also thrilled with the opportunity to undertake a work placement in Geneva for three months which was by far my most favourite time on my course.
