The general atmosphere around campus and within the School of Geography was friendly and supportive, making it a good environment in which to learn and excel. There are so many opportunities to develop yourself and I took advantage of these whilst making lots of friends on the way. This was the perfect MSc for me as my goal is to establish a career in research and it provided the right stepping stone.

My course gave me the ideal preparation for the job I am in now, as it covered all the aspects of river monitoring and management which I am expected to know for my job.

I think the thing that surprised me most, was myself. From learning to deal with and overcome my anxieties, to writing a detailed and comprehensive thesis, I was challenged throughout the MSc process and was able to rise to each challenge and ultimately succeed with my work, which lead me into pursuing research at PhD level.

If I could go back and do it all again, I would. I have gained so much knowledge in only one year and didn’t want it to end! It’s such a great place to study, and the course was faultless. If you’re unsure, don’t be – just do it.

The MA from Queen Mary has allowed me to segue into my field of interest. I am currently working at The Citizens Foundation (TCF), a Pakistan-based NGO that provides education to more than 250,000 under-privileged children across Pakistan.

I was looking for a course that would help me explore global markets and development of international business and was particularly interested in the world economy and the dynamics of development. I figured understanding this would go a long way in building my foundation of working abroad.
