"In my search for a UK university I found City - obviously one of UK's best Departments of Sociology with its multi-disciplinary research areas"

Why did you choose to study at City, University of London?

I was attracted to City because of its vibrant research culture. In my search for a UK university I found City obviously one of UK's best Departments of Sociology with its Mulch-disciplinary research areas.

What have you enjoyed most about your course?

I enjoyed my lectures with the very inspiring scholars/staff who are always enthusiastic about helping their students develop independent skills to face future challenges squarely. I also enjoyed the robust collection of library resources. To crown it all, Antonella Yarnold and Diane Bell are ever so helpful.

What has been your favourite module and why?

It is difficult to choose one as all the modules have been quite interesting, stimulating interest and engendering critical reflections on social issues. I will however say the icing on the cake is Theories of Race and Ethnicity. The module brought home practical issues of everyday struggles around the world and provided insight into how to overcome the hatred, anger and conflicts we face all over the world. Dr. Malcolm's illustrative presentations and innovative lectures also made the course very outstanding. I also enjoyed Contemporary Criminology and Rationale & Philosophical foundations of social research.

What has been a highlight of your course so far?

The speed with which the programme is running on schedule and all the knowledge so far acquired mark out the Postgraduate study as a self-propelled development which will rub off on how I continue to develop my skills and respond to issues in future. I am happy I came to no other university but City University London. I am also happy that during this period, I was able to effectively represent my colleagues as well as championed the establishment of the City University London Students Union OXFAM Society along with a few other students

What do you plan to do after you graduate?

I plan to return to work and start a PhD shortly.
