City University London was recommended by a friend, and while here I enjoyed the opportunity to meet new people from around the world.

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

First of all the degree I've pursued is not available in Israel, secondly I chose City since the specific course was recommended by a friend who studied here.

What do you enjoy most about your course?

The balance between the practical and theoretical aspects of the studies. I also enjoy meeting new people from all around the world that attend the course. Good people!

What has been your favourite module and why?

Requirements Engineering. It was taught by Professor Neil Maiden, who I think is an excellent lecturer, and I found the subject itself very interesting.

What do you plan to do after you graduate?

I plan to find work in the UK and gain some practical experience in the UX field.

Anything else about City, University of London?

I was fortunate to be an active part of City's interaction lab, in which we conducted user testing sessions for commercial clients as well provide UX consultancy services. We also supported City students with relevant academic projects that require the use of our facilities. The position in the lab equipped me with valuable experience which I'm sure will come in handy in my career.
