Why did you choose to study at Queen Mary, University of London?
Good reputation on academic research and student support; the modules in the programme offered also fitted my expectations well.
What did you enjoy most about your time at QMUL?
As expected, the lecturers were not just very knowledgeable but also very approachable. Further research, work and internship opportunities are well conveyed by them as well. The facilities are great and access to various formal/informal activities and opportunities are available.
What was the most interesting thing you learnt during your studies?
I enjoyed learning theory and how it affects and thus relates to all the other subjects. It’s like learning about atom. from a non-academic perspective, maybe becoming a course rep; having to talk and bridge people from different parts of the world with different backgrounds and views. That was definitely fascinating.
What did you think of the social atmosphere on and around campus?
Queen Mary in itself has sufficient recreational facilities. The east end is definitely a different face of London; not something that people would see in posters, but it has huge potential.
What extra-curricular activities did you participate in?
I was involved in the Indonesian student association in London (PPI London) as Chief Co-ordinator of the entrepreneurial department. As a first-timer in London, I found adapting to the city so much easier once I'd made friends, especially with fellow Indonesians. The entrepreneurial department was a place where I could contribute, apply the knowledge I'd learnt, sharpen my skills and also widen my network.
