Why did you choose Strathclyde?

I found that during the open days, Strathclyde had a friendly and welcoming atmosphere - it felt just right.

What did you enjoy most about your course?

The staff were excellent at providing me with extremely useful knowledge throughout my degree. They were supportive throughout, and encouraged me to take part in as many opportunities as I could. This included a summer internship with NATO in Italy, followed by a semester abroad in France.

What would you recommend about your course to prospective students?

Don't take all the opportunities for granted! Listen to the staff and take time to know your peers.

What would you recommend about Strathclyde to prospective students?

The staff are unique in the sense that they are genuinely interested in your learning experience.

Do you think enough females study courses in science? If not, how do you think more females could be encouraged to do so?

I would say there is still a lack of females studying in the science department. I believe this stems from high school. So, perhaps something along the lines of science workshops specifically for females would be beneficial for getting more females involved with science. 

What do you hope to do now that you've graduated?

I have a PhD lined up to study earthquake nucleation.

What's the best thing about studying at Strathclyde?

The community of the University is excellent - especially in the Physics department. Staff are available for questions when needed, and are more than happy to help. My five years at the University have been a truly rewarding experience, and I can't wait to further apply all that I have learned to my future work.
