Zihuan Zhang (MA Sociology)
"This MA Sociology course is amazing. I can tell that every lecturer has dedicated their very best and latest research into the modules. My lecturers introduced me to many decolonial social theorists, who were not included in the undergraduate curriculum. These two modules also happen to be the main modules of the course."
Humaira Anwar (MSc International Social Change & Policy)
"Given my work experience of four years in women's development and empowerment in Pakistan, I have chosen MSc in International Social Change and Policy in order to equip myself with modern methodologies and innovation in perceiving and analysing social problems, policies, research and anticipated impact."
Wendy Kim (MSc International Social Change & Policy)
"Through this course, I have learnt how to understand international trends and changes systematically. As my work involves creating short-term international programs for students, I must be aware of the international trends to develop programs which are intended to widen the global vision of our students."
Wadhha Al Busaidi (MA Digital Media & Society)
"I had lots of opportunities to learn, from the discussions with my classmates and the various modules delivered by highly qualified lecturers, to the opportunities to hear from guest speakers who were from different backgrounds over the world."
Lucy Jessop (MSc International Social Change & Policy)
"Having chosen to change career paths, I decided that completing a Masters degree would both equip me with new skills and give me the space I needed to find that alternative path."
Cameron Baker (MA Social Work)
"Be confident in your own values and beliefs, while being open to new and different ways of thinking and seeing the world around you. Challenge the opinion, not the person."
William Adams (MSc International Social Change & Policy)
"I think that this course will help me stand out against other candidates. I’ve developed my social science skills and combined with political concepts. I’ve had the chance to study a topic in depth over a year, which has developed my research skills, my time management and my desire to address international social change."
