A university’s reputation, availability of research tools/infrastructures and presence of renowned academics in relevant areas of research were top priority for me in choosing where to do research. The quality of supervision judged by accessibility/support of supervisory team was also significant. To this end, I emailed a number of possible supervisors to see, which will respond promptly and will demonstrate keen interest in my research proposal. It was my current supervisor that met these criteria.
Since my arrival at Brunel 2 years ago, my experience has been amazing, more than what you will ever imaging reading about the university online. The research community in my institute is very warm, a haven where everyone is ready to help. My supervisors are very supportive, the best every research student would like to have. There is a wide range of training and professional development programmes offered by Brunel, so much so you wish you have more than 24 hours a day to benefit from all. I have head different paid and voluntary leadership roles (Facilitator, Ambassador, Space surveyor, etc.), which roles have developed in me entrepreneurial/professional skills that will handy when I set-up my firm. I have also sat on a number of student–staff liaison committees to represent my peers and influence university’s policies that affects them.
This is my Brunel. Join me today and taste first-hand, the exciting research experience that Brunel offers.
