Tell us about your educational and/or career journey since you graduated from Brunel?

After I graduated from Brunel I flew back to Thailand and secured a role as Lecturer in Public Health very quickly because I had a qualification in English - so it’s thanks to Brunel that I received this opportunity.

What does a typical day at work involve for you?

Normally I teach public health at undergraduate level mostly and also do administrative work in the faculty as well.

What’s been the highlight of your career journey so far?

I've been promoted to Deputy Dean within 2 years of the role. This shows me that others in the organisation have agreed to choose me to work in this position because I work hard and I can communicate in English very well.

How would you say your Brunel experience has helped you to get where you are today?

Mostly, I would say the language skills, as communicating in English is very important to me - especially if no one else can and we need to talk with foreign nationals, I will be the one to communicate for them.

Why did you choose to study at Brunel and why would you recommend Brunel to others?

That's very easy to answer. Firstly, everything is just great to me. I sent my application, paid my tuition fee, and found great accommodation all by myself, and it's not difficult at all. During my studies it was even easier because you have friends and there are nice staff that are always willing to help you. I never hesitate to recommend Brunel to others.

What is your best memory of studying here?

Actually, there are lots of best things because I attended so many activities. There was diversity in the course and we all became friends so easily. I even started to plan to continue my studies with a PhD at Brunel, but sadly because of Covid-19 I needed to stop the plan.

If you could give one piece of advice to current Brunel students, what would that be?

I would recommend them to stay in university accommodation where you can to start a great community and make new friends from others countries. Hang out with your friends - there are so many great restaurants nearby and it’s a short trip to get to central London.

What would be your top tip or key advice for new graduates as they begin their career journey after leaving Brunel?

Try to keep up your connections with your classmates. I think it's a very good thing to keep talking to your friends all over the world. That's amazing I think.
