I went to Nottingham where I got to study for a semester one of the best law universities in England. It's good to break up a long degree with some travel. I had an amazing time – it was one of the best experiences of my life.
I went to Thailand with a group of 13 other UC students and we were able to experience every aspect of Thai culture – becoming friends with the locals, eating delicious food and seeing all of the attractions. We also explored the nightlife and had many overnight trips. It was an experience I will never forget.
One cool thing I've been involved with is Engineers without Borders. It’s an engineering aid organisation at UC that's part of a larger national group with a mission to connect, educate and empower people through humanitarian engineering.
I had a mentor when I first started. She talked to me about university life and showed me all the different clubs. That’s how I found out about volunteering. The lecturers are also very friendly. You can talk about study or about life in general.
I know that I'm going to get four years of very good education, taught by world leading researchers in the field. You learn how to problem-solve and work in a team – and you learn not to panic when you get given a problem you don't understand! The programme sets you up really well for your career.
