How was your housing?
Housing was amazing. It was super central and it was close to the other students and really easy to get everywhere in the city. It was so easy to get around and to walk to everything that Edinburgh had to offer. Everyone was so helpful, it’s was a key part of what made it such a great experience.
How was your supervisor?
My supervisor was amazing. She was great. She gave me a lot of freedom in the research to focus on my interest areas and aligning those with the overall project goals. In addition to that, she was another great resource on places to see in the city and the area. She was just fantastic.
Would you recommend the program?
I would 100% recommend the program, I wouldn’t have been able to get the experience on my own, it made it so much easier and it was such a smooth process.
