Human Resource Management

Looking back at my year at the School, I must admit that the experience at the University of Edinburgh by far exceeded any expectations I had before. From the support teams to the teaching staff, everyone was not only very welcoming but they invited you to raise any questions and provided the best possible support to help you make the most of your programme. Additionally, the Student Development Team provided excellent and personal advice in the form of career and personal development coaching.

What was the highlight of your time at the School?

I cannot pinpoint one specific highlight. I would say that it was a combination of things – living in such an amazing and culturally city as Edinburgh, the vast amount of networking opportunities and the friendships I made. The University has an international environment that allowed me to share my ideas with people from all over the world and build an international network. It was an amazing professionally and personally enriching experience. If I could do my Masters again, I would without hesitation apply to the University of Edinburgh.
