What was your experience studying at Edinburgh Napier University?

I am delighted to say that I have now completed my Degree BEng (Hons) Electronic and Electrical Engineering. There are many factors that brought me to Edinburgh Napier University among them, I would find better opportunities in the UK than in my country. Also the opportunity to study Engineering and make my dream and my father’s dream come true and become an engineer.

During my 4 years at Napier, I have had the opportunity to study with students from all over the world. I have learnt a lot about engineering principles and techniques from experienced lecturers at Napier.   The extensive knowledge many of them they have has encouraged me to follow their path.

In my third year at Napier, I had the opportunity to work as a Mathematics Peer Tutor and a Mathematical Ambassador under the supervision of Dr. Kate Durkacz. I have improved my communication skills and ease in relating to people from different cultural and social backgrounds and I have made lots of friends.

Studying at Napier University together with the reward I got whilst tutoring have given me the chance to find my strength in teaching maths and the inspiration to teach maths for my career.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed in any way to the completion of my degree. I thank all the lecturers, the university staff, and my fellow students who provided advice and offered support.

What are you doing now?

I am currently volunteering as an IT Tutor in Edinburgh helping adults within small groups or with individuals to improve their IT skills. My duties include teaching IT, providing appropriate support and educational information and advice where necessary.
