My motivation for postgraduate study stems from the admirable research-based facilities at the University of Birmingham, for example the Centre for Human Brain Health. Furthermore, I wanted to be taught by and work with well-known lecturers in my field. The staff at the University of Birmingham have years of experience and research within their field, providing excellent teaching.
What, for you, are the best things about the course?
The best thing about my course is working in the Centre for Human Brain Health. It has access to many different brain imaging techniques such as EEG, MEG, MRI, TMS and more. It enabled me to put my knowledge of brain imaging into practice. Another thing I love about my course is the (optional) frequent research seminar discussions. They allow students to learn more about the current research going on within different fields of Psychology and Neuroscience.
What piece of advice would you give to anyone considering postgraduate study in your field?
Don’t chose to do a postgraduate degree for anyone else other than yourself! It’s a big step up from undergraduate study and requires a lot more independent study. If you love what you study, it doesn’t feel like a burden!
