    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum is quite updated and relevant to the present. We have an option to takeup research projects based on the modules we pick. First year, we have to take compulsory courses, however, for the next years it is upto the student to pick courses.

    I only applied to two places in the UK, one to The University of Manchester and one to University of Sheffield. I choose Manchester even though I could have gotten £2000 or more (depending on my acceptance) scholarship in Sheffield offered my course department. The reason for choosing Manchester was because it had more reputation and ranking, but more than that, because of its research in graphene nanomaterials (Graphene was discovered at The University of Manchester in 2004). I had done my undergraduate project in graphene in Aligarh Muslim University and hence, I was more interested to work further on graphene in my masters. I choose the course, Polymer Materials science and Engineering because I was working in the polymer industry and I was interested to increase my skills in the polymer research field.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course had 6 modules or subjects and one dissertation. The subjects included, Control and Design of Polymerisation, Structural and Mechanical Properties of Polymer, Polymer Characterisation, Polymer Processing, Surface Engineering and Materials Design and, Advanced Composite Materials (open elective). My dissertation was on nanocomposite coatings. The classes were interesting and the lecturers were were very friendly, encouraged questions and very ready to listen to doubts. The course was delivered mostly on screens and also lectures were recorded so a student could access them anytime they want. Because the course is just one year, it was a bit hectic and there would be assignments almost every week and then exams only at the end of the semester. Because the plagiarism was not accepted, I had to make sure all the assignments and writings are my own with little help from other if required (originality was a must). This is good because it made me learn more and get better understanding of each subject. Each module had one or more labs where we would apply the theory learned in class into practice so it also helped in better understanding of the subjects. We didn't had to do internship. I did get a chance to work at the National Graphene Institute (it's part of the university) because of my dissertation and that helped me in knowing about the cutting edge technologies around graphene.

    Course Curriculum :

    On having the background my IB diploma, first year is fairly smooth flowing and gave me time to adjust into the city and the university. Second and third year, students have a choice to pick their subjects therefore, the level of difficulty is up-to the student. Several courses are accredited by accountancy bodies, this very helpful as you can skip certain exams for official accounting qualifications such as the ACA and ACCA.

    Since after taking my high school examination, my goal was crystal clear to crack a language proficiency exam so that I could get admission in a reputed international university without losing a single chance. I got 78% in my 12th examination. Among a number of instituted I applied to, I got approval from this university.

    Course Curriculum :

    According to my perception, the level of content I had gone through during my course was unexpected. Initially It was difficult for me balance myself with the pace of the course but by the time I overcame my weak points. I had learned about the new developments in the field of management and also I developed here the appropriate practical and transferable skills.

    I heard about this college while attending a seminar in my high school. Although, I applied to several universities and got acceptance letter from many of them but I opted for this one over the rest. My academic background had been average through out my schooling but since initial standards of my school, I had been good in english. So it was average in terms of difficulty level to get admission here.

    Course Curriculum :

    In my course, I had segments which comprises of the blend of mechanical, electrical and nano technology streams. I learnt here the techniques necessary for the design and implementation of such intelligent mechatronic systems.
