My experience of lecturing and presenting my research work during my PhD holds me in good stead when I am required to present my company's novel technology on the world platform.

I chose to do my doctoral study at the University of Wolverhampton because of the exciting research project on first year undergraduate experience.

It matched my research interest perfectly as my Master degree study was about educational leadership and innovation. Being a doctoral student at the University of Wolverhampton is one of the most memorable experience of my life. My supervisors were extraordinarily supportive and caring, which not only helped me build up my research skills but also enhanced my personal development. The guidance and training received while doing doctoral study prepared me well for job hunting after graduation. Currently I am doing program evaluation work in a non-profit organization in Canada, contributing to local community building with the knowledge and research skills developed through my PhD study. Being a doctoral student can be an intense journey. Try to live a balanced life and remember to reward yourself along the way.
