_____________________________________________

Why did you choose to study at Royal Holloway?

I visited the campus a few times before applying to universities and felt very comfortable in Royal Holloway's leafy and quiet environment. However, the main factor in my decision was the Psychology department's strong reputation in the UK.

What do you enjoy most about studying Psychology?

The best thing about my course is the encouragement to think critically and challenge currently paradigms in Psychology. In particular, I have enjoyed designing, executing and analysing complex research studies, which epitomise critical thought, right from the beginning of my studies.

What is your favourite thing about being a student at Royal Holloway?

I love the fact that everyone is so close to each other at Royal Holloway. There is never a day I travel to campus and do not bump in to someone I know. Further, the great wealth of societies and clubs, from academic to artistic to downright quirky, create a unique culture at Royal Holloway that I will greatly miss when I graduate in 2014.

What is the student life like?

My student life has definitely undergone many changes over the years. During first year, I greatly enjoyed the student hall experience and on-campus activities, such as societies and the student union. On the other hand, my third year has been greatly marked by challenging academics, working as a student ambassador and organising the 2nd London Economics Symposium, whihc is a big-budget student conference started by fellow Royal Holloway students last year.

What are your future plans and has your degree helped you achieve these?

After doing an internship at UBS this past summer my aim is to continue on a graduate scheme in banking after graduation. My degree program at Royal Holloway has definitely helped me in personal growth, gaining self-confidence through succeeding at challenging courses and meeting the right people, such as Royal Holloway
