Working with the top risk experts in the UK really is the highlight of my MSc. The knowledge shared was immeasurable.

I chose to study at the University of Southampton as it has the top Risk Research Centre in the UK. This means that I get to learn from the best academics and professionals that are in the risk area.

My Southampton highlights include scoring the highest for a quiz for a module in the first month of classes. Organising a trip for 50+ students from different parts of the UK to come and visit Southampton and find out more about Titanic was incredible.

I was Course Representative for my cohort, participated in University Challenged, worked for the Student Union at The Bridge and also Cafe, Honorary member of the Worshipful Company of International Bankers (livery company in London), dinner at Mansion House.

The experts that were my lecturers were a particular highlight. The knowledge shared was immeasurable.

Exposure to different areas of policy making and supervision in the capital markets. Also working with senior people in the industry despite being quite new and earning their acknowledgement and respect.

My advice to current students is to come to Southampton with an open mind. The approach taken by some lecturers requires you to think differently so an open mind will help you to learn better and faster. Start with the right attitude and willingness to learn. That will set you on the right path. Also, try to find a good mentor/manager that will help guide you in your career.
