University experience and life
Michelle, an international student from Malaysia, was offered the Vice-Chancellors scholarship to come and study at the University of Hertfordshire. She attributes a lot of her success to the University and the opportunities she was offered as a student here.
She says that aspects of her course helped to develop skills relevant to the industry, including mini projects which helped her to practice management skills before graduating. 'I learnt a lot about the different stages of managing projects - from early development, to completing within a deadline. I was able to transfer these skills to my job.'
However, the passion Michelle's lecturers bought to her studies was the most memorable thing about her time at the University. 'The best thing about my course was the lecturers. They were very passionate and supportive lecturers who ensured we understood what we were learning and how to put the knowledge we gained into practice.'
She also adds that she embraced every moment of her student life and explored new things, including volunteering, to help make the most out of her time at university.
Future career plans
