Let's Talk Education: Student Spotlight - Postgraduate Master's

Posted in: 2024, PVC Education Vlogs

Since taking on my role as PVC Education at Bath, one of the things that has brought me the most joy at work, is meeting and connecting with members of our community to talk about the key issues in education.

'Let's Talk Education' is my approach to capturing and sharing those conversations with our community.

Earlier this year, I was delighted to attend a Postgraduate Scholarship Reception event at the Roman Baths, brilliantly organised by our student recruitment team. I came away feeling inspired by the calibre of our Postgraduate students, and their decision to choose Bath as the place to continue their studies, over all the other options available to them across the globe.

In this chat, I sat down with Sabrina, from Taiwan, and Steven, who grew up in Bath, to hear all about their Postgraduate Master's experiences. Despite their very different previous experiences, subject specialisms and onward intentions, they were united in their enthusiasm about the quality of education here, the support available to them, and their excitement about their planned next steps.

They shared with me what they think makes education at Bath special, their top tips for prospective students considering Master's study and what they wish more staff knew about their journey. I also got the lowdown on their preferred supermarkets, campus eateries and favourite places to relax with friends. It really was a treat to spend time sharing in their reflections on the year so far, and to be able to spotlight the diversity and talent we're so fortunate to have within our Bath Postgraduate population.

I'd like to warmly thank Sabrina and Steven for being part of the video, as well as all those involved in making their experience here such a rich and positive one.

We're entering an intense few months for our Postgraduate Master's students, whose hard work on dissertations and final projects continues once the Undergraduate students head off for the summer break. I know many staff will also be working hard to support them through this important time, and hope this video reminds you of the impact you make in doing so.

I'll close with a reminder for our Postgraduate students of Sabrina and Steven's advice - seize every opportunity, and reach out for support as you need it - we're rooting for you, and wish you every success!
