On my registration day, a young, energetic man walked into our lecture theatre. He was in his mid-thirties, dressed very casually. He swiftly unloaded his boxes of materials on the table and started to address all of us, “Welcome to this MSc programme…” I, among many others, was very surprised when I realized he was the course director! I must say I was impressed by the friendliness shown by the teaching staff and the department. I was pleased to be able to learn in such a friendly and relaxed environment and am sure that this helped a great deal in my course of study.
The diversity in student life offered at Bristol is also worth a mention. Students are from all parts of the world, and this blend of international students enabled me to have a more international outlook and was helpful in my pursuit of studies in international relations. I’m lucky to have been able to do my MSc here in Bristol-where the university is basically located in the city centre-it is a lovely place to be, indeed. There’s much more to it than just student life. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the Hong Kong Convocation for their sponsorship that made my study here possible.
