I chose to study at Loughborough University because the programme was exactly what I wanted to study. The rankings of the University in the UK and worldwide were also a reason to study here. I knew about all the amazing facilities around the campus and the Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology (CREST), which is one of the biggest in Europe.
As part of my programme, I particularly enjoyed the first semester which enabled me to focus on one subject and really get into it; the rhythm was perfect. The small amount of people in the class and the proximity with the lecturer was very pleasant. The research project was exactly as I was expecting - challenging and interactive. The quality of teaching is very good, with challenging coursework and exams which at the end makes you proud to have completed the degree.
For my research project, I worked in CREST with Nigel Monk and John Barton. I was testing electric pressure cookers and their behaviour under different conditions; it was challenging and very interesting. I worked with Nigel and John to understand the process; they were amazing. If you choose to study this programme, you will make the best choice of your life.
