Student Profiles

Ivana Vujovic

Ivana Vujović is from Montenegro and studied our MSc Applied Statistics in Health Sciences course after being awarded a Chevening Scholarship.

"Strathclyde is the best learning experience I've had so far. The University is well organised, student-friendly, and the quality of teaching is great. The level of dedication from the teaching staff to the learning outcomes is extraordinary.

Glasgow is a cosy, safe place and Strathclyde has the best position in town! Both the University and the city offer everything you might need. I've been in love with Scotland since the first time I visited. I was surprised by how friendly Glasgow is. I was expecting people to be nice, but not that I would feel as welcomed as I did!"

Rosalyn Fraser

Rosalyn joined the University in 2017, having completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Stirling.

"Studying at the university itself has been a fantastic experience. Everyone in the department's been incredibly friendly and approachable and I feel that I have been well supported with my studies here. At the beginning of the year, I was worried that I maybe didn’t possess the required level of statistical skills required for the course. However, following a two-week introductory to statistics module I felt a lot more confident! The modules contained within the course were always well organised and varied, with each class focusing on a different applied element of being a statistician. Even at the end of the first semester, I couldn’t quite believe how much I'd already learnt and how many new skills I'd acquired."
