“I had the opportunity to undertake a postgraduate placement at Alstom, a leading global organisation that provides equipment and services for power generation and rail transport.
“The year-long sandwich placement within my MSc study involved looking after the company servers and network systems. I also had the chance to work on creating home share access for company users. As well as dealing with the daily IT issues, the role gave me the freedom to learn new things and create effective solutions for the computing problems within the company.
“The placement has given me the experience of working in a professional, industry-led environment. My past study in Computer and Information Science was directly related to the work I was doing. The placement opportunity enhanced both my skills and my CV and I hope to pursue this line of work in the future. It is a unique opportunity to learn from others and develop your professional life while taking postgraduate study.”

"Before I came to Nottingham Trent University I was working. I found out about the course through the hotcourses website and I definitely liked the ring to it.
"It's a very powerful course, it's really cutting edge as Cloud solutions are being rolled in to replace currently existing enterprise architecture models. It also covers some other IT spheres worthy of note, that may mean more stress, but it's worth it.
"I found out about the bursary on the University's website. The application process wasn't too complex. I composed essays amidst other things, poured my all into it, submitted before the deadlines and was delighted when I was awarded the bursary.
"The bursary has provided a stepping stone for me towards achieving my career dreams; otherwise I may not have been here, due to financial constraints. I will become a professional, due to the highly technical nature of my course, and someday, I would end up bringing fame back to the University's name.
"I have enjoyed Software Programming carried out in our really cool laboratories. Nottingham Trent University really provides a lot of facilities and is keenly interested in its student's futures. I look forward to the more Cloud related programs in my module, but I am enjoying every step of the way.
"I aim to be a general practitioner of IT, using IT methods in problem solving and re-inventing already existing platforms in technology solutions in order to create better fit."
