Student Profile

Nada Issa

I had always wanted to be an engineer and I secured my place at Queen Mary via clearing. If I could go back in time, then I would put Queen Mary as my first choice on my UCAS application because I had such a positive and meaningful experience which still stays with me to this day. Overall, the five years that I spent at Queen Mary have greatly influenced and shaped the person that I am today.
