In addition, I enjoyed the discussion classes, in which my classmates and professors discussed many interesting topics.
Outside of the classes, the University of Kent offers places for indoor and outdoor activities. The historic city of Canterbury is also very pretty. There are plenty of attractions I loved to visit such as Whitstable, Canterbury Cathedral, and historic buildings."
How does postgraduate study differ from undergraduate study?
"An undergraduate course offers the principle of economics in general while a postgraduate course offers more mathematical and in-depth theory. However, it is good to study in general with a variety of modules in a degree to give general ideas in terms of economics, then narrowly specialise in the field you are interested in for postgraduate.
Undergraduate study is less individualized, but postgraduate study consists of a small number of students, who have a good background in economics. Discussion groups are offered to improve logical thinking as well as discussion and presentation skills."
What are you doing now and what are your plans for the future?
"I am currently working as an economist at the Bank of Thailand. My responsibility is analysing the economic situation and assessing the current and medium term economic trends together with preparing and developing macroeconomic indicators.
I plan to gain experience as an economist. Then, if I have a chance, I would like to study more in the field I have worked."
