Student Profile(s)

Humaira Anwar

Given my work experience of 4 years in women's development and empowerment in Pakistan, I have chosen MSc in International Social Change and Policy in order to equip myself with modern methodologies and innovation in perceiving and analysing social problems, policies, research and anticipated impact.

One of my modules in the course of study is about Brexit, I first opted it due to my curiosity of knowing the phenomenon but the more I delved into it I have found it very interesting specifically knowing that how a simple decision has wide implications on the country's social, political and economic landscape. Apart from my course, I’m loving my life in university and city, both of the places have tremendous experiences to offer and I have just begun to explore and feel. Yes! Cold weather and endless walking are not really my best suite but I will soon get used to it.
