Student Profile(s)

Subhi Alrubei

What did you particularly enjoy about your time at Kent?

I enjoyed every moment of my time in Kent. In terms of education, I enjoyed how the Computer Science teaching staff were very approachable and happy to explain and elaborate more if I ever asked a question on any aspects of the course material.

I truly enjoyed my stay in the centre of Canterbury where the people are lovely and friendly. I also enjoyed the history of the town and its location which made it easy for me to travel to London whenever I needed to, and to visit Europe, since the Eurostar operates from Ashford, which is located just within a few miles from Canterbury.

What were the most interesting things you learned on the course?

The University of Kent is one of the top universities in the UK and everything I have learned there was very interesting. The one module I had enjoyed the most was Computer Security because the subject was new to me and also the classes of Professor David [Chadwick] are at the highest standard any student could find anywhere in the world.

How did your studies help you achieve your personal goals?

Any degree from the University of Kent is very beneficial for any student in terms of finding employment or improving their career prospects. Personally, a Master's degree in Networks and Security will give me greater chances, in my present job, to progress to higher ranks and a better position, especially currently where the Middle East is engaged in the ongoing electronic war and cyber attacks which makes the demands high on every available and qualified person.
