Student Profile

Amrutha Sankar

Graduated in 2022

How did you make the decision to study at Strathclyde?

Strathclyde offered unlimited opportunities for enhancing my learning experience. The Nanoscience course attracted me as I have always wanted to study Nanoscience. I heard about the scope of Nanoscience even during my graduate days. The applications of Nanoscience are wide and the study of small particles and their special characteristics always fascinated me.

What did you like about your course and Strathclyde?

The experience was really good, and it provided an opportunity for my overall growth and development. It offered insights to different applications of Nanoscience. Also, there is an option to choose research in different areas of Nanoscience like Nanomedicine, Fluorescence spectroscopy, Microscopy, Semiconductor and spectroscopy.

Excellent classes and support by the faculty members helped me to understand the multidisciplinary aspects of Nanoscience very well. Professors spared no effort to make the classes interesting and innovative. Plus, the experimental facilities are world-class and can provide every opportunity to carry out excellent research.

Everyone was so helpful, friendly, supportive and always kind. They were always willing to spend time answering our questions. The department of Physics provided immense support and guidance and they took time to address our personal and health issues.

What specialist knowledge/professional skills did you develop whilst studying the course?

I learnt knowledge of the subject, writing and research skills, computer skills and it also helped me to improve my English speaking.

What are your ambitions for the future and how do you think your time at Strathclyde will help you achieve your goals?

I want to pursue a research-based career. Strathclyde has given me an opening for that.

How have you found your time living in Glasgow and what's your favourite thing about the city?

It was superb. People in Glasgow are friendly and helpful and Glasgow has lots of tourist attractions.

What would you say to anyone thinking of coming to study in Glasgow at Strathclyde?

Strathclyde is a very friendly and supportive environment. You will feel at home here. I feel really fortunate to have got an opportunity to study at Strathclyde. The whole year spend at Strathclyde was a turning point of my life and I will be grateful always.
