Student Profile(s)

Dr Lalith Wijedoru

I had one of the best years of my life doing the MSc. I met some amazing and passionate colleagues, and some inspirational and experienced teachers. Some of the LSTM staff have continued on to be a mentor to me in my research over half a decade later so these connections cannot be underestimated. Neither can the friendships of my colleagues. The best thing about the MSc was the overseas research project. I really cannot stress how actually doing the whole process from concept, to ethics, to designing consent forms and executing and analysing things was just brilliant. I am forever grateful for the opportunity.
