Student Profile


As an international student, I felt welcomed into the programme even before I landed in London. I personally found communication with course directors straightforward and helpful throughout my journey of receiving my postgraduate from Kingston University. The course itself was a good balance of theory and practice whilst encouraging independent studies. As a student who was also working part time, I was given the space to pursue a dissertation inspired by my employer, which ultimately led me to a permanent position after receiving my degree. Understanding methodologies such as design thinking during my time at Kingston has helped me throughout my career as a product manager. By having a comprehensive knowledge of user experience of both research and design, I am able to lead and collaborate effectively with designers and researchers in my organisation and have no trouble leading my own usability testing sessions! Pursuing this program had also inspired me to become a member of UXPA-UK and eventually led me into a leadership role on the board of the organisation.
