We had a really tight-knit community on my course and I’m still close with many of them a year on. You rely on each other a lot in the MSc and there were lots of opportunities to make friends through group projects. There are a huge range of taught modules at the beginning of the course, so you learn a bit of everything. This breadth of knowledge is very useful to find a career. When you start your six-month research project, you learn to hone your skills and interests and that is where you find the drive for what you want to do as a career.

I chose Queen Mary because it provided me with a very fitting course and exactly what I was looking for. The course not only helped me hone my skills, but it also helped me realise my potential. The curriculum is designed in a way that helped me prepare for the real world and gain the knowledge I needed to attract the right opportunities. I have been able to gain a more holistic understanding and develop an international perspective of my subject.

I always wanted to study in London as it is a leading global financial centre and a city full of opportunities. While doing my research, I found that the courses offered by the School of Economics and Finance were among the best in the UK. Also, facilities provided by the School such as access to the Bloomberg Terminal, free subscription to publications like Financial Times and networking events with employers from top UK companies acted as a great aid to me.

After my business degree, I was a bit lost with what I wanted to do. Choosing to study a conversion course at Queen Mary was my first step in the right direction, as it gave me a clear focus. I was surprised by how much I learnt in just a year. Upon starting the course, I immediately realised how much I enjoy coding, and I really liked that the classes are tailored to beginners, as everyone was new to IT. Our lecturers were both patient and passionate about their subjects, which boosted my motivation to study, and the practical labs brought it all to life for me. Queen Mary has so many initiatives, societies and services to offer, that it is hard not to choose something amazing that will end up expanding your horizon!

I chose to study at Queen Mary because of the exciting research happening at the university, including in area of big data science. I chose this course because of the opportunity to be taught by experts in the field. I have enjoyed completing coursework for my modules, since this has allowed me to gain significant practical Python experience. My favourite module has been Neural Networks and Deep Learning. I have enjoyed learning about the different types of neural networks and also building neural network architectures using PyTorch.

I chose my MSc because computer vision was the most appealing field in machine learning for me, and Queen Mary has an excellent computer vision department. I most enjoyed my modules in Introduction to Computer Vision with Professor Andrea Cavallaro and Deep Learning and Computer Vision with Professor Sean Gong -they’re both fantastic lecturers, really knowledgeable and engaging. During my MSc, I gained important skills in machine learning and computer vision and experience conducting research projects, designing experiments and critically analysing academic papers. The video presentation I made as part of my research project got me the interview which eventually led to my role as a Computer Vision Engineer.

I am currently working as an AI Engineer in a fintech company. My role consists of NLP model retraining and the chatbot’s daily conversational review. I’m responsible for the natural language agents; fine-tuning and retraining the model based on production dialogue. Being able to successfully use and practice in the industry what I was taught at university has been very rewarding. As well as the knowledge that I acquired, Queen Mary helped to prepare me with hands-on practice, teamwork and industry experience

I can confidently say that the university has played a pivotal role in shaping my career. The knowledge, skills, and experiences gained from the university have been instrumental in my professional success and have opened doors to exciting opportunities in the engineering industry.

I wholeheartedly recommend Queen Mary's Advanced Electronic and Electrical Engineering MSc course to aspiring engineers who are looking for a comprehensive and challenging educational experience.

I was extremely impressed with the welcoming atmosphere, amongst the research opportunities Queen Mary provides, with the Russell Group title. The aero lab for instance, was extremely impressive, housing low speed and high speed wind tunnels, a flight simulator, amongst a workshop lab that gives students the opportunity to build or 3D print projects.

I had always wanted to be an engineer and I secured my place at Queen Mary via clearing. If I could go back in time, then I would put Queen Mary as my first choice on my UCAS application because I had such a positive and meaningful experience which still stays with me to this day. Overall, the five years that I spent at Queen Mary have greatly influenced and shaped the person that I am today.

"I was interested in the Sustainable Energy Systems course at Queen Mary as it concentrates on investigating renewable energy sources and technologies as well as addressing environmental issues... Obtaining an MSc in Sustainable Energy Systems from Queen Mary will broaden my horizons in this field and enable me to inspire and teach future generations while tackling energy problems in [my home] Gaza Strip, Palestine."

Mohammed N. A. Herzallah, Sustainable Energy Systems MSc, 2019

"Queen Mary has staff members who are world-leading academics in sustainability. I wanted to become part of the solution for the world’s energy crisis and do more research into it. The hands-on experience in the state-of-the-art facilities at Queen Mary gave me an invaluable insight into the world of sustainability and renewable energy storage. The interdisciplinary approach and the mix of engineering and research have helped me in my long-term goals of becoming a researcher."

Biomedical Engineering MSc, 2020

"As part of a group project, I had the opportunity to design and choose suitable materials for a prosthetic liner used by amputees. Our group presentation was judged by a representative from a world-leading company in designing prosthetics, Blatchford. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the creative thought process behind translating engineering principles to help rehabilitate certain parts of the human body. This opportunity also allowed me to organise a day’s work experience at Blatchford’s manufacturing site."

Moresche Bartley, Biomedical Engineering (Conversion) MSc, 2019

Being a student legal advisor at the qLegal pro bono clinic was an insightful experience that helped me a lot in my career and gave me an insight into how businesses operate. It is very rare to see a university giving students the ability to increase their commercial awareness through pro bono clinics. I also had the ability to develop transferable skills such as advocacy and communication skills whilst presenting a webinar. Gaining a deeper understanding of my specialisation helped me develop transferable skills such as commercial awareness that helped my career a lot. Thanks to this experience, the support of professors, and the Careers Team, I was successfully selected to attend an open day at an American law firm in 2020. This year, I was also selected for a competitive mentoring program at a Magic Circle firm that only takes ten people.

Mateusz chose Data Analytics as he loves analysing data and using Excel. The programme also offers a lot of choices, whether you want to know the theory or real-life practice. He enjoys the fact that he can use so many different statistical software such as R, SAS, Excel, Python etc. It is a very challenging degree, but very rewarding as you will learn how to programme. He would like to get into finance, pursuing a Data Analysis type job which uses Excel, maths and presenting and consulting. After 5 years he aspires to become a manager of a company or start his own being self-employed. If finance turns out to not be for him, he would probably come back to do a PhD and teach.

Stuti chose to pursue a Mathematics degree because she was inspired by the applications of Mathematics. She did Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics modules in her A-level and has always found it interesting. She has always liked to go into mathematical details of everything and loved learning the problem-solving skills that mathematics can teach. It opens up the mind to new ideas while working out beautiful solutions and proofs. The thing she most enjoys about her degree is constant learning and self-improvement. She really enjoys learning new things regularly and improving her skills.

My name is Aarushi Vaidya, I’m a Neuroscience and Translational Medicine MSc graduate, in 2021 from Queen Mary University of London. Having previously completed my Neuroscience BSc degree, I wanted to undertake the MSc to gain knowledge of drug discovery and the challenges of developing novel therapeutic approaches for neurodegenerative diseases.

The MSc programme was extremely beneficial for me, I understood the urgent need to develop novel therapeutic targets for neurodegenerative diseases from research-active experts in the field. I learnt about “bench to bedside” medicine, wherein existing in vitro and in vivo models of neurological diseases can be translated to clinical trials effectively. The neuro-oncology module was particularly enjoyable for me as we received lectures from leading clinicians and researchers alike. My MSc dissertation project aimed to assess the glial response in adenosine A2A receptor knockout mouse models compared to controls following a model of trauma haemorrhage shock. I specifically enjoyed the dissertation project because I gained independent laboratory skills including immunohistochemistry. Most significantly, I was working with extremely supportive lecturers and supervisors who provided incredible support and advice throughout the master's year.

I am currently a first-year Neuroscience PhD researcher at the University of East Anglia, developing organoid models of hypothalamic neurogenesis to study the roles of fibroblast growth factors. Undertaking the MSc dissertation project encouraged me to pursue a PhD as it equipped me with a strong set of laboratory techniques, as well as a realistic view of a research project. Completing the MSc programme inspired me to undertake a PhD as I thoroughly enjoyed the dissertation project and wanted to continue learning whilst contributing to leading research.

I wish to pursue a research career in neuroscience and want to work as a postdoctoral research associate in neuro-oncology or neuroendocrinology. I am particularly motivated to decipher the cause of paediatric brain tumours and consequently develop novel therapeutic approaches in the future. Alternatively, I also wish to work in drug discovery and target validation to contribute to developing novel therapeutic targets for central nervous system diseases.

My name is Laurence King, I studied MSc Neuroscience and Translational Medicine at Queen Mary University of London in 2021/2022. I had previously studied for a BSc in Pharmacology, graduating in 2017. Neuroscience was my favourite area of study in my undergraduate degree, and I wanted to refresh my knowledge of it as well as gain access to a wider range of jobs in the Bioscience industry.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Queen Mary and believe that the course gave me fantastic knowledge and experience of the complete process of developing novel neuroscience treatments, 'from bench to bedside'. The emphasis on translational medicine is a fantastic and unique benefit to the course and has helped me stand out from other job candidates in the translational medicine sector. There was sufficient range of module choices to cover all key areas of neuroscience, from Neuro-Oncology to Neurodegenerative diseases. I found the mixture of taught modules and a research project great, as I was able to apply the knowledge I learned from every key area of neuroscience into an independently planned research project whilst being supported by my supervisors.

I am currently working as a research technician in the translational team at the Cancer Institute at UCL where we process and analyse patient samples from ongoing cancer trials. We focus on CAR T cell therapy, a relatively new and innovative field in which patients' T cells are genetically engineered to recognise and fight cancer cells. I first learned about CAR T cell therapy in a lecture on Neuro-Oncology in which a consultant from UCL explained novel therapies in the field. I thoroughly enjoy my job and have no doubt that studying on the MSc was instrumental in me being hired. In fact, two of my colleagues also studied on the same MSc course.

I hope to carry on my career in the field of CAR T therapy and translational medicine by either studying for a PhD or getting a job in industry such as for a pharmaceutical company. The MSc course has opened my eyes to the niche and rewarding field of translational medicine and I hope to continue being a part of it by helping to inform clinicians of the best treatment options based on contemporary scientific literature.

The MSc in Neuroscience and Translational Medicine was an excellent degree, providing me with a thorough theoretical and practical grounding in the various exciting aspects of neuroscience research. The opportunity to complete a 12-week research project in the final term allows you to immerse yourself within one of the cutting-edge research groups at the Institute, and in my case, develop productive, long-term, collaborative relationships. Overall, the experience, mentoring and research output I gained through the programme helped me enormously in securing a clinical academic job on the specialised foundation programme for junior doctors in 2023.
