Why did you choose SSE?
I chose SSE for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the course I am currently doing was the primary reason for applying. I was looking for a course that equipped me with theory but also gave me practical experience of applying this knowledge. Thus, the course seemed extremely suited to my interest and aptitude. Secondly, the presence, participation and network of the school in the employment market also made it a very promising option for me. Finally, SSE's active student association is very rare for a masters program and that made the school and the experience more attractive for me.
What is your favorite part about being at SSE?
Every day, the school pushes you to challenge yourself, academically and socially but in an environment that is risk free and encouraging rather than competitive and hostile. This has motivated me to try and put in my best in every thing I've been doing, irrespective of the result.
Why would you encourage others to apply to SSE?
SSE offers a great combination of courses, student life and the experience of living in one of the most exciting cities in Europe. If the courses are suitable for a student this makes the college an extremely viable option financially, socially and most importantly a great place to learn. The size of the school also creates a close-knit network between the students and teachers, which gives you mentors and friends for life. SSE also offers you constant opportunities to interact with companies, participate in seminars that help with personal, academic and social growth.
