Balance your time between study and leisure life. Neither of these should be missed out.

Do you take part in any extra-curricular activities on campus or in the local area?

I engage in the football sessions and badminton sessions that LSU London organises every week.

Where are the best places to explore on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park?

The world’s tallest and longest tunnel slide, the ArcelorMittal Orbit, is just situated in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Standing on the top of the architecture, you can enjoy the magnificent modern view of London. After you get tired of the landscape, just enjoy the excitement of sliding. It is absolutely worthwhile to explore!

Do you have any advice to prepare students for the transition from undergraduate to postgraduate study?

Postgraduate study means fewer lectures but more study pressure, which requires the student to be more active in study. Lots of independent work needs to be done outside the classroom. The best way to achieve both academic goals and careers goals is to keep motivated and efficient.
