Neethu Jacobs

BA Education 

Why did you choose to study with the School of Education? 

Neethu JacobBefore coming to university, I did a wide variety of research for my course and it was evident that the School of Education at the University of Nottingham had high rankings both academically and on student perspectives.

Also during a visit to Nottingham, it was made clear to me that the School of Education was a great environment to learn, something I am passionate about. The school provides a wide variety of opportunities from work experiences to social life. I was given the opportunity to become a course representative for BA Education. 

 
What has been the best part of your course so far? 

My favourite aspect of the BA Education is the fact that this is an interdisciplinary course; it covers education from a wide variety of perspectives such as sociology, psychology, history or even philosophy!

Also, the structure of the course enables you to build relationships both with your lecturers and other students.

The varieties in assessments means that you gain transferable skills such as team work, communication and self-confidence. 

 
What has been your highlight of your time at Nottingham so far? 

My favourite thing about Nottingham so far is the people I have met! Nottingham has enabled me to meet people from a range of countries. Also, the University of Nottingham offers a large number of societies and other opportunities that you can be part of. 

 
Have you joined any societies or taken part in any extra curriculum activities?

I have been to events which are organised by the Catholic and Christian society. It has been a great way to meet new people and share my faith. My favourite society is the sign language society!

 

 

Alice Humphrey

BA Education

Why did you choose to study with the School of Education?

Alice HumphreyThe main reason I chose to study at the School of Education was because of the small group size in lectures and seminars. The small size makes it comfortable to share ideas and participate in group discussions as well as receiving quality attention from the lecturers who are able to really get to know you.

 
What has been the best part of the BA Education course so far?

The best thing about the course is the broad range of topics it covers and the influences from other disciplines that affect education, for instance psychology, philosophy and economics. 

 
What has been your highlight of your time at Nottingham so far?

The best thing about coming to Nottingham is the opportunities to get involved in. From volunteering to sport as well as the multitude of societies – there is something for anyone and everyone. 

 
Have you joined any societies or taken part in any other extracurricular activities? 

I have joined the Scouting society which is great fun with weekly socials and the opportunity to volunteer with local scout groups. I have been camping which was a great way to make friends as well as take part in fun activities including archery and caving.
