Studying music and philosophy at Nottingham opened up opportunities for learning which I never expected. The enthusiasm and friendliness of the lecturers enabled me to gain the richest understanding of every topic. In addition, I had the opportunity to study in Hong Kong for a semester which made my experience of university even more unique.
