The UK has a big academic history in social security and social policy which meant that I can get the most appropriate and necessary skills at The University of Nottingham. Moreover, the international outlook and the modules of the course also fully meet my expectations and played essential role in my decision.

Coming from a Post-Soviet country causes me to take some time to adapt the western education system. This is mostly about gaps in writing skills. But I am doing my best to tackle this and definitely enjoying the learning process with experienced professors and rich academic resources.
