I am researching the positive part of the quantum enveloping algebra of type G2.
I chose to study at Kent because the School has expertise in the area I am interested in, so I was able to find a supervisor here. I also received a scholarship from the University for my studies.
I think that the relationship between research students and staff is good here. I also like the supervision arrangements, the learning environment, the fact that there is an office for PhD students with computers, printers and other learning materials, and there’s a kitchen. As well as the School facilities, the University’s Templeman Library is excellent.
It's always exciting to have the opportunity to study outside your home country and I am enjoying the learning environment and the whole experience.
It's been great; I’m very pleased so far.
Postgraduate study is not limited to the lecture room and requires a lot of maturity and knowledge. It's also relatively flexible.
Having a postgraduate qualification further develops your skills and helps to set you apart in the job market. I am planning to work as a lecturer or as a post-doctoral researcher and I think my studies at Kent, particularly the research skills I am developing, will help me to achieve that goal.
Kent is one of the best places in the UK to study for a research degree. Its supportive environment helps to build confidence and the staff are respectful.
