Sameer reflects on his time at Liverpool Hope University
Sameer says: I graduated with MSc Computer Science (Graphics and Interaction) to learn current and new technologies and how to implement them in today’s dynamic market. I chose Liverpool Hope University on recommendation from my sister who was a teaching student here. I am very happy for the recommendation as it is the best place for me.
It is hard to describe Liverpool Hope…my first impressions was that this place is awesome! The campus is in a really lovely setting. The natural environment is like nothing else in the whole of Liverpool and it is the only university with such a beautiful atmosphere. The library is excellent, although with my computing hat on I would like to see the computers serviced more often!
Studying an MSc is not for the faint-hearted! I had to take my studies very seriously. I was a bit of a bookworm in order to be able to keep up with the workload which meant that I often had to spend my weekends on academic work. The lecturers were outstanding. My favourite part of the course was the Human Computer Interaction (HCI) module taught by Dr Hissam Tawfik. He is a real genius. I thoroughly enjoyed his lectures and learnt a great deal from him!
My best memory of Hope is the graduation ceremony. It was such a proud feeling to go to the stage to greet the dignitaries and receive my MSc degree, with my lovely wife cheering me on. When exiting the hall the entire gathering was applauding till the rain had to pour mercilessly! Very typical British weather!
I am now looking for a permanent position in a well reputed firm, and further in the future I want to come back to Liverpool Hope to study for a PhD.
Sameer’s advice for new students to Liverpool Hope
1) Make friends with everyone!
2) Share your free time and your study time with your friends. You can help each other along the way!
3) Stay focused – you need to concentrate to achieve your goals!
Liverpool Hope University says: Sameer was a great contributor to the MSc group and joyful to have around. He will certainly shine in the future and we wish him the best of luck in his future career. Plus we look forward to him coming back for a PhD!
