            • 2012-2013, Master of Science (MS)

              One of the best experiences in my life. This university definetly changed my perspectives and helped me improve my critical thinking. Longing to go back and improve my studies.

            • 2013-2014, Master of Science (MS)

              The University of Edinburgh, the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences was the best environment to foster research ideas and to nurture the desire to achieve excellence. I had the honour of meeting great minds, people who influenced their field, such as Dr. Robert Logie, Dr. Sharon Abrahams, Dr. Candice Morey, Dr. Rob McIntosh. They have inspired me to see the psychological phenomena through the eyes of an explorer, and with the help of Dr. Adam Moore I have the statistical tools to interpret what I uncover. It was the most intense year of my studies so far, but definitely the most rewarding!

            • 2014-2017, Master of Science (MSc)

              The online learning environment is flexible, easy to navigate and rich in diverse and relevant course materials. Through the University online environment, I have access to exceptional talented tutors and a vast pool of peer reviewed journals. It is the first and so far the only university offering an MSc in One Health. This is the place you deserve to be.
