"Before I started this Masters, I studied Chinese and such a diploma can only lead to teaching, which I didn’t want to do. I wanted to do something more specific.
The best things about Glasgow’s programme of study are that you can choose options in different areas of study. (For instance) In the first semester I chose an option in Sociology. Studying in a Scottish university is quite different from studying in France. I like it better. In France you just get to go to class and sit and listen to the teacher and you just have to learn everything they say. I think it’s much better here because for every class you have to prepare, so we have to read two articles and discuss their points of view and it’s more interesting and more fulfilling, so it’s better for us to learn things that way, and at the end we have to write an essay showing what we have learned.
To prospective students I say "Go for it!" I love Scotland it’s great. I love haggis and all that! I know it sounds stupid, but it’s true, and Glasgow is quite lively. There’s a lot of things going on, a lot more than some people tend to think. There are a lot of societies as well you can join."
“I studied Chinese economy before, but I wanted to study another area, such as culture or history, and this programme provides these courses. I learned multiple viewpoints and ideas about China, especially the political system.”
