Why did you decide to study Mobile Computing and Communications Networks at the University of Leeds?

I chose to study Mobile Computing and Communications Networks at the University of Leeds because of the course content, especially from the mobile computing aspect. To begin with, I was unaware of this course, until I began my search of MSc courses that are in my field of interest, and then I looked up the University of Leeds website. I was very excited when I found my course, as it fitted with my previous experience from my student internship and final year project. 

What has been the best aspect of studying on your course and at the University and why?

The best aspect of studying my course so far is the quality of the facilities that are available here. The computer labs with PCs are equipped with different operating systems such as Linux, Windows and Mac. The 24 hours access the MSc Study Room in the School of Computing is available for MSc students to use exclusively.

Furthermore, the recordings of all the lectures and materials are available online.  

What does Leeds as a city have to offer students?

I think Leeds as a city has a lot to offer students and the campus of the University is close to the heart of the city. There are many nice student accommodation in Leeds, most of which is within easy walking distance from the campus and with good transport services all around the city. 

What Experiences at Leeds do you think will help you in your future career?

One major experience that I have gained is the ability to meet my deadlines. Although the course entails working under pressure most times, I am still able to carry out the work required. 

What are your ambitions for the future?

I looking at a career in Software development particularly Mobile Application Development. 

What would you say to students coming to do the same course?

Mobile Computing and Communications Networks is a great course if you're interested in App Development, Communications Networks, or even Distributed Systems. The staff in the School of Computing are very supportive and the University of Leeds is a great place to study.
