I love playing games, so I taught myself how to design and develop them– I even wrote the music! I landed a job with a games company, but I needed to know more to take my career further.
So I applied for a Masters at the University of South Wales. They considered my workplace experience, and offered me a place on their Games Enterprise course.
I had great support from tutors and used amazing equipment, and now I'm a full-time game designer. All I had to do was jump back in.
After my undergraduate degree, my career path took a wrong turn, and I found myself working in an industry that I had no interest in.
I couldn’t quite get to where I wanted to be, and I knew I needed to advance my skills to get there. That’s when decided – it was now or never.
I jumped back in to my studies and enrolled on a part-time postgraduate course in Marketing at the USW.
I’m now a marketing executive travelling the world for my work!
I’ve had a passion for music since I was little, and I’ve always dreamed of producing music on my own record label. But after I finished my degree, I realised I needed a little something extra to get me there.
So I decided to enrol on a Masters degree at the University of South Wales – it was the perfect next step. I worked on a studio album and had amazing support from my tutors, who really built up my confidence.
Everything just clicked!
Back home in India, I played by the rules and started a career in science. But my passion was football, so I came to USW to study football coaching and work in the sport that I love.
I stayed on to do a Masters in Sport Leadership - I've gained technical knowledge and learned skills from great football managers and experienced tutors. I see postgraduate study as the gateway to your chosen industry.
The more experiences you have, the bigger your network will be.
After working in the computing industry for 12 years I decided to make a change. I needed to develop my knowledge if I wanted to progress but I was scared it was too late, that’s when I decided to jump back in.
Enrolling on a postgraduate course in Computer Systems and Security at USW. Now I’m working towards my Doctorate, researching the latest worldwide 5G network.
And there I was, thinking I’d be stuck in the same old job forever!
