Can you tell us a little bit about the programme in your own words?

“My programme is taught at CUBRIC, the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre. Hence, it is a vibrant place in which every week a researcher from other universities (from Oxford, London, or even Germany) comes to teach us about their new findings or research methods. Half of the lecturers of the programme are physicists and the other half psychologists, and among the students there are psychologists, an engineer, an anatomist, a biomedical scientist… It is certainly a multidisciplinary and exciting environment that will give us the best preparation to be in the future good neuroscientists.”

What did the Postgraduate Taught Scholarship mean to you?

“It meant the recognition of my past academic achievement and a push to a future career as a neuroscientist.”

What were your motivations for undertaking a postgraduate degree?

“I decided to undertake this degree because as a future PhD student it is becoming more and more necessary to hold a Master’s degree and I felt nowadays you really need the preparation, especially in such a multidisciplinary field as neuroscience.”

Why did you decide to do your postgraduate degree at Cardiff?

“Because among the different options, Cardiff seemed a nice and friendly place, and at the same time, it is at the forefront of neuroimaging research.”
