    ONWUASOANYA CHINEDU, MSC MOBILE & HIGH SPEED TELECOMMUNICATION NETWORKS

    I studied Computer Science and Software Engineering at Informatics Academy Singapore with a pathway to obtaining my degree from Oxford Brookes University. The course is quite interesting. Some coursework are tasking but made me have the feeling of working in an professional organization as the software we used can be said to be of industrial standard. The lecturers were amazing too.

    The courseworks, meeting people from different nationalities, the social events and willingness by lecturers to assist students in understanding a great deal has been the best bits. If you are looking for somewhere not only to study are a high level, but also to meet people and explore your environment, then Oxford Brookes University is your right stop.

    GEORGE AOUN, MSC MOBILE AND HIGH SPEED TELECOMMUNICATION NETWORKS

    Before coming to Oxford Brookes, I’ve earned a Computer Engineering degree from Ecole Supérieure d’Informatique of Paris. I heard about Oxford Brookes University through my former French University, ESI of Paris, since they offer a double degree program where we can spend our last year of the engineering program in a foreign university. I chose Brookes for two main reasons: first, its ranking in the engineering field. Oxford Brookes is known to be one of most prestigious universities in Europe. Second, I was inspired by its interesting course offerings, of which I chose the Master Of Science in Mobile and High Speed Telecommunication Networks which I believed it will help me expand my field of expertise beyond Computer Engineering. The course goes over all the aspects of Telecommunications, starting from its early life as 2G and arriving at the 4G networks. More importantly, it will give you a very good start for a better understanding of Telecommunication systems, even if you had acquired only a little knowledge in this field during your previous studies in Computer Engineering. Moreover, the teaching approach used combines the theoretical and the practical experience simultaneously, which can help the student to understand the concepts learned in real life examples. The best bits of studying at Brookes is meeting people from all around the world, sharing ideas and spending moments with them. In addition, talking freely with the professors who were available all the time, getting their advice and benefiting from their professional experiences.

    I can advise any student to enjoy every course they take and enjoy their study, even if sometimes assignments could be challenging and stressful, believe me, it will pay off. And be grateful because all the courses taught in Oxford Brookes are well designed and prepare you very well for the industry world .I conclude this by an important quote that accompanied me during my whole education: “Success belongs to the most persistent”. After graduating from Oxford Brookes with a Master’s of Science in Telecommunications I wanted to discover more the world of telecommunication, so I applied to the engineering school INSA Toulouse, France to follow some a 6 months courses in Networks and Telecommunications engineering. Actually, I am working at the multinational bank “Société Générale” in Paris, France, as an integrator engineer in the division of API-PRJ in MKT/ OPM/ API.

    JUAN WANG, MSC COMPUTING

    Juan took the MSc in Computing and she is now doing a PhD in the School working on the PEPPER project. The PEPPER project brings together computer scientists, clinicians and industry leaders to create a personalised decision support system for diabetes management.

    Before I enrolled into Oxford Brookes University, I had some software tester experiences. However, I was not able to code, and knew little to software structure. As an Oxford resident who was not rich, I chose Oxford Brookes University rather than Oxford University as Brookes’ tuition is much cheaper. However, I soon felt this was a really correct decision after I started my MSc in Computing course.

    Brookes’ lecturers are not only highly skilled in academic, but also very responsible for students. Their support for students are comprehensive, systematic and goes in detail during students’ processes of learning knowledge. They are very experienced in dissemination knowledge through careful selected course contents, therefore enable students quickly understand the knowledge. They also maximize the chance of students acquire knowledge by consolidation, office hours, and other forms of extra help.

    I eventually achieved Distinction in my MSc graduation and was awarded the Prize of outstanding achievement in the Master of Science in Computing. Currently I am a PhD student of the School, being offered a studentship.

    ENRIQUE JUGON, MSC COMPUTER SCIENCE

    After four years studying IT in France, I took the opportunity to join Oxford Brookes' MSc course in Computer Science. The academic staff on the course were experienced teachers, with creative and innovative approaches to teaching. Learning and doing project work with such a diverse international mix of students was also really interesting.My year in the UK has been an incredible learning experience and I think this collection of people from diverse origins, countries and experience helps to broaden one's mind. The professional network I built throughout this academic year, as well as the deep understanding of telecommunications I gained from the MSc course, contributed towards getting the job I now have with Alcatel-Lucent. I am working abroad in Lome, Togo in Western Africa, on IP Core Next Generation Networks. Now is the time to really apply the theory to the practical reality of Africa!

    ALEXIS CHAVALIER, MSC SOFTWARE ENGINEERING

    Alexis comes from France and studied MSc Software Engineering full-time. He has been awarded the prize for outstanding achievement in the Master of Science in Software Engineering.

    Before I came to Brookes, I was doing an MSc in Computer Science at Supinfo International University in Lyon, France. My French school offered a partnership with Oxford Brookes and I decided to try a year abroad to study different subjects and improve my English speaking skills. My course was very interesting, every module had a direct relation to the field of software engineering and provided different approaches to their respective subjects. The lecturers were really helpful and their explanations and answers were always really appreciated.

    Being able to exchange and work with students and lecturers from many different parts of the world is very interesting and allows us to learn about different cultures and other ways of working. Along with the quality of the course content, this was one of the most enjoyable things during my year at Brookes.

    I am currently working as an independent software engineer and I will be working as a full time software engineer for a Switzerland-based start-up providing services related to crypto-currencies in January 2017.

    JULIEN CLAVERIE, MSC SOFTWARE ENGINEERING

    Before I came to Brookes, I studied a MSc Computer Science at SUPINFO, in Marseille and spent one year in San Francisco. Brookes offers a very good selection of modules and subjects to study in the realm of computing. I choose Brookes so I could focus my learning on software engineering after studying the broader field of computer science. The course was brilliant. Lecturers are very experienced and motivate you to deepen your knowledge and expertise, and always make time to help their students.

    Oxford is a wonderful city, I find its architecture and proximity to nature very inspiring. I think I had the best time living in a student accommodation (Clive Booth Postgraduate Centre), with flatmates and neighbours from all over the world; friends I’ll be sure to keep in touch with.

    A week after submitting my dissertation, I started looking for jobs online. I had edited my CV during the summer to accommodate the British marketplace with the help of Brookes Career Centre. I found a job in the city I was looking for within two months. I worked at a digital agency in Manchester called Degree 53 for almost two years; their clients include Betfred, Coop Bank, and Sky. Now I am still an iOS Developer but I work at Rentalcars.com, a much larger and more international business.

    ASHWIN PANICKER, MSC COMPUTER SCIENCE

    Oxford Brookes University is internationally recognized and I decided to do my Masters here because I liked the structure of the MSc Computer Science course. The course gave me the flexibility to pick from a large list of modules and complete the ones that I am interested in rather than forcing compulsory modules onto me. Considering the fact that I am an international student, making an application to the course and for scholarships from outside the UK would have been difficult if it were not for the support I received at that time from the staff at the University. On arrival at the University everyone really helped me get settled in quickly. In just a few days I started enjoying the atmosphere here in Oxford, which is filled with students from every part of the world, with different cultural and social backgrounds. I am really thankful to Oxford Brookes University for considering me for the John Henry Brookes scholarship and for the career growth opportunities that it has provided me.

    KURT DEGIORGIO, MSC COMPUTER SCIENCE

    Before I came here I knew Brookes ran a great course in motorsport engineering and that the Department had good links with the industry. On top of this, when I was studying there we had the opportunity to learn in a brand new building.

    I found the course really interesting. It was a lot of hard work but that aspect teaches you key values to take into industry. It was also incredibly valuable to have the chance to be involved in the Formula Student programme. My advice for others is to do Formula student as early as you can and as much as you can. Once leaving Brookes I landed a job at the Lotus Formula 1 team as a Graduate Design Engineer. Four months later I then moved to the Force India Formula 1 Team as a Junior Composites Design Engineer, which is where I currently work.

    I feel like Brookes played a key part in where I am today, so I feel it’s very important to give a little back after graduating as it may inspire more students to realise that their dreams are possible!

    OUSSAMA KAOUI, MSC COMPUTER SCIENCE

    I did a pre-Master's course at Oxford Brookes University. I chose Oxford Brookes because of the content of the course and the reputation of the city worldwide. I found the modules good, informative and well equipped with IT materials and software. A good atmosphere studying with multinational students.

    My advice for others would be ask for help if you need it. Studying Computer related subjects is not easy, you need to pay attention to details, progress cannot be seen immediately but needs time. Try to be organised and patient, follow good practices as much as possible. As a way of learning I would recommend buying books from Amazon in whatever subject you are interested in and read it from cover to cover, buy books that balance between theoretical and practical sides. I believe this is the best way to master any subject because you learn from experts in the field.

    After graduating, I’ve secured a one-year internship with TATA consultancy services in India. I will work as a Java Developer.
