I had come from Singapore, a vibrant cosmopolitan country almost 7000 miles away from Glasgow, to pursue my aspirations in Podiatry. GCU stood out for the provision of weekly clinical placements that take place in conjunction with lectures, throughout all four years of the degree. Having this as an integral part of the course appealed to me, as it gives us insight into the requirements of the profession, scope to consolidate our clinical skills and brings to life the theoretical knowledge that are taught in lectures.
As the slogan goes, People Make Glasgow, and this is very well-embodied by the members of staff who go the extra mile in their duties. In GCU, opportunities abound to further your personal development. I am involved in the Student Leaders Programme and work as a Student Mentor, providing support to students on campus and beyond in the community. I was the vice-president for the Christian Union in 2014 and am a member of GCU Mountaineering Club.
Since coming to Scotland, I have been captivated by the rugged yet absolutely incredible beauty of the Scottish landscapes and can’t wait to embark on my next adventure. I have met some of the most amazing folk here in Glasgow, and I am thankful to be a part of this remarkable city.
