    Graduation – November 2018 Moray House School of Education and Sport

    I love this University because of the academic staff. The open-mindedness that they have. I think for a Masters they kind of take you from where you are and where you want to go and they make sure that you get there. The most important thing is to learn how to manage your life, your learning. Take the most out of all of the resources that are available at the University. We get so much help from our professors. I enjoyed being challenged. It was great to have someone push back and push me out of my comfort zone and that’s what makes you grow. Keep calm. Contact your supervisors.…

    The Indian Education System

    Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes made of ticky tacky, Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes all the same. There’s a green one and a pink one And a blue one and a yellow one. God made them all differently, They looked anything but the same. Then the students in the houses All go to the university Where they are put in boxes And they come out all the same. And there’s doctors and lawyers And business executives God made them all differently, Now they all look just the same.

    SOTU 2016: Education policy beyond the Obama Administration | IN 60 SECONDS

    Together we’ve increased early childhood education. Lifted high school graduation rates to new highs. Boosted graduates in fields like engineering. In his last State of the Union address, President Obama mentioned that graduation rates in our nation’s public high schools are at an all-time high. He’s absolutely correct. Eighty-two percent of our public high school students graduate from our schools. Here’s the challenge. There’s also a rise in the number of students who enrolled in post-secondary education institutions with need for remediation in English Language Arts and Mathematics. That’s troubling. For one reason, President Obama say we should increase the number of engineers that we have in our schools. Well…

    Studying at the University of Adelaide, Australia

    What’s very special about the University of Adelaide is that students will actually be in contact with people who create knowledge it’s not just about the distribution of knowledge it’s also about the creation of knowledge. The University of Adelaide is the third oldest in Australia it was created 1874 and over the last few decades it has created a plethora of excellence. We are very proud of the 106 Rhodes scholars who have come through our rank and we also have been associated with five Nobel prize winners through either a staff or a student. It’s more than any other university in Australia can boast. Adelaide’s an absolute brilliant…

    Summer Graduation – Moray House School of Education and Sport

    Probably the best advice I could give is to just stay organised, stay on top of everything and work really hard. The most important thing that I learned is definitely overcoming any fears that I had and getting stuck right in and using all the support that’s available even when you think you don’t need it it’s definitely really important. The best advice I would give to an incoming student is to work your absolute hardest because until you leave University you have no idea how much time you have and how much flexibility you have to really get involved in lots of things as well as your course of…
