My academic life in the UK
By: Zhandos Mussabekov, MSc Supply Chain and Logistics Management
Today's thoughts outloud about my academic life in the UK.
Studying at Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) is a great challenge as you have to be a very disciplined and concerned student to make the most of everything that it offers to us. I really like that about studying here - it means that anyone can find and learn a lot of beneficial insight to build better skills for their future. For example, WMG holds many extracirruclar activities, events and workshops and seminars outside of the modules which are great to get involved in. After attending workshops and seminars you will get even more motivated as you always meet professionals who are one step ahead with the current trends in life. The similiar experience is about industrial visits where you see real-time jobs done. As for activities and events, you become more sociable and it's about networking and building connections - which is a fantastic oportunity for us as students.
WMG aims for a very modern and exceptional approach in the education sphere, which makes it unique. The University of Warwick is amongst the top 10 UK universities, and within the top 100 in the world. For a relatively young university, I see that as a fantastic achievement.
Moreover, there are lots of clubs and communities you can join; the sports centre, language centre and many other opportunities that you can make the most of. I am really happy I made the choice to study here, as I feel that the university takes care of its students. Recently, together with my family, we went to the WMG Master's Open Day as my wife is also thinking about studying for her Master's here! She was excited about the prospect of studying here next year!

I am from Kazakhstan and I a member of the Kazakh society at Warwick, which is a very friendly society that organises meet and many get-togethers throughout the year. Whatever your interests, there are lots of brilliant societies to join at Warwick.
