I’m currently working full-time while pursuing my master’s degree. The master’s degree courses offered in UM mainly lectures at night, which makes it easier for me to cope with my work. The professors and staff in the faculty have been understanding my situation and the difficulties that could be faced, such as deadlines and missing out on lectures due to work constraints. My colleagues are also very supportive and helped me out a lot in course works and projects.
Overall, all the people I’ve met in UM throughout the year have all been charming persons with open minds appreciating different opinions and discussions. Personally, I also enjoy refreshing myself walking around the campus while having a chance to look at the gorgeous architects.
I count it all joy to have had an exposure studying abroad (University of Macau). The course instructors were very accommodating and supportive. Being a foreign student with zero mandarin proficiency, the teachers ensured I appreciated and grasped the contents of the lecture in English. I had financial support to cushion me throughout my stay in Macau working as a TA or RA. In summary, everything regarding studying for my MSS-Criminology and Criminal Justice were at my exposure (e.g. the ultramodern library) and for these, I recommend studying at UM to friends and family.
I currently work at St. Martins Catholic Hospital as a Laboratory Technician due to my previous experience, but I have applied to the Ghana Immigration Service and waiting for the outcome. Looking into the future, I intend to apply for my Ph.D. and realise my dream of becoming a lecturer someday.
