Fresher 2.0

In my previous post, I mentioned how I was quite anxious about studying and living in London. A big factor was the fact that I was going to study in Imperial, a world-renowned university, and wondering whether I'll be able to cope with the academic pressure. Another reason was the fact that my postgraduate study is very different to my undergraduate study.

Now that I have finished my induction week and started my course, I'm enjoying the idea of living and studying in London more and more. Our course director told us that they received around 700 applications and how we were the selected few. This reassured me of my academic capability, since I was not chosen by luck, but rather by my ability and the potential they see in me. Contrary to before, I'm excited by the fact that my postgraduate study is very different to my undergraduate study, as the course is really interesting.

The best thing about being a Masters student is how you already know what university is like. Recently, I watched this video and one thing I found useful was how he said that 'you never find a place like university where everyone is willing to socialise'. Despite feeling really nervous and very awkward about making new friends, I'm more willing to take that step than not at all.

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do."
