"I studied Neuroimaging for Research.
What I enjoyed best was the flexibility of the programme; I could pause, I could take a break and I could return, I was allowed time to interrupt my studies at certain times, so that really helped me with my work, family, schedule.
I chose this programme because of the content of the course materials. Very superior & very relevant to what I do, so I greatly encourage anybody who has any interest in imaging to do this programme.
The best part of studying online is it works with my personal schedule; I can travel and still be studying, I could have my lectures downloaded on a PDF while on the train and I’m studying, I could multitask & the flexibility that it gave me I think is very, very good.
I chose Edinburgh, because Edinburgh has a reputation of having the best materials, the best professors & very supportive environment and atmosphere for learning.
I recommend this programme for different reasons. It is great if you want to get that advanced knowledge in neuroimaging & if you have interest in research, you will get everything you need, you will be equipped to carry out your own research independently, so I highly recommend this programme.
The online experience gave me good interaction, starting from the lecture materials, to the group; I could leave feedback in the group page, I could email privately if I wanted & I would get a response, so there were different levels of interaction that were very supportive for me.
Before the programme, I was very confused about research; I did not quite understand what it took to select a project material & research your need & present it scientifically. But, after this programme I feel very confident that I can independently carry out research, in neuroimaging."
