In 2018/19, Amy is in her 4th year of our BSc Cognitive Science programme. In her third year she told us about her student journey.
Year 4 Profile
I wanted to take a STEM subject that suited my abilities but I also wanted to study something new and Informatics (especially the AI and Cog Sci aspects of it) was the perfect combination of these things.
I love Edinburgh. I felt more ‘at home’ here than the other universities I looked at. I enjoy the sense of community. Even though it’s a large university, you really do get to know people well through your courses and through societies.
What do you do for fun?
Any tips for prospective students?
If you are starting here as a student, take time to enjoy yourself – you’ll do much better if you rest and take time to do things you enjoy than if you just try to work really hard constantly.
