I have been blessed with the opportunity of continuing pursuing a doctorate degree at the University of Southampton after I finished my master degree here, whilst enjoying the creative benefits of integration with postgraduate activities engaged with different departments. However, I understand that postgraduate students have distinctive needs in their academic experiences, and their voices need a medium to deliver to the University. As one of the postgraduate students, I understand what our students' needs are and I understand how the necessity to convey our experiences to the University.
