Sara, a 3rd year Theoretical Physics student from Germany, explains how she enjoyed learning foreign languages at the University of Edinburgh, and reflects on how this could help her in her future physics career
Cameron Berry, MPhys alumni who graduated in summer 2019, talks about his student journey at the University of Edinburgh.
Why did you choose Edinburgh?
Applying to Edinburgh for me was a very natural fit considering half my family is Scottish. I had visited Edinburgh multiple times and it was only a short train journey from home. As I visited the city and University in the lead up to applying, I felt sure it was where I wanted to end up. However, I really couldn’t have known what a ride it would be studying here for five years!

Last summer I was given the incredible opportunity to intern with the School of Physics and Astronomy’s Equality and Diversity (E&D) team to develop their new website and wiki.
As this was my first ever job as a developer, I came into it not really knowing what to expect. Being a bisexual woman of colour, however, I understood the sheer importance of having a strong E&D presence in any institution, especially when it involves a field that has traditionally lacked diversity. Therefore, it was truly refreshing to see how much the School’s team were taking direct responsibility to change this fact.
