On the 22nd June 2010 : I received the results of my four year degree. I am absolutely delighted to reveal: I achieved a first class Msci degree in I.T & Media Communications and as an added bonus I have also been nominated by the board of examiners to receive the IEEE Prize for outstanding performance on my final year project. I really couldn’t have asked for a better end to my academic career!
I would like to thank all the staff from the department of communication systems at Lancaster University for making my time on the course so enjoyable, in particular Paul Coulton (a.k.a @MysticMobile) & Phil Benachour - two inspirational and outstanding lecturers in the department.
Of course University life involves more than just the academic side of things, I would like to thank all the people I met along the way & the countless new friends I made - obviously without all of you University wouldn’t be anywhere near as fun, I will thank you all elsewhere but for now I will just say thank you!
Thank you to Lancaster University as a whole too, the collegiate system really does wonders for students when they first arrive, I still remember being welcomed into the open arms of Pendle College on new arrivals day and from there I never really looked back!
And so, as my student life (and this ‘Oscar acceptance speech’-esque post) draw to a close; I am looking to the future and what the coming years hold: I recently accepted a job offer from FreshNetworks and will be making the big move down to London in the coming months to what will hopefully be another great adventure!
In the meantime: someone put the kettle on I think I am going to have a well earned rest!
(P.S: I should know more about the award within the month and will update this post with any developments.)
