Choosing Bath to learn about technology in the entertainment industry
MSc Digital Entertainment student Zhangyang Hu talks about his studies and living as an international student in Bath.
The Digital Entertainment master’s course offers a unique opportunity to get involved in technologies within the entertainment industry.
Why I chose to study Digital Entertainment at Bath
I was highly attracted to the Digital Entertainment master’s course as it offers a unique opportunity to get involved in technologies within the entertainment industry in the UK.
I liked the idea of project-lead study where you don't take a lot of different units. Instead, you take control of your own learning by carrying out practical course work.
The year-long placement is also a great experience for postgraduates as it will guide you on how to prepare for job hunting.
Making the most of living in the city
I think Bath is a very friendly and beautiful small city. You won't need a lot of time to get familiar with it.
As an international student, I have found that living here has given me a good opportunity to mix in a different culture.
And don't forget to check out other interesting cities in the UK and Europe in vacation time!
My advice for international students
I would say get psychologically prepared. The life here can be different from what you are used to, but it can also be really exciting and interesting.
And, always balance your time between studying and doing other things. The University offers a lot to accommodate you, so don't hesitate to ask if you need any help.
