Vino Suseetharan

Name: Vino Suseetharan
Course: Chemistry MChem(Hons)

"Kingston University has been the best choice and the most amazing experience of my life. It gave me the chance to develop myself and getting involved in a lot of extracurricular activities which allowed me to develop myself as a person.

I have volunteered myself from the first day of university to become a course representative, whom deals with issues and suggestions raised within my class. Hence I have been nominated to become a senior course representative within the faculty. This was an incredible experience and boosted up my confidence to stand for the Union of Kingston Students' elections.

Kingston University offered a range of development programs that I had a chance to get involved in, including the leadership programme, SPRINT programme and the Inspiring Talent mentoring scheme. Besides my degree, these courses have taught me a lot and shaped me into the person I am today.

My lecturers have been absolutely amazing and supportive throughout my degree. They were always available and willing to help, giving extra revision classes as well as one to one sessions when needed.

I am very honoured and proud for receiving the Dean's prize, the Kingston Gold Award and for being nominated as the Top 5 Outstanding Achievers by the careers service. I couldn't have done it without the love and support from Kingston University. Thank you very much!"

"As someone who has always wanted to join a scientific profession, I knew from an early age that chemistry was what I wanted to study. Now as a third-year student, I can say with ease that Kingston was definitely the right choice; the labs and equipment accessible to you is great and with a teaching staff to match, you really can't go wrong!

Even though there are other universities in London that teach chemistry, Kingston University appealed to me the most because of the practical application of what you learn in the classroom. Whether you are looking to do MChem with an industrial placement or the BSc(Hons) degree, the hands-on experience will more than prepare you for industry.

The big question many people ask themselves is "what can I do with a chemistry degree?" Well the possibilities are endless. Britain's first woman prime minister and the first Briton in space both had chemistry degrees, so don't think it's all about lab work! The broad range of skills learnt on the course sets you up for many career paths outside of science.

Furthermore, Kingston as a town is a very nice place to live. Situated on the outskirts of London, it still has a lot to offer but is not so busy and 'in your face'. However, if venturing into central London is something that appeals to you, there are two train stations situated near the University. If not, there are many parks and facilities to go lose yourself in including bowling, shopping centres, a cinema, restaurants and much more.

For studying chemistry, you can't go wrong at Kingston University. With the broad range of theory taught and the large amount of hands on experience, a Kingston chemistry degree will set you up for a successful future."
