Why do you think you got this job e.g what skills/ knowledge/experience etc

The severe environment brought about the perfect situation of not only hearing but exchange of ideas- with people from different walks of life. The international atmosphere gave that aura of responsibility cultivated respect and learned how to interact with people. Both the teaching staff at UWE and students alike gave some of the much needed impetus to face challenges in our present jobs. UWE is an institution ingrained not only in my mind but also in my heart.

UWE is the path to where some of us are. It gives you the knowledge, focus and confidence to reach the pinnacle of your aspiration.
