      I did my undergraduate studies back in India, there I went to University of Pune (http://www.unipune.ac.in/).
      I completed my postgraduate studies in the UK, for MSc I went to University of Strathclyde (http://www.strath.ac.uk/) and studied for PhD at University of Aberdeen (http://www.abdn.ac.uk/)

      I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds – where Amit is studying now, although we’ve never actually met! It was quite close to home and I met some of my closest friends there. It’s been nearly 6 years since I left but I’m still in touch with many of the people on my course. It was – and still is – a very friendly place to study with lots going on, I’m sure Amit would agree.

      I went to Louisiana State University for my undergraduate degree in Biological and Agricultural Engineering. LSU (http://www.lsu.edu/) is located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, or what is called the ‘Boot’ state in the United States. Louisiana is located in the South of the U.S. – it borders the Gulf of Mexico. I loved Louisiana and LSU so much that I stayed there for my graduate degree, also in Biological and Agricultural Engineering.

      After some time away from LSU, I returned (because I missed it so!) to pursue my PhD in Journalism 😉

      People really are friendlier in Louisiana than anywhere else in the United States! Life is happy down here – I spend lots of time outdoors because it is always warm here!

      I went to the University of Bath, and absolutely loved my time there! It was quite daunting at first as I was moving abroad (I grew up in France), but uni years really are the best for making friends and trying new things!

      Hello ojcrumb123. I love your name!

      I went to the University of Wales Institute Cardiff (in Wales) and it’s recently changed its name to Cardiff Metropolitan University. Cardiff is a really great place to study. There are lots of students living here and there are always lots of things happening.
