IT Project Programmer
"Attending and studying at the University of Bradford set me up with the practical and life skills required to get to where I am today. When you complete your course, you might still not know exactly what it is you want to do with your life, but that’s okay! Opportunities come at every turn and you just have to be willing to grab them and hold on. My degree gave me everything I needed to secure a job and I just had to apply it. I took my qualifications and ran with them, which is why I’ve been able to secure jobs since."

Proudly stating she was "born and raised in Bradford”, Amn made a late decision to stay home to continue her studies at university. Amn studied both her undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University of Bradford. "I did apply to other universities, but when I received my results I decided that I wanted to stay local!

Tell us about what you’re currently doing.
I teach undergraduate modules at the University of Bethlehem, such as Financial Management, Advanced Investment Management, Microeconomics, and Macroeconomics, besides supervising senior students in their final year projects and dissertations. I enjoy lecturing, especially when dealing with young students as they are one of the most important pillars of the Palestinian society.
How has the Bradford experience helped you?
My journey at the University of Bradford was one of the challenging targets of my life. It was a very rewarding and beautiful experience which taught me many values such as time management, passion, critical thinking, and self-discipline.
At the school of management, I was taught by famous professors, who delivered their passion and skills to me through the cutting edge technologies and resources provided by the university. This was essential to further my career in academia and later on into postgraduate research.
Why did you decide to do the MSc in Bradford and what were your highlights?
Bradford has a very well structured MSc program, which is based on quantitative analysis and matches my interests and aspirations. The university has a very good reputation in the Middle East and in Palestine, which is something every student should consider when applying for programs.
The highlight at Bradford was always a mixture of passion to learn and discover new knowledge, meet new people from all over the world and then become one family and enjoy the life in one of the most affordable cities in the UK. This is something that you take home with you and you will always remember. These memories will never fade.
What advice would you give current or future students hoping to work in your profession?
When you further your education, make use of every single minute, because it does count. The time you spend here and the people you meet, you may not find it anywhere in your life. Make it worth it.
Tell us about yourself and your ambitions
I come from the little town of Bethlehem in Palestine, and my goal is to finish my PhD. In the long run, I want to improve the Palestinian economy, after implementing our own national currency, an area of research that I started at Bradford University couple of years ago.
My dissertation at the end of the MSc program at Bradford was featured in the Financial Times newspaper and website. At the moment I am doing my PhD at Newcastle University in the North East of England. Bradford was an important period to establish my passion and courage to go for postgraduate research.
