My PhD years were an unforgettable experience in terms of support and level of study! In March 2020, I was the FIRST to have my VIVA online due to SARS-Covid pandemic. I was impressed with how flexible and fast the University was to accommodate all the necessary arrangements for this. I cannot praise the University and my School highly enough for supporting me throughout the whole process to close this 'chapter' of my life successfully.
