Postgraduate Case Study

Salim Hasshu, a graduate of our Software Engineering MSc has praised De Montfort University for giving him the skills and confidence he needed to obtain a PhD scholarship at the university.

Salim won a prize for the work he did on his course and has fully embraced and benefitted from all aspects of life here at DMU.

Speaking about how he chose to study here Salim said, “Another big factor in my decision to study here was the skillset I was able to develop thanks to the placement year I had as an IT technician at a local school. It was this opportunity that allowed me to put all I had learnt in the classroom in real-life situations. I think that anyone can achieve a lot here and students are given plenty of opportunities like this to succeed.”

Salim is now looking to develop his PhD project at the University
