- Where are you from?
- What are you studying and where?
BSc Computer Science at University of Manchester, UK
- What influenced and inspired you?
Coding combines the satisfaction you get when you solve a mathematical problem, and a joy you get from creation.
- What are you passionate about?
This is the question you should really ask me in my second year. For now I think I’ll specialize in Software Engineering.
- What led you to choose that university/city/country?
University of Manchester is huge and modern, ranked highest in UK for many subjects including Computer Science after Cambridge and Oxford. The amount of citations the university produces is huge and hence I was expecting very rigorous and intense education. I would say present students should not really think about the cities, because if the university you choose has 10 000 + students then definitely you’ll get all the parties and stuff. Yet, if you choose a top university I don’t think you’ll have the time for it lol.
- What are your plans for the future?
Get an amazing job, work abroad then start my own business in Tashkent. May seem pretty cliched but this is what I want to do.
- How did BST help you?
I would say the statistics course I took helps me in data analysis. That’s pretty much it, as the Maths I use here is very different from the Maths I did in school… oh yes proof by induction, literally life saver.
- What’s your favourite memory from BST?
Mr Krige. Absolutely love the dude. Also my friends. In my opinion the friends I’ve made at BST are the ones that will last for life.
- What advice would you give to current BST students?
Don’t worry too much about your social circle and friendship. You’ll be able to find friends anywhere in the world. Top university’s don’t really expect you to do anything other than study. So if you are thinking of starting a business whilst at university – think again.
- Lifelong connections are……?
