What our Student Fellows say

Serving as a CDE fellow was an excellent opportunity to enhance my research skills and build relationships with faculty across the University of London system. I learned practical skills, including survey creation and research development, that enhances my own MSc. work. I also appreciated connecting with other University of London students. Particularly as an online international student, the program deepened my connection to the University of London and showed me the breadth of research developed by the institution. I encourage anyone who is interested in inter-disciplinary research with an online focus, as well as observing and collaborating with world-class researchers, to apply to be a CDE fellow.
