Int Financial Analysis MSc


Student Profile

About me

Name: Tarig
Course: International Financial Analysis MSc
Study mode: Full time
Where I’m from: Sudan

Choosing Newcastle

"I chose to study my postgraduate degree at Newcastle because of the high ranking of the Business School, the University’s high student satisfaction, and also the employability prospects offered following my study here. I had the choice between Glasgow and Newcastle, and the modules offered here were more suitable to my learning and future. They allowed me to combine my experience in accounting and my background in statistics to work towards what I would like to know for my future."

Studying at Newcastle

"I enjoy the quality of teaching at Newcastle, learning theory and practical implications of my work, the dynamic approach and engaging learning experience provided by my department, and also the critical thinking of both students and staff that I have come into contact with.

"There are 69 people on my course, and most of our time is spent working independently, with 50% of our course also composed of group projects. My studies are more independent but compared to Sudan they’re not as difficult. However, at Newcastle I am being taught the fundamentals, which is good."

Postgraduate Community

"Newcastle has a very active postgraduate community, it is extremely diverse and includes people from across the world. As my main focus is my studies I use the Student’s Union to work, but as such I haven’t really been involved in many social activities as part of the University."

Funding my studies

"I was awarded a Chevening scholarship, but I would have come anyway as I had saved for my studies."

Career aspirations

"I would like to work in Financial Service Education, and this course will add value to my work and role back in Sudan. I am here to represent Sudan and our educational attainment and culture as potentially the only Sudanese person on my course."


"I live close to the University and the Library in accommodation called Leazes Terrace in an individual flat. It’s about five minutes from the University which is great."

Living in Newcastle

"Newcastle is a great city and has a lot to offer. The food is great and the people are friendly. It’s a beautiful city."
