Meet the experts – from students for students

Choosing the right place to study is one of the most difficult questions many students have to make before committing to a degree of their choice.

The Doherty Institute is home to students from all over the world, with different backgrounds, interests and motivations. We have asked our current students to give us a glimpse into their life, to tell us about their student experience and why they have made the Doherty Institute their choice to study.
