What our students think

Feedback from Student A:

What I have enjoyed about this course?

I enjoyed being taught various topics. This course allowed me to see all the potential of Natural Language Processing–my favourite topic was Corpus Linguistics. I also enjoyed the projects that we carried out during this course.

Who would I recommend it to?

I would recommend this course to people interested in linguistics or languages in general to show them that linguistics can also be paired with Computer Science and to those interested in Computer Science, for it could show them a new application to Computer Science.

What I have gone on to do?

I am now looking for a graduate job that would allow me to use the skills I learnt during this course. Besides, I am writing a paper in natural language processing, which will probably be published in the International Journal of Corpus Linguistics.

How I have benefitted from this course?

Thanks to this course, I know what I want to do in the future; I want to be a Professor of Corpus Linguistics. I also have got several opportunities for a PhD in the US. Besides, I also learnt how to use a few programming languages, which is of great importance nowadays if one wants to find a job.

Feedback from Student B:

What I have enjoyed about the course?

I enjoyed Python. It helped me a lot to develop a good understanding of how a program works and get manipulated by users in order to achieve the results required. Even though I have finished the course, I am still developing my skills in Python to create a simple project based on deep learning in the future.

Who would I recommend it to?

I would recommend this course to the individuals who seek to increase their knowledge of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. These two fields are enjoyable and challenging at the same time to me. Therefore, the people who want to understand how, say, SIRI works, should join this course.

What I have gone on to do?

Hopefully, I will do my PhD in the future. I am planning to take my skills in programming further beyond what I have learnt from the course. Also, I will, hopefully, benefit my beloved Arabic language in the field of NLP.

Feedback from Student C:

What I have enjoyed about the course?

I particularly enjoyed the programming aspects of the course.

What I have gone on to do?

I am a DevOps engineer.

How I have benefitedĀ from this course?

I used it as a conversion degree to get into computer science.
