Postgraduate study is much less about just learning facts and concepts. While a lot of the topics covered are new to me, I ﬁnd the most valuable aspect of study is to think about everything critically and to discuss the ideas presented in the lectures. My fellow students have such diverse backgrounds that it is always enriching to hear about their experience in so many different industries apart from just aviation which I am used to.
