I received offers from the University of Edinburgh, Leeds and Bristol. I chose Edinburgh as it offers me the chance to pursue my interests of deliberative democracy and communicative action. I want to pursue research on democracy in Africa, especially in Zimbabwe where I come from. I want to gain an education that is free and that encourages free thinking so that I can help change my country. The Msc Sociology and Global Change offers me an opportunity to explore ways in which I can help Zimbabwe, and Africa at large, move into the 21st Century. I want to learn in the best environment for research and learning and I am glad I got offers from 3 world class universities. I only hope I can get the funds to fulfil my dreams.
