creativity necessitates the breaking of patterns.

Understanding “why” leads to
new solutions; just knowing “how” simply leads to more of the same.

My friends would describe me as…

All learning comes from curiosity…
The pursuit of knowledge…
Research admissions …responsible kai ti koitane…
My journey in the pursuit of knowledge started a few years ago when I
decided to join Higher Education. In a context of profound discontinuous change,
I was always curious of how organisations managed to cope and succeed in
today’s turbulent environment. Studying Business Management in the
University of Dundee offered me the opportunity to explore organizational
architecture and to investigate thoroughly business processes. I encountered
numerous and diverse perspectives which ultimately allowed me to grasp the
essence of management. ‘Differentiation and integration’- the capacity to link
different units within the same organization. The challenge is to design
organizational architectures that are flexible and adaptive. Computer Science
knowledge is indeed one of the most powerful tools that a manager could
possess in order to achieve those goals.
Most of my work experience is related with the IT industry. I worked for
School-House Volunteering where I had the chance to research on user interface
design theory and observe how the company could be revitalized through the
use of computing. My main task was to advise on the overall look and
functionality of their website while also establishing a social media presence.
Another significant experience was during my time in ‘Forest View’ where I was
introduced to Performance and Affiliate Marketing. While also strengthening my
social skills through various administrative tasks, I expanded my knowledge of
digital marketing and discovered new aspects of e-commerce. At the same time, I
worked for Couponcity.gr where I first dealt with HTML and CSS professionally.
This experience of the IT industry proved useful in reaffirming my decision to
study computer science at a higher level.
Joining the Navy right after my undergraduate degree allowed me to
develop and mature as a person, adding discipline into my life. Appreciating my
academic and professional capabilities so far, I was appointed administrative
assistant at Rhodes Naval Operations Base. A few months later I moved to
Karpathos Naval Observatory where I currently act as an assistant coordinator.
My navy experience has further fostered my team spirit, respect for hierarchy,
group solidarity and leadership skills in yet another diversified environment.
Learning is and should always be treated as a lifelong occupation. While
serving my mandatory military service I felt the need to further develop myself.
My interest in Computer Science and especially Software Engineering deepened
when I started building on my programming skills. Exploring online resources I
managed to identify insightful webpages in which I learned various
programming languages such as HTML & CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, PHP and
Python. At university I look forward to gaining a further, more advanced
knowledge of these topics as well as learning about new, exciting subjects.


During my final year in Dundee, I successfully defended a Bachelor of Science
senior honors thesis. The topic was ‘Creativity in the Business School of Dundee’.
It was a stimulating challenge that required effective communication with a
diverse range of audiences in order to analyse a complex social learning
environment. Nowadays, we face problems that do not comprise of a clear set of
rules nor a single solution. Creativity is the key; a free and autonomous
supportive environment with the benefits of a multimodal and an active-
experiential approach appear to be truly favourable towards the enhancement of
creative levels. Consequently, my choice of studying in the University of
Glasgow is strengthened in hopes of being an active member among students
from diverse backgrounds. Creativity can be understood and examined in
multiple dimensions, which can often be unparalleled. Research on it allowed me
to gain vital skills that are useful for both my academic and professional life. I
gained a thorough knowledge of academic writing, numeracy and analytical
skills, and appreciated the crucial role of time management in large projects.
Cultivating further my critical thinking abilities, composing my dissertation was
the ultimate, defining accomplishment of my undergraduate education.

(I am required to show competence in Mathematics…GCSE diploma would be
enough….I don’t like this paragraph, however I feel that I should incorporate this
information….)?????
Whilst the occasions I dealt with Mathematics in my undergraduate degree
were limited, I do not believe that this will handicap me when it comes to
computer science. I received a strong IGCSE grade and further more I have
studied higher-level Mathematics during my IB diploma. I have the ability to pick
up and focus on new concepts quickly and feel confident whenever dealing with
mathematical problems. As well as a passion for technology, I have a real
enjoyment of math, so I feel such a degree will challenge and enthuse me.

Computer Science is indeed an inspiring and diverse discipline with interesting
theories and applications. It is a subject that would enable me to expand my
problem solving abilities, both mathematically and analytically, as well as equip
me with a highly marketable set of skills. I foresee myself working in a qualified
company but most of all I envision myself creating.

Working in Europe
Creative industry…
Creative business… software development
R&D department
software development is at the intersection of Art and Commerce.
a few brilliant developers whose contributions are marginalized because they
didn’t know how to frame their ideas in a business context or because the
business itself regards that software development as purely a technology effort
with no art involved.


Another benefit from studying such a degree is its high practical value and
applicability that can lead to a variety of careers. My priority is working in the
industry however after one year of intensive study, I might find research tempting.
Maintaining a balance between academic and professional progress is essential in
my career plans and I still have a lot to learn in terms of experiences.


Glasgow
The degree combines a long series of features that constitute priorities for me as
far as program selection is concerned. Firstly, the inclusion of courses such as
‘Software Engineering’, ‘Programming’ and ‘Algorithms’ which provide a solid
grounding in the theoretical and methodological principles of the subject.
Decisively, the breadth of subjects covered and the opportunity to undertake a
major project on Software Development, getting involved with research groups
such as the ‘Embedded, Networked and Distributed Systems (ENDS)’ are exactly
tailored to my professional aspirations. The international dimension of the
program plays a significant role regarding my desire to study at Glasgow, since it
will allow me to adapt easily and perform at the maximum of my abilities.
I am hard working, highly determined, and ready for a new leap in my career.
High quality knowledge requires a highly competitive atmosphere as well as
researchers and supervisors who are leaders in their field. All this gives me the
motivation to apply for the Masters degree of Software Development in the
University of Glasgow.
After four vivid and treasured years in Scotland, I must admit that parts of
myself still feel away from home. I have the strongest incentive to advance as far
as possible in the field of Software Development and I am certain that my
application to the University of Glasgow is the best possible step to accomplish it.
I would regard my admission not only as a great honor but also as a great
responsibility and an obligation to work hard.






UCL
Optional modules such as: ‘Software Engineering’, ‘Functional Programming’ and
‘Interaction Design’

UCL

are exactly tailored to my professional aspirations. Investigations in fields such as
‘human computer interaction’ and the theory of ‘networks and systems’ are
widespread at the department and it makes admission to UCL particularly
desirable. The international dimension of the program plays a significant role
