​Cardiff School of Education student, Krishneel Reddy began his studies in September 2014 on the Masters in Education programme. After completing his studies in just seven months, Krishneel is now going on to start a fully funded PhD in New Zealand.

Krishneel joined Cardiff Met in September 2014 as an International student from Fiji. During his studies he undertook four modules and then went on to complete his dissertation, with a focus on peer-to-peer feedback in Fijian Higher Education. He achieved an overall Distinction with a mark of 80% - the highest in his year.

He was also awarded the Masters in Education Prize and the School of Education's Award for Academic Excellence. He provided on-going support to his fellow students, particularly academic and technological help to international students.

As a result of these successes, Krishneel applied for a fully funded PhD programme. In a very competitive environment, Krishneel was successful in his application and will begin his studies in February 2016.

Dr Jill Llewellyn-Williams, Principal Lecturer in Cardiff School of Education commented on the success of Krishneel: ''Krishneel is the perfect example of a student that has fully immersed himself in his studies and is reaping the benefits as a reward. Krishneel was very well liked by both staff and students and was a genuinely sincere and friendly individual. We were happy to support his applications with glowing references and wish him every success in his future.''
