Chunyan Wang, MA (2012-2014)

Chunyan WangI studied MA Urban Conservation at the Centre for Urban History during October 2012-September 2013. It turned out to be a fantastic experience. This year’s study on the modules such as the city in history, Conservation, Heritage and Urban Environment gave me a more comprehensive understanding about cities and urban conservation. Coming from a Chinese background, I felt the modules to be quite inspiring as I learnt more about in what way the Chinese cities and European cities are different and how conservation based in the European background can provide useful reference to the urban conservation in china both in conservation philosophies and mechanisms. As I can say, this year’s study has equipped me with the basic knowledge to pursuit a career in urban conservation in the future. Besides, I also benefited a lot from the active academic atmosphere in the Centre. There exists a good interaction between teachers and students. Our tutors are all very patient and supportive in providing helpful advices in how to do critic thinking, resource finding and academic writing. During this year, I gained more skills in carrying out independent academic research. Also, I met many passionate and talented scholars here. They gave me great encouragement in devoting myself in doing academic research. Overall, I felt very fortunate to have this year’s study in the Urban History Centre.
