Student satisfaction Ilona Mostipan (Ukraine) I was looking for a programme in economics and, attracted by the participation of a highly ranked British university and mandatory mobility within Europe, I decided that the IMESS economics track would be a good choice for a specialized Master’s programme. By the end of the first semester at UCL, the programme had already exceeded my expectations Zachary Rothstein (United States): After finishing my undergraduate degree, I was looking for a Masters programme that combined academic rigor, international immersion, and a varied programme of study. IMESS fit the bill perfectly.
