Hey everyone! I am from India and I am planning to apply to the Human Computer Interaction MSc programme.

I don't quite understand how grading system works in the UK, but I have a 7.71 CGPA (on a scale of 10).

I am stil in the process of shortlisting universities that I will be applying to, but UoN course modules and research output in the field of HCI sounds like a good match for what I am trying to do.
