MSc Business with International Management,
I chose Northumbria… because I’ve always dreamt of studying and working in London. After researching a number of universities I found that Northumbria was considered a successful university with a good reputation. I discovered that the university would have small class sizes and this is something I looked for. The campus is in a great location, very central, so it was easy for me to find accommodation close by.
I really like the university because… of the class contact time and small class sizes. There’s only around 20 people in my class which means the lecturers can pay attention to us all and help us when we ask. They make us feel very comfortable whilst we’re studying and they also remember all of our names, which I love! We are also welcome to email them for help or with personal issues, they’re very friendly!
What I love about London… is that there’s so much to do, I have a different activity every weekend. I can’t wait to move back and work here after my studies.
Northumbria University has helped me to become more confident… I no longer feel shy when talking in front of a group of people or working in groups. I also feel more comfortable when I meet new people. We went on a trip to meet the students from the Newcastle campus and I didn’t feel shy when talking to them.
The university has also taught me a range of transferable skills… that I can use in the future and in my career. I will take away and share the great experiences that I have had and I also hope to be more confident with my English and speaking it fluently at work and with my friends.
What three words would you use to describe your experience at Northumbria… playful, helpful & educational
