Degree programme: Management
Why did you choose to study at Royal Holloway?
I’m not going to lie, the beautiful Founder’s building and the campus atmosphere were both deciding factors in my decision to study at Royal Holloway. However, I also wanted to stay local to where I currently lived and I was impressed with the School of Management and the Marketing course that they had on offer.
What did you enjoy most about Management?
I enjoy the varied modules within the course and I particularly enjoy specialising in Marketing. There is a great calibre of lecturers who have real experience in the industry, which is a great addition to their lectures and workshops. I have also had the opportunity to complete a Year in Business as part of my degree. This has been an amazing opportunity to gain relevant work experience within the Marketing team of two organisations. If you have the chance to do a Year in Business, I would highly recommend as it has given me so many valuable experiences.
What is your favourite thing about being a student at Royal Holloway?
I really love the friendly atmosphere on campus, there is always somewhere quiet to go to catch-up with friends or get on with some work undisturbed. There is also a real community feel on campus, with lots of great events going on all the time.
What is the student life like?
I would say that the student life at Royal Holloway is very sociable; I have joined a couple of societies since starting here and they have been a great chance to meet many like-minded people. Royal Holloway has given me a chance to meet people that I would have never otherwise met and have some amazing experiences.
