Degree: MSc Management
When I first arrived at the university I felt it was very modern. I liked the architecture and I loved the newer and more modern buildings such as the Duke of Kent building which is shaped like a boat and Millennium house which is shaped like a train.
I like my course, and I enjoyed the modules I have taken so far. The course has taught me a lot about the management of people, different leadership styles, skills which I have found very important because we interact with people all the time but which are fundamental in the business world. One module in particular I enjoy is financial management as I love finance. I found it very useful. For my undergraduate degree I did accounting but now that I have started my masters I have found that I enjoy finance a lot more. The lecturers are very professional who have lots of experience. The students are very diverse and from different backgrounds. There are so many people from different nationalities it is like a melting pot. This is very useful as there are different cultures and view points and learning to deal with them is important in the business world.
I lived in Surrey Court, Mole House, with 13 other people. My flat mates were wonderful. We had a lot of fun together. The cleaners said that we were the best house, the cleanest one, and the ones with the cleanest kitchen. We all got on very well and did many things together.
The careers service is very good. I went there a few times and I found them very friendly and helpful. I have also been to the medical center to check my health.
Surrey is a very good place to study. There are not a lot of Indonesian people here so you can practice your English. The university has strong links with business and there are many opportunities for you to take advantage of such as the placement year.
