"I chose the University of Surrey because it’s one of the top universities for events management.
"The programme itself was well structured, with lots of opportunities for practical experience. My tutors all had a working background in events, which was a great addition to the theory and knowledge delivered through the course.
"During my course, I did an internship with Cancer Research, which then led to a part-time role in organising ‘Race for Life’ events. Through this, I was able to apply the theory I had learned in a real working environment.
"The combination of my degree and this work experience took my career to a new level and helped me get the job I have today, as an Entertainment Coordinator and Sales Executive – a role in which I manage the entertainment for prestigious international events.
"Every day I meet incredible clients and put together events that hundreds of people are able to enjoy and benefit from. This has all been made possible through my degree at Surrey, the academics who helped me, and my determination to pursue my dreams."
