"I really love the academic studies and social life at Surrey. Choosing the University was definitely the correct decision for me."

Strategic Marketing MSc
Entry year

"I studied Business Management and International Business Management during my undergraduate years in China and after that, I found my interest in Marketing and decided to continue my education at the University of Surrey studying Marketing Management (now known as Strategic Marketing). I love the digital focus that my course has and this is what attracted me to the course. Importantly, the University is willing to listen to students and cares about student feedback.

My course includes modules in Social Media and Digital Marketing, topics that are becoming more and more important in the digital era. The assessment of my subject consists of group coursework and crowdfunding projects rather than just individual coursework and examinations. I also have the chance to apply for a 6-month placement with this course.

The part that I enjoy most about the course is the opportunity to do group work, as when studying my undergraduate course it was all focused on individual coursework and examination.

The academic staff at Surrey are really responsible and always happy to answer any of your questions. I really admire our program leader and I’m lucky to have her as my personal tutor. She has given me precious guidance on my studies.

I love the cute campus, the residents here are warm and always willing to help you. I received a lot of kindness when I first arrived. I also love the fruit and vegetable market that is on every Thursday at the Students’ Union.

I applied to be a course rep and it is a good way to improve my skills by reporting on feedback from my peers. This experience has enhanced my overall ability, including communication skills, presentation skills, and leadership. I have also attended the career fairs and events held by the University and made appointments with the Careers and Employability team to get support with my CV and covering letter, I’m hoping this will all contribute to my future career, which I will hopefully find in Marketing. I really love the academic studies and social life at Surrey. Choosing the University was definitely the correct decision for me."
