"The world of social media and online marketing has always caught my interest. I chose to pursue my MSc Marketing Management from Surrey Business School as it is one of the top universities offering this exciting course with an entrepreneurial, digital and analytical approach.

Marketing is an evolving discipline with useful practical implications. What drives my passion for this discipline is that it spurs creativity and innovation. It allows me to think outside the box and devise fascinating content to generate value for different stakeholders. The integration of emerging technologies also offers various learning opportunities for career and personal growth.

The aspect of my course I enjoy most is the written assignments. These stimulate my critical thinking, encourage me to confidently apply the learning outcomes of modules and help develop transferable skills. The study facilities at Surrey are great, especially the Library and SPLASH team, who help students to hone their academic reading and writing skills through different sessions and one to one personal counselling. My faculty is very helpful, and they encourage diverse opinions and discussions in the classrooms. 

During my time at Surrey, one of my proudest achievements was being selected by the British Blockchain Association as an ambassador for the International Scientific Conference 2019. I also successfully led a crowdfunding campaign and raised £2,000 for the University of Surrey Boat Club.

Surrey’s campus is beautiful; the lake side is the best place to go after lectures and Guildford is enriched with stunning hills and landscapes. The University’s location is ideal with the town centre just a 10-minute walk from the campus. I am also a professional photographer and have enjoyed the paid opportunities offered by University of Surrey Photographic Society. 

"I feel more confident and independent. I never travelled alone in my life before, but now I do it like a pro."

Moving to the UK has pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me discover new and interesting aspects of my personality. I feel more confident and independent. I never travelled alone in my life before, but now I do it like a pro. I have also become better equipped to manage household chores and more organised with carrying out daily routine work. I value diversity and inclusion even more now, and really enjoy socialising and working with people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. 

After graduating from the University of Surrey, I am confident that my transferable and technical skills developed throughout my studies will help me secure a job with one of the leading advertising agencies and multinational corporations. I would like to advise students to come to Surrey without any hesitation because the University, staff and Students’ Union make you feel very comfortable, helping you to experience an amazing university life and have a great time in the UK."
