LEVEL OF STUDY
My time at Surrey has had a profound impact on my employability post-graduation. The course content, which is always up-to-date with the latest trends, has equipped me with cutting-edge knowledge and skills.
Ever since I stepped foot on campus for the first time, Surrey felt like a home to me. With everyone at the university being so friendly and helpful I had no doubt, I’d have an incredible experience by choosing to study here.
My main role as a creative producer was to create 25 or 30 second trailers for National Geographic shows. It was an amazing opportunity; as part of my role I had a lot of creative freedom and had to come up with concepts, pitch them to the managers, and then edit and write the script for the promos.
One of the highlights of my placement at GlaxoSmithKline was the additional skills I didn’t expect to learn in a lab-based setting, such as procurement, project management, event planning and EHS engagement.
My heavy involvement with StagTV to put course material into practice as well as my placement year at Dolby made it easy to choose my current career path.
If you have the opportunity to do a placement, go for it. You will learn so much about yourself, the field you are in and what career opportunities are out there.
After returning from placement for my final year and getting to select more clinical modules, I knew that I wanted to have a career in exercise physiology.
I had a fantastic time during my placement at AstraZeneca. I developed invaluable professional and scientific skills, and it inspired me to pursue a career in biopharmaceutical research and development.
I would absolutely recommend a placement year to anyone. It’s a great opportunity to see what kind of work environment you like to work in, understand a specific sector or industry, and significantly improve your employment prospects.
