"Coming from a design background, I chose this course because I wanted to start off a career in advertising. The course not only taught me the necessary academic theory but also gave me the opportunity to put my creativity into practice based on marketing theory.

The course had an excellent structure that achieved a smooth transition from learning the basics to quickly moving on to a more advanced level. The teaching staff was very helpful and made each lecture a very interesting and enjoyable experience. In addition the brand new Learning Resources Centre on the Kingston Hill campus provided a well equipped and pleasant environment. That was very important since I ended up spending a lot of my time there.

I started this 12-month course in September 2010 and found it to be a full and rewarding year. Winning the Dean's Prize at the end of that year was a formal recognition for all my input and efforts. It made me feel that everything I did was noticed and appreciated.

I am currently in the process of trying to turn my Mdissertation into a published academic paper with the help of my course director, Patricia Harris. Leaving Kingston was only the beginning. Even as a graduate, I still have the University's support in terms of planning my career."
