"The reason I chose Kingston University is due to the programme that it offered. From all the research I did prior to enrolling, this was the only university that offered a course in marketing, communications and advertising incorporating the modules I was interested in. The programme is really well designed to include all aspects of the communications mix but also provides a background marketing knowledge which is really helpful to make us understand how it all works as a whole.
The lecturers are at a very good level and their expectations are really high, which means we have to work hard for the grades but the results are truly rewarding. Most of them are previous or current practitioners as well so they know how the industry works and are up to speed with the trends and developments. The teaching style is also very good as it is not only dry theory lecturing but there are a lot of practical applications and I feel I am ready to take what I have learned so far and confidently put it into work.
We have also had a chance to meet some fantastic guest speakers from various areas of marketing and communications which made every lecture interesting and different.
Another aspect of the course that I have really enjoyed is the people I have met. We are a very diverse bunch with colleagues from all over the world and it is a great learning experience and we have a lot of fun together. As the course is very intense we spend a lot of time together and I can say in a few months I have managed to create lifelong friendships.
The learning resources are in abundance, if only I had the time to learn everything that is offered online as well as in the learning centres. The staff is always ready to help us and guide us every step of the way and I never felt a lack of support. I am really happy overall with my choice and would recommend it to anyone who is contemplating doing a degree in business."
