What our graduates say

Check out what our graduates have gone on to do and how studying at Kingston helped them achieve their goals.

Karine Porto: "It was a great experience that I will never forget"

Course: Corporate Communications MA (is now Public Relations and Corporate Communications MA)

"I am very thankful for the opportunity of doing an internship at the Fifth Business a global change communications agency with an office in central London. That unique chance came to me via an email sent from the course director to all corporate communications students. After I was chosen, we conveniently arranged to start my internship only after I had finished my masters and handed in my dissertation, which was good to keep me focused on my studies and, later, to be able to give my best during the placement.

"What I liked the most in this internship was the great opportunity of seeing some of the theories I have studied during my course being applied in real life. For instance, I was asked to create an internal communications plan to be implemented within Fifth Business London office and was also involved with the creation of their social media strategy, by helping to conduct a competitors' analysis. In both situations, I could clearly use concepts that I had previously studied in Kingston Business School, which definitely helped me to complete the tasks.

"Despite the short time spent within the agency, I believe I managed to extract a lot of useful experiences from my internship, not only from the activities I was directly involved with, but also from observing other consultants. Since I only have some in-house professional experience in Brazil, it was great to be able to see how communications work is done in London and from an agency perspective. I was also very pleased to come across some technology used in internal communications, which I had not had the chance to work with before. I can definitely say that this internship helped me to see how and where to apply some of the key theories I studied in Kingston and can also say that it has challenged me to learn more about some tools currently used in communications, for instance SharePoint and social media platforms.

"All in all, it was a great experience that I will never forget!"

Helen Ojigbani: "I recommend Kingston's Corporate Communications MA because of its high level of teaching quality and the wide range of career options it offers"

Course: Corporate Communications MA (is now Public Relations and Corporate Communications MA)

"I chose the Corporate Communications MA because I needed a course that would broaden my range of career options.

I needed a course that was all encompassing and corporate communications stood out as a perfect fit for my career path. Kingston Business School stood out as reputable and credible on the league tables. My time at Kingston University was both exciting and challenging. The first lecture I attended was on internal communications. The content and the manner of delivery were so excellent that I was convinced I was doing the right thing, at the right place. This conviction lasted through the opportunities to design communication plans and improve on presentation skills. The assessments were challenging but the 24-hour opening of the library was convenient.

The first session especially, was very intensive and kept us on our toes. This was good, however, as it gave us a good feel of the business world. I recommend Kingston's Corporate Communications MA because of its high level of teaching quality and the wide range of career options it offers. I left Kingston with the confidence to make a mark in the corporate communications sector."
