"I am from Germany and decided to work in England and study the language for a year before starting university in Germany. However, I really enjoyed being here so decided to stay.

"I chose this joint honours combination because I have had a passion for biology since I was little. But these days, science is not just about research – it's also about applying business knowledge. The business modules enable me to focus my research on areas of demand.

"I chose to study at Kingston because I really enjoyed its open day; everyone was very helpful and friendly. In addition, the University has one of the best ratings for teaching life science modules. I've since found that I really enjoy living in Kingston. It is a very nice place to study, especially since the river is only a few minutes walk from the University.

"Studying so many different subjects makes the course very exciting. It never gets boring. In general I like the style of teaching, especially since I am now in my final year and everyone seems very familiar. I really enjoy the laboratory work – even though I am not very practical and a couple of things have gone wrong! The business course is a challenge because I am more scientific so I need to work harder at these modules. However, I have always managed to get good grades.

"For my placement year, I worked in the clinical dictionary department of a pharmaceutical company. I learnt how to code medical and drug terminology, and about different diseases, drugs and chemicals, which will definitely benefit me. It was a fantastic experience.

"I am no longer scared of getting a job after university – instead I am now really looking forward to graduating. I think the placement has opened a lot of opportunities for me and I feel really motivated to finish my degree successfully."
