Marketing & Advertising BSc(Hons) with business experience: What our students say

Student profiles

Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.

Aaron Thornton

Aaron Thornton, Marketing and Advertising BSc (Hons)

"As someone who is interested in marketing and business, Kingston has a strong reputation for producing high quality business graduates. Today, it has one of the highest rates of graduate start-ups in the UK. This specialism makes this university an ideal base for learning about entrepreneurship and business.

"The structure of my course is a 4-year degree completed inside 3 years with a placement. Therefore I am more competitive than students from other universities and more able to meet the demands of the job market.

"I really like the flexible style of learning. The course is set up to measure our abilities in a practical environment. Even throughout the course, the lecturers and staff are constantly looking at ways to improve our learning. They spend so much time measuring our performance, so they can adapt their teaching to match the learning styles of the students.

"Coming to Kingston feels like coming into an extended family. If I have problem, I can contact several people who can help. Everyone here is so open, honest and genuine. You will never be alone here."

Zain Pirbhai, Marketing and Advertising with business experience BSc(Hons)

"I chose to come to Kingston because I liked the approach the Business School takes to my course. Not only am I getting to learn about a subject area I am really interested in, but I have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience which I know will increase my chances of getting a job straight after university.

"I am getting to take the PRINCE2 project management qualification. This provides the technical structure of the framework for any given project, which is complementing the other skills I am learning during my degree. It's also widely recognised by employers so will make a great addition to my CV too. Plus, on the Business Readiness Programme I am getting a lot of support in preparing for my work placement, which I will do as part of my degree. I know when I graduate I will be heading into a competitive job marketing but I really feel my course is preparing me for that.

"As an international student I was completely new to the UK when I came to Kingston University. I haven't found this to disadvantage at all as I've met many other students from all over the world who are in the same position as me. It still surprises me how culturally diverse the university is, and how easy it has been to fit in and make friends."
