Hi everyone! My name is Jagoda (aka Berry), I’m an International Year One Business student, having moved here from my native Poland. I’m ambitious and business focused, with a particular interest in luxury goods, fashion and events management. Outside of University I am a keen sportswoman and foodie.

Your course

I chose my current course because it consists of modules that provide a good breadth of knowledge in all the important business areas, rather than being too narrowly focussed on one thing.

Choosing Newcastle University London

I wanted to study in one of the best universities in the world, in one of the best locations in the world. I considered lots of other universities, but decided that Newcastle University London provided the best business opportunities.

Highlights so far

The best things about studying here are; the size of the campus, the location of the campus in the heart of the city, the helpful and easy-going staff and the amazing students from all around the world that came to London for the same reason as me!

Best bits about my course

I enjoy the fact that after only the 1st year, I am able to put into practice the knowledge I have already gained. For example, being able to produce financial statements or to suggest a marketing strategy for a particular company!

Living in London

I live in a privately rented flat in the heart of the city and I highly recommend that for anyone looking for a bit more privacy and peace than your typical student accommodation. This may seem like an expensive option, but it really isn’t when you rent the flat with friends.

Being a student in London

Being a student in London is the best! It offers an amazing student life – both posh and casual clubs, restaurants and entertainment. Moreover, for those seeking a career in business, it’s one of the greatest places in the world when it comes to employment opportunities.

Top tips for prospective students

I would advise prospective students to follow their instincts and choose a university and course that genuinely excites them. Studies aren’t easy overall and so you need to feel motivated in order to get the most out of the experience and finish with excellent grades.
