I chose Newcastle for its location; because it offered a joint programme (Marketing and Management); and INTO Newcastle offered direct entry to the University.
Studying at Newcastle
I like the combination of staff with academic and industry backgrounds. The ‘Marketing Consultancy’ project was one of the most exciting modules that offered experience with a real business.
It has amazing facilities for students (services on campus, libraries and Careers Service). Students have good relationships with the teachers who become your mentor and inspire and motivate you a lot.
Living in Newcastle
Newcastle is a city which makes your studying enjoyable and not that stressful (the living costs are moderate and it’s easy to travel around) and familiarisation with the UK is easier due to the good infrastructure.
Short-term is to go on to a Masters programme and long-term it is to be a part of a team at Saatchi Saatchi.
