Course: International Business BSc (with Work Placement Year)
"My experience at Brunel University London has exceeded my expectations since my arrival – from the international student orientation programme, to lecturers and my course mates."
All the support staff I’ve interacted with here on campus have been so helpful and supportive throughout my academic journey, as well as my transition to England. My life at Brunel has been an eye opening experience: with over 150 clubs and societies and a diverse community, I’ve met lots of new people and learned more about different cultures.
Through the award winning Professional Development Centre, I was able to further enhance my skills by securing a placement year at Brunel which has already an asset towards my personal and professional development. It was tough to leave the comforts of my home, but with the support of everyone here at Brunel, it has turned out to be an incredible experience and opportunity.
Course: MSc Applied Corporate Brand Management
"I chose Brunel for my postgraduate degree because they had a very unique programme with an optional four month work placement, and a good ranking".
I found the coursework especially interesting since it often involved a real company to apply the concepts and theoretical frameworks on. The group presentations were helpful for developing my presentation skills and by the end of the programme this made me a more confident speaker. The Brunel professors were engaging and had interesting examples accompanying their lectures.
After my courses and dissertation were completed, I chose to do a placement at a Digital Marketing company with help from the Professional Development Placement Centre. The placement was a fantastic experience and I recommend it to everyone! I was able to apply some of the things I learned from my programme in my placement and gained international experience for my CV. Thank you Brunel for an overall wonderful and unforgettable experience!
