Thanks for asking Amy a question, be sure to check back soon!

Was there a big transition from undergraduate to postgraduate study?

For me, yes. As I did an undergraduate English degree that in my final year had 4 hours contact time, it was a big transition to do into a degree which was like a full-time job for me. Much of the course is also group work, so you have to quickly learn how to adapt to other people in a way you are not made to in undergraduate study.

Do you have anything lined up for once you have completed your degree?

I have been to several interviews for various marketing roles, and some I am yet to hear from. I think I will be taking a few days off to relax and enjoy the end of my 12-months of study – perhaps with a holiday!

What has been the highlight of your time at Birmingham?

Not only did I make some great friendships with people I otherwise would never have met, an all-expenses paid trip to Coniston in the Lake District was the highlight of the course for me. Not only did I bond with international students, it was also great fun.

Why did you choose the University of Birmingham?

I knew if I was to carry on studying after my BA then I would be living at home. I live in the heart of the West Midlands, meaning there are multiple universities to choose from, however UoB was top of my list due to it’s high, redbrick status, I’ve always dreamed to be a student.

What was your motivation for undertaking postgraduate study?

I decided to undertake my master’s degree because I knew I wanted to pursue a career in marketing. As my undergraduate degree was academic (English Language and Literature), I found it difficult to apply for jobs without a degree specialising in my chosen field. The course specification was interesting and provided me with knowledge I did not have before.
