I was attracted to studying Politics and International Relations at Aston University as the degree programme offered the opportunity to take a year in industry, which I found an invaluable experience. Alongside this, Aston offered me a wide range of modules especially in second and final year so I was able to tailor my degree to what I was passionate about learning.
The benefits of studying a BSc at Aston is the small lecture sizes, it offers great opportunities to get involved in great debates in the class room, as well as offering you what feels like a real 1 to 1 personable learning experience.
Aston has enabled me to achieve my career aspirations as my degree programme has taught me a wide skill set. The ability to place high attention to detail when researching, sourcing and examining information and always having a cultural awareness to the global political trends can be invaluable in the workplace.
Upon graduating I will join the Microsoft Graduate scheme in a Marketing position working within the Consumer Channels Group of the business.
My long-term goals involve developing my marketing career within Microsoft where I hope to possibly gain some international experience and progress within the business or the wider technology sector.
