Why did you choose to study this course at Ulster University?
I chose to study Marketing at Ulster to prepare me for a career in marketing. The modules taught on the course reflected areas which I was interested in exploring, such as consumer behaviour. The opportunity to go on a placement year was a key selling point, allowing for knowledge learnt from the course to be transferred into industry.
What do you enjoy most about the course?
The element I enjoy most about the course is having the opportunity to work within a team in order to complete different projects. It enables discussions, the sharing of ideas and brings the project to life.
What other opportunities have you had have whilst studying at Ulster University so far?
You haven’t got to look too far to find opportunities at Ulster. A massive opportunity, which employers look favourably upon, is attaining the EDGE award. Completing EDGE accredited activities allows you to develop skills and grow as an individual, which will greatly enhance your employability.
How have you found the support of the staff at Ulster University?
Wonderful. From lecturers to library staff, they are always on hand to point you in the right direction.
What advice would you give a new student starting this course?
Get involved within the Marketing Society. It not only gives you the opportunity to meet like-minded people from different years of the course, but allows you to get involved in planning exciting events, such as the annual Children in Need bake sale (which the BBC have been known to come and film), the course formal and any other activities/events you can think of, it’s yours to play with! Get involved in as much as you can. You’ll meet some incredible people throughout your journey at Ulster.
