Student Profile(s)

Yuan Li

I planned to do a master's degree the first year of my undergraduate degree in China. Applying for the best jobs in China requires a master's degree with an international outlook and I was also very excited to study finance at a higher academic level.

I chose to study at the University of Bath School of Management because it has an excellent reputation internationally. I liked the varied teaching and learning approaches of the course. Typically the week would include lectures and seminars, as well as coursework and essays. The essays require critical thinking and group activities require all of the students to work cooperatively. Time management is essential if you want to meet the deadlines. The school also organised many activities, including meeting experts in Finance and Business and visiting successful companies around the UK.

My MSc has helped me to grasp knowledge I will need for my future career. I have learned to work with a wide range of people from different countries and backgrounds. In addition the careers support helped me with interview skills and understanding of recruitment processes. I am excited about the many opportunities that this course has opened up to me.

Bath is a beautiful city and it is easy to travel to the many other historic places nearby. I met a mixture of international students on my course and always had some good friends to travel with and to enjoy the pubs and cafes in Bath.
