Student Profiles

Peter Rose

After a friend recommended the University to him, Peter Rose began his course in Business Management to improve his prospects and reach his career goals. Despite concerns about balancing studies and family, Peter worked hard and is now one step closer to his dream of becoming an HR officer.

“I have a friend to thank for recommending the University of Sunderland in London to me. They’d studied here and thought it would be ideal for me - and they were right! The location and course were both perfect so, to be honest, I didn’t look anywhere else. Plus the application process was really simple.

Balancing my studies with work and family was a big concern, but the University really motivates you to embrace the course. I’m currently working as a cashier but the whole point of studying was to unlock bigger opportunities and my ultimate goal is to become an HR officer.

There’s no doubt that my time here has helped me move closer to that dream. I was keen to give something back so I’m an ambassador for the University which I’m immensely proud of.

I can’t wait to graduate. I just want to get my cap and gown and celebrate all that hard work!”

Kenny Tuki

Kenny Tuki and her sister Taiwo decided to study for their Business degrees at the University of Sunderland in London to help their struggling company. Now, with the knowledge they’ve gained, their business is flourishing and Kenny has found a passion for working with students.

"I’ve co-owned my company with my twin sister Taiwo since 2005. It’s what led both of us to pursue a Top Up BA and a postgraduate degree in Business Management.

The company started as an immigration advice service, but around 2016/17 the client-side of our business was struggling. We’d launched it because of our backgrounds in paralegal work, but we’d found that there wasn’t as much of a need for the service as we’d hoped. We had to reassess and decided to pivot to a management consultancy. But that meant we needed to get more knowledge so we could advise our clients more effectively.

Studying at the University meant I could focus my course options on the areas of our new business I felt needed the most work. I found the modules on tailoring business strategies to companies of different sizes really useful. Plus the University is close to my business, which made it easier to study at the same time as working.

I even found myself getting really involved in the life of the University. I became a Student Ambassador, where I got to meet lots of people with different backgrounds and develop long-lasting friendships. I also become involved in exciting projects and assisted staff in hosting events and tours for our students.

Once I graduated, I decided to apply for a part-time role as a Student Relations Assistant. I was lucky enough to get it, but that’s on top of my business! Despite the extra hours, I feel like I’ve learnt a lot. I’ve been able to use my new knowledge to improve my company, which is doing better than ever."

Desislava Malcheva

Desislava is a student on the MSc International Business Management course. She’s using what she’s learning in her degree to help improve the retail company she works for and is on the way to fulfilling her dream of becoming a Human Resource Manager.

"I did my undergraduate degree in International Business Management in my home country of Bulgaria. I was lucky enough to study in English, which really helped when I decided to come to the UK to study for my postgraduate degree.

Between my undergraduate and my masters, I took a year out to work in retail. I didn't expect to find a passion for the industry. I quickly went from a Christmas temp to my current role as a supervisor. I started to find people coming to me for help and advice. Being there for people in my company is what motivated me to study at the University of Sunderland in London.

I want to become a Human Resources Manager and with the MSc International Business Management course, I'm learning how to do that while getting a wider view of business and management.

One of the main reasons I chose the University is because I can work at the same time as I'm studying. I wasn't sure which degree to choose at first, but the Recruitment team really helped me understand what would work best for my schedule. When I was accepted for the course, I found it was exactly what I was looking for.

I've been able to use what I've learnt in my job for my dissertation. Retail is known for having a high turnover so I want to know how companies can keep staff for longer. I'm looking at the stereotype that younger people are more motivated by money than the chance to grow and learn in business.

What I've learnt in class has been really helpful in my work. I use to be quite shy, but when you're doing research you have to speak to lots of people and present your findings. It really pushed me out of my comfort zone in a good way.

I've just submitted my dissertation and I can't believe how quickly the time has gone."
