(Student Profile)

Sunniya Saleem

96.JPG I was pursuing my undergraduate degree in Visual Communication Design in Pakistan when I got accepted on a Design program in London. During my undergraduate studies I visited Brunel University and attended the master student’s final year Design presentations. I was very impressed by the standard and quality of the work. After graduation I had options of either staying in London or going back to Pakistan. London had sort of started to grow on me, and I wanted to spend another year there. I got a few job offers, worked on a couple of projects, but wasn’t satisfied. I had worked on a couple of branding projects, but I wanted to analyze brands further and see their relationship with design. I decided to go back to the drawing board and apply for a postgraduate degree. I wanted to undertake a degree that would help polish my branding skills and provide me with a thorough understanding of the international Design market. I emailed faculty members at Brunel to get more information about the Design & Branding course and was overwhelmed with the response. The course was an exact match to my expectations.

The MA Design & Branding Strategy program at Brunel provided the challenge of independent exploration and stimulation with the help of professionals. I felt the course would help me strengthen my Design skills. The university itself would also be a positive contribution to my multi-cultural experiences as it was home to over 1500 international students.

The facilities at Brunel were simply superb, the availability of a 24hr postgraduate study center, access to computer labs, design studios and a huge library helped lure me towards Brunel more. The university’s campus was a huge determinant in my choice. Usually universities have small campuses or campuses split all over, but in Brunel everything was available in one place. It was a rich learning environment that helped me progress as an individual. Brunel transformed me from a student to a professional. It has been an experience of a life time both academically and socially. It was very encouraging to have a personal tutor who invested so much time and attention in helping me perfect my skills and my research.
