Student Profile(s)

Caroline Stensli

Why did you choose to study at City University London?

I chose to study at City based on its good reputation and recognition both in the UK and abroad. City University is also ranked one of the top universities within MA Media and Communications.

What do you enjoy most about your course?

I enjoy the fact that it challenges me and requires me to think critically. There is seldom any right or wrong in media and communications, interpretations and individual experiences are therefore respected, and valuable in the overall learning process.

What has been your favourite module and why?

With six very different modules, it is difficult to choose one. The core modules have been different, but equally important for my fundamental understanding of the media industry and developments within communications. The elective modules have been more specialised and chosen based on my interests. Overall, the composition of modules makes out a personalised course, which will prepare me for my step towards a career.

What has been a highlight of your course so far?

It may seem obvious, but a highlight for me has definitely been realising what and how much I have learned from the course. I am saying this because the terms can seem rather overwhelming in the beginning, and I remember thinking that it would be impossible to write up an essay at the end of the term. However, when the time came I realised how much knowledge I had acquired and how many different ways I could approach the given topics. The ability to analyse and think critically also came more naturally than I had expected.

What do you plan to do after you graduate?

After graduating in September I hope to start working with public relations, either in London or Oslo. I plan on beginning the application process soon, to optimise my chances of getting a job by the time I graduate.

City has been a great experience for me. Besides having excellent academic credentials, the university has engaged and professional lecturers, who are available for discussion, help and support. The friends I have made have also been vital in making my time here so positive, and I am sure that we will keep in touch even though we come from countries all over the world.

Why did you choose to study at City University London?

Because of the close relationship City has with the business world.

What do you enjoy most about your course?

The great support offered by staff and peers. My experience at City has been great, not only the staff, university and its facilities, but also my peers. I have met some truly amazing friends and people at City that have taught me important lessons about life that I am grateful for.

What has been your favourite module and why?

My favourite module throughout this course has been transnational media and communication, because of the way the module was set up. Professor Chalaby offered interesting readings for each week and did a great job on expanding on the reading in classes and in seminars.

What has been a highlight of your course so far?

The guest lectures offered by the University, especially one about Brazil's future and how the country has developed.

What do you plan to do after you graduate?

I plan to work within advertisement or corporate communications.
