Student Profile(s)

Angel Saunders

Why did you choose to study at Kent Business School?

I chose to study at Kent Business School (KBS) because it has a great reputation, and it was a convenient location for me as I live in Chatham.

What attracted you to your programme of study and why?

Having completed an undergraduate degree in nursing, I decided I wanted to gain further insight into the business world of healthcare to understand what happens behind the scenes of front-line nursing. The Healthcare Management Master’s gave me the opportunity to gain business knowledge across different areas and I was able to meet with several business orientated individuals. I also met with a variety of interesting people from different backgrounds and nationalities, which made seminar discussions more vibrant by bringing different views together.

What support do you receive as a student?

I received a lot of support from the tutors and administrative staff. During the COVID pandemic, the support I got from the University was enormous. There is a very strong network of people available to postgraduate students, from the union to the KBS careers department.

How does a postgraduate degree differ from your previous studies?

My postgraduate degree was delivered via lectures and seminars, and I was able to pick some optional modules that I was interested in. I was also exposed to the world of research at Master’s level, which will enable me to go on to do a PhD. Studying a postgraduate degree offered me a further higher education qualification in one specialised area and an additional set of skills for my CV.

Kent Business School is pleased to offer a range of hardship bursaries to UK and International postgraduate taught students who require financial support in order to undertake and complete their master's studies.

KBS Bursaries are awarded on the grounds of financial hardship and in order for us to offer such a bursary there needs to be reference to this within the application essay. For example, some of our students are parents (especially single parents) or mature students with heavy financial commitments. Some students may be registered with a disability and further funding will contribute towards the costs of studying and/or living, whereas others may be from a low-income family and find they need to raise funds themselves. Some may find that even with working part-time (which can put a strain on studies) they simply cannot raise the funds needed.
