"My experience at the University of Southampton is unforgettable. The academic atmosphere and experienced professors have inspired me."
I could not image I could apply project management knowledge to the practical project in my career or plan a practical project with the many highly able students. However, Southampton Business School has enabled me to do this. In semester 1, I took the APM Challenge to break myself in and perfect myself. All students are provided opportunities to communicate with professionals from various areas and apply the theoretical knowledge into the practical society. The channels of information are various and accessible. More importantly, those experiences have brought me confidence to welcome the new challenges in my future career.
"My academic aspirations are ever-growing, and my curiosity peaks as I am being introduced to new modules and areas of research. This is what makes my experience at the University of Southampton so rewarding."
Having the chance to learn from academics and practitioners who are leaders in their areas is a privilege. They have helped me cross frontiers I had never imagined I could. With a background in linguistics, I took a leap of faith in taking up business studies, and the diversity that I am still discovering within the programme is making this effort worthwhile.
It is a wonderful environment for learning, growing and immersing oneself in an international setting.
Minimum upper second-class degree from a UK university, or equivalent overseas/professional qualification; applications assessed on individual merit.
