Student Profile(s)

Holly Riddington

“I have always been interested in the built environment and urban planning but didn’t ever pursue this topic. I began working in Shanghai after graduating from in creative marketing and eventually came to know XJTLU and the MSc Urban Planning. Studying at XJTLU means a degree from the highly reputable University of Liverpool and I was extremely excited to start. My progression has led me towards urban design and I will be fully prepared to begin working in the industry on completion next year.”
