Case Study

Business and Management is an outstanding course at the University of Sunderland where students can implement their theory and knowledge in a practical environment (e.g. workshops and seminars). What I especially like is that students get the opportunity to choose their own route in which to specialise, whether it be Marketing, Human Resources, Finance, or Enterprise Management.

In addition to this, there are many other opportunities available to students such as learning new languages, representing the student body as a Student Rep, taking part in societies (e.g. Business Society), Business Competitions (e.g. IBM), or working for 12 months on a Industrial Work Placement.

I am from Germany and after I finished school with “Abitur” (equivalent to British A Levels), I decided to spend a year in New Zealand as a volunteer. New Zealand gave me the chance to think about my future and I came to the conclusion that I did not want to go back to Germany for my study, I wanted to broaden my horizons again. Therefore, Sunderland was the best opportunity for me to do so. For me, it´s the city of “sun” with a beautiful sea side and an amazing campus located by the river.

I strongly recommend studying at the University of Sunderland, not only because it equips you with the right skills to survive in the competitive job market, it also gives you the “seeds” to be an outstanding and highly employable individual."
