What did you find most valuable about your course at Westminster? How did the skills you learnt during your degree help you to shape your career?

I felt that the support at Westminster from both the tutors and from classmates was strong. Had I not been supported throughout my degree I simply would have not succeeded! This has made me learn how important it is to make the most of your support network to achieve the best results.

Why would you recommend Westminster as a place to study?

It's a great place to make good friends! I still keep in regular contact and meet up with friends I made at Westminster. What's more, London is the greatest city in the world so the experience you will have will be second to none.

What was the best thing about being a student in London?

The fantastic location of the Regent Street Campus meant that London's nightlife was on my doorstep! I couldn't resist making the most of London's world class nightlife whilst I was a student at Westminster.

What extra-curricular activities did you participate in that enhanced your time at the University?

Socialising with friends and classmates after lectures.

What advice would you give to someone thinking for pursuing a similar career?

Always remember your long-term goal and this should help you through the day to day tasks.
