I feel sure that the Marketing degree at Edge Hill University will equip me with the relevant skills in order to achieve my goals.

“I chose to study at Edge Hill University because I really liked the campus environment and the fact that the tutors have a teaching style that helps students fulfil their potential.

One of the best things about university life is the extra-curricular opportunities I have been able to take part in, which have really helped me to broaden my knowledge outside of my subject area.

I’ve presented my own radio show, which led to me running the student radio station during my second year, when I also managed to secure a new location to broadcast from. All of this has been very worthwhile as it has contributed to my personal development, providing me with key skills to enhance my employability.

As part of my BSc (Hons) Marketing degree I have recently undertaken a three month internship at Kenyon Fraser, a full service marketing communications agency, which I arranged while networking at a seminar held on campus.

During my time there I worked in account management – a role which involved helping the Marketing Director in his work with a number of highly valued clients.

Through this I gained a wide range of experiences. I also acquired an invaluable insight into an industry that has long held my interest, and one where I wish to secure employment in the future, which was very important to me.

When I graduate I want to work in risk analysis or embark upon a marketing graduate training scheme with a large and established company.

To help me with my aspirations I have undertaken an employability module as part of my degree, which has given me additional credits and a year-long membership of the Institute of Leadership and Management.

I feel sure that the Marketing degree at Edge Hill University will equip me with the relevant skills in order to achieve my goals.”
