I am very good with numbers and mathematics, therefore I thought I would enjoy studying Accounting and Finance. The UoB is near to my home and saves me time of travelling and also cost.
I have achieved a first class Bachelor's degree at the University of Bedfordshire, which enabled me to apply to Jubilee scholarship within the university. I got it and had the full cost of my Masters degree paid by the University!
The course is focused on self-study more than learning in class, and I think that prepares you for employment. However, I do enjoy group work and examinations. The tutors are very helpful, they welcome students in their office hours to discuss any issues.
All the necessary facilities are available; I mainly use the group working areas, library, IT Suite and the Business Source Premier database.
As a result of my studies, I've learnt to do things independently and work with people from different cultures.
I would recommend MSc Accounting and Finance because it is an excellent opportunity to further your career within one year.
After graduating from Media Production at Bachelor degree level, I felt Marketing Communications studies appealed to me based on my background. I had an option to attend the Royal Holloway University or the University of Bedfordshire. I chose the University of Bedfordshire because of the financial advantages and the value for money.
The biggest challenge for me was working within groups of people from different backgrounds, and experiences we had on live campaigns that were assessed. The course gave me a better understanding of the industry, prepared me for different roles within marketing campaigns, as well as developed my self-confidence.
Want to be part of the marketing industry. The course helped to produce my portfolio and allowed me to prepare for entry into the industry.
The University offered to improve my computing skills and engage with professional bodies and organisations through seminars and guest speakers.
The teaching is excellent and the lecturers are highly engaging. The knowledge gained through the course teachers makes you to think outside the box.
I decided to study on the EMBA as part of my agreed Personal Development Plan with my line manager. I felt that the EMBA was a natural next step in my career progression. I believed that the course would allow me to gain insights into theory and practice for business managers. I chose to study at the UoB as I felt that I could relate my studies and my day to day working more closely by studying and working within the same organisation.
The skills that I have developed the most are those relating to management and leadership. This has greatly supported me in my first role as a line manager and in supervising a team. The learning around strategy and implementation of strategy into organisational operations has greatly improved my understanding of the work of my team and how this impacts on the wider business of the Faculty and University.
The best aspects of the course are meeting and working with others from a variety industries and sectors and sharing different experiences. I think that this is a great course for business managers. It offers a good step forward for people who are developing in management roles. The course also offers a good opportunity to consolidate knowledge for more experienced business managers.
The fact that the University of Bedfordshire is investing highly in students and continuous growth was one of the reasons why I chose this University.
My course has given me confidence and grip over HR field and I think the most important thing this course instilled is the ability to critically evaluate and solve HR related problems in academic and organisational setting.
The assignments were of practical nature through which I learnt a lot. The group discussion activities and seminar activities in the classroom were the most practical learning experience which allowed me to think out of the box and to think beyond the subject.
Before coming in this University I was expecting a high quality teaching facility and Bedfordshire lived up to my expectations in this regard. I'd give ten points out of ten to my lecturers. The University of Bedfordshire is the best!
The MA Intercultural Communication satisfied my interests in the themes of cultures, values, language, and communication. Coming to the University and being able to meet with the teaching staff helped me decide to go ahead and apply for the course. Bedfordshire is a multi-cultural place to learn about people from different backgrounds.
The academic skills that one develops during the course of postgraduate studies can be hardly developed otherwise. Critical thinking, the exposure to a wide range of ideas, and the depth of knowledge are all vital to postgraduate studies, and they are definitely able to impact one's practical life.
I am planning to be an interculturalist/cultural trainer. The University has given me the chance to teach Communication Skills at the Department of Language and Communication. Such experience has positively impacted my teaching and training careers.
The time at the University of Bedfordshire has been one of the most enjoyable periods of my life.
Studying on a Masters level is a challenging opportunity as a whole. My LLM course requires much hard work and reading lots of information in a short period of time in comparison to students who study Law on undergraduate.
I think that lecturers are the main factor of the good reputation of this institution. What I appreciate much is that the LLM course leader really cares about how we prepare for our lessons and the way in which we present our knowledge. The so called disputes which we do with my classmates are similar to cases that are considered by the Court. Putting the knowledge into practice this way is very useful for me.
The course uses a lot of case studies and tutors have a wide range of experience students can learn from. There is also a lot of group work and presentations. Finally, at the end of the Events Management unit, student groups organise a fundraising event to put theory into practice.
My favourite are all events related units, as learning about that was the main reason I started the course. However, I also enjoy the research principles and practice units as they teach me a lot about academic studies and writing, and the team taught units as you get a lot of different input within one unit.
I developed my in-depth research skills, project/event management and communication skills. I would ideally like to own an events management company in a few years time. Bedfordshire helped with teaching the necessary skills and providing opportunities to apply theory to practice.
I would recommend this course because it has experienced staff, international student body and a challenging but interesting curriculum.
The course fitted my interest and I had heard it had a strong teaching team and good student support, so I chose Bedfordshire. I came from Taiwan, where a lot of people with undergraduate degrees are unemployed, so I want to increase my employability by studying on a Masters level.
My favourite aspects of the course are leisure psychology, where we learn about the things customers are really looking for, and marketing, as I am finding out new ways to promote and grow a business.
I think studying aboard is good for your future. Look at the variety of courses as there is a lot of choice. The University of Bedfordshire is a place where you will enjoy quality and success if you work hard and are committed.
