Our international students describe their RU experiences.

Reykjavik University, 2017

Reykjavik University is very closely
connected to the industry of Iceland. This gives our students a unique opportunity in
a very close-knit, advanced, developed industrial society to have access to industry, specialists and
opportunities that very few universities can offer. I really like the place. Everybody is very nice
and is always willing to help you. I selected Iceland mainly because
of Iceland itself, because of the nature. But on the other hand the
school is also very good. It’s a very high
energy environment. We have geothermal and
we also have a lot of water because it rains a lot,
hence hydropower. And there is
also a lot of wind. It’s an opportunity for me to learn a number of
innovative renewable energy technologies and be able to utilize
them when I go back home. In corporate finance we are few people,
small classes and a lot of discussions. A lot of interaction between students and teachers.
So it has a personal feel to it. Here in the computer science department
there is a very advanced course Here in the computer science department
there is a very advanced course for game design and virtual environments.
So that’s the main reason that brought us here. Classes are a lot smaller here and
you have a lot more regular assignments like group work
and presentations. I feel that there is a much more direct
relationship between teacher and student. With much more dialog which
can really help improve your studying. We really sit down with our students
and we tailor the program to each student. Our primary purpose is to educate the
specialists and the leaders of the future. I’m working in the subfield of mathematics
called combinatorics and I work with quite simple
mathematical objects. We’re teaching the computer how to prove
things about these mathematical objects. This is very new. You have study spaces
you have lecture halls and you also have a very nice
library where I study a lot. I think it’s really advanced, a lot of
access to innovative and modern stuff that really makes learning
and studying easier. It’s been really nice. We have met
a lot of different people and we are always doing
something. We have full schedules. We live in the capital and
there is always something to do a lot of cultural events, dancing and places
to meet people and just hang out. At one point it was
a hard decision for me. But when I came here then I knew it was the
right decision. So I’m very happy here. Something that I really liked
was that it was Iceland. So it was perfect, I could study and come
to an amazing place at the same time.

Beginners guide to writing a dissertation

This video goes through the different sections of a dissertation, both at undergraduate and master’s level. Degree dissertations, Structure of a dissertation, research dissertations for beginners. Dr. Charlotte Meiedirk. Course Leader MBAs, Brighton Business School.

okay what I'm going to do is I'm going to go through the basic layout for our dissertation and that's the same at undergraduate and at the Masters level via my teacher education my teacher a master's degree in educational leadership and management and the dissertation sections are actually still very similar to those undergraduate level they're just of course a bit there's a more depth and the sections are longer so dissertations tend to be undergraduate level around ten thousand words masters level around fifteen thousand words so Jerry speak can you'll start with an abstract now people ask you well what what's an abstract what is an abstract an abstract is done pretty much basically summarizes were the way I do them is kind of summarize each chapter including the conclusion your recommendations I would say for a ten thousand words fifteen thousand word dissertations it's around the abstract for me about a page long and no longer it shouldn't be like two or three pages for that kind of length it really just summarizes very briefly each chapter and your recommendations okay next then you have your content page and I won't go through all the different sections because in the content page you also have Biggers and diagrams of where they are and next you'll have your introduction chapter that just introduces what your actual research is going to be on what the main literature is in that area but of course briefly it might give some background to that research it also will tell the reader what your movie overall aims are of your research so you might have let's say for example three aims of your research what you tend to achieve is going to be telling those within your introduction and actually revisit them later but I'll come back to that okay so that's your introduction chapter next you have your literature review mail it's your review do I tend to teach it is it may not just be one chapter it could be one chapter with different sections depending on the length of it or it may actually be a couple of chapters but again it depends on the length of this patient and the literature you're covering so what you're doing there and your literature review another video on what is a literature review and what you should do but you're going through the main let's share the arguments are there any different sides those argument any ideological underpinnings that go with that literature one side versus another and like I've got another video on what makes a good literature review but that's your lecture review so you establishing who the main theorists are within that area of research and what the arguments on the side and with the Masters dissipation I might even expect you to see where the gaps are and where are the gaps in the literature and and why therefore are you doing what you are doing okay such your literature review next is kind of like your methodology now your methodology will go through what well at masters level it might go through your epistemology what your kind of ideology is your underpinnings for doing the type of research you are doing you might be looking at different research approaches for example interpretivism and positivism and again I've got a video on that but I only expected to that at masters level not at undergraduate level although sometimes I do sit but you wouldn't necessarily have to do things like epistemology on ecology in your dissertation and some of you would be very happy to know that is the case but at masters level I expect you to touch in it I expect you to then go into what kind of research methodology you're using so I use in there for example a case study are you doing a survey are you doing at an action research which a lot of teachers for example do so within the methodology also expect you to go through your research methods what methods you are using questionnaire etc advantages disadvantages literature introduced literature on those methodologies and also ethics section will be in with your methodology as well which is really very important if you're doing an empirical research so after the methodology ends you've told your reader what research methods you are using to meet your aims of your research next what you have is actually research analysis so it might be the research results first and then the analysis okay sometimes they can go together in a chapter because that makes sense and then other times they might be separate chapters depending on the length again of your dissertation and again I'll go through in a later video what makes good research analysis I mean generally speaking the better your what's called a conceptual framework your better and your analysis so if you actually base in your analysis on a some kind of framework but again I'll come back to that that's more likely to occur at masters level rather than undergraduate level as well so after your research analysis and and you've analyzed all your research then what you'll have is your recommendations so I'm going to run out of room here from recommendations and conclusions now depending on your type of dissertation so it might be for example you are doing a recommendation for something may be action research and you're trying to find better ways to teach English grammar or better ways to teach maths with at Key Stage two then your recommendations are from your research that you recommend whatever approach you might be to teach him for example and then you'll have a conclusion now generally speaking dissipations do have some type of recommendation I suppose not all but then you have a conclusion chapter as well in the conclusion chapter is really most importantly you revisit those aims your initial aim and say to what extent you actually met those aims throughout your research and also within your your recommendation conclusion if occlusion chapter you might also look at limitations to your research now generally speaking the limitations are very similar especially for undergraduate masters students that are doing a part-time usually as things like time not surprisingly best if you're for example in full-time job and also things like maybe money would limit how big perhaps a survey is that you undertake etc okay and then of course after that you'll have your references and your appendices which will go at the end as well that's pretty much basic structure to your dissertation but each section of course you need to think about in a lot of detail so good luck

hi everybody welcome back to my channel in today's video I wanted to talk about studying film and television at university because it is a big decision for a lot of creative young people out there whether they want to go to university to study film and as I myself study television production course I thought that I could offer you some advice if you're hoping to do the same in this video I am going to cover if you actually need to study a degree to get a good career in film what courses and what universities you should be looking out for on how to find the right course for you and how to make yourself stand out in the crowd and ways to get your name out there and a HobNob stuck in my throat I wanted to start the video by addressing the elephant in the room which is the assumption then you don't actually need a degree and fill up my consolation to have a good career in film and television and that is 100% true so people can go straight from school or day levels or college into a trainee role or a placement or an internship with a really good media company and I can be there starter point and other people go to university get a degree spend three or four years of their life and a lot of money on a degree and end up applying for the simulations that you could apply for your school or shader to college the thing to bear in mind is that whether or not you go to university we're all going to start at the same position we're all going to start off those runners interns unpaid work experience people junior researchers it's just the way it is with this industry unless you're seeking so really the decision whether or not you go to university to study at the moment television is completely up to you and I'm going to tell you a couple the pros and cons about University and by university lightning and why you should or should not decide for me partly based on your home personally of your own career aspirations a little bit about me just to contextualise this I am suckier be a television production student studying in Bournemouth and I'm absolutely not that I had to fight for my place here I got rejected straight after my levels with an external TVs and I I knew I wanted to come to Bournemouth so I went off and I did a foundation to build my own arm design which I got a distinction in what we got my creative juices flowing and helped me to see that this is what I want to do I got accepted after that with an unconditional offer which is fantastic and I came over and I started my degree in media production I hated it it was so stressful that was what I wanted to do I knew I wanted to work in television and film I didn't want to be making websites I didn't want to be making radio broadcasts so I had to swap courses which was a lot of stress and a lot of worry but now I'm happily studying television production and I couldn't be happier because the course is exactly what I wanted to study if you're passionate about film and television you need to research research the courses that appeal to you team for me there's nothing worse than arriving at university and you tired all excited about the course on spending the first year using it and have it to swap so do the research upfront make sure that you know exactly what the course is before you go into it so that you don't have any hard decisions to make when you are I the best way to do this I know your teachers or careers advisors are probably talking about this so much is the you guys website it has a lot of courses listed on it 99.9% of the courses in fact and if you type a film in television it will bring up all the information that you need related to those courses in every institution across the UK it's something that I didn't do enough for even though I had the first year research on the second year to research I didn't research enough and that's where I did my mistake don't get lured in by the descriptions on the university websites or in the brochures because sometimes that can take the course off to be something look at its reputation look at reviews from current students look at the ratio of theory to practical work because that is so important as well University is not just about the degree that you study I have to say that as well people who go straight into the media industry entry-level job in TV or film miss out on three years of fantastic life experience for me university is a chance to grow then I came to university when I was 19 years old fresh out of college still a naive teenager I since then I've roomed so much I've had so much life experience I've been through some terribly hard times and that is to be expected with University get to learn how to make bills for the first time in to mimic the house you have to manage your money how to survive Sanibel really stretchy but it's nice to push yourself it's nice to do something if you have the opportunity to go to film school or university do something that's going to really push you creatively something that's gonna make you work hard on balance a social life with and all the finance that comes along with it now I want some of the downsides to university which are many as I said the course might not be everything it's cracked up to be what if that's the key is you can change you can change courses is never too late you can transfer universities you can transfer courses where they haven't seen University and you're paying so much money to be there between these and accommodation costs and food costs and emotional costs you are paying to be there so you should be honest with yourself if you're not happy there do something about it sometimes problems can come up while you're at university like relationships issues with yourself you'd be like you can't cope with all the stress or the work but university is always have support available for you so if you're worried about going off to screen to place by yourself and not being able to make friends don't worry about that at all I was so socially awkward before I came to university and it's honestly made me into such an honorable person on such a more confident person and I feel so grateful for those first few weeks can be crazy but it's so worth it you might be worried about the debt that you're going to have I was worried about that too until I realized that I'm probably not really ever going to pay it back so if you've applied to university and you've gotten accepted that's amazing well don't make sure that you make the correct choice on the course on the University for you it's not anyone else's decision it is completely up to you and it is your decision to live with for three or four years so meet their I wanna no pressure now I want to how to make your son stand but this is really important especially when you're applying for universities we if you're applying for a film or TV course it's important that you have a youtube channel or a blog or some kind of social media space that showcases your work and your personality also it's just cool to work on stuff outside of school and I saw a college like a YouTube channel I love my YouTube channel and it's a really nice escape especially if you go to university it's something that you can continue to work on while you're there the next thing that I'm going to suggest that you set up is a LinkedIn account because LinkedIn is a really good professional social media and networking site which allows you to upload your CV or the projects that you've worked on photos from any productions that you've worked on and is a really really good place to meet industry contacts or if you have any specific strengths for example I bought camera operation on to my LinkedIn and other people who come across your LinkedIn profile Kim like thumbs up on those skills so that people can see of this person regular camera operation maybe I like them for my internship maybe I want them on my company I really recommend that you set it up similarly there is a new social media website for creative people and industry contacts called hive and it's fantastic and it's really like cool and quirky and it's different collecting because it's full of young people you into the industry I recently went to Chum for pop up day in Bournemouth which is fantastic and they set it all up through hive so if you want to stay up to date work opportunities in your local area or at the universities that you're going to go to check out hive link in the description box as well set up a profile you can be friends and of course I think if you want to get into fellow the TV particularly a show really is important even though some of the universities if you might not even want to show real it's good to have one to show people and to look at what you've created so far and say ok I'm good at this or I'm not so good at this or well I really don't have anything to show for a passion in film and TV passion is the most important thing passion is what will keep you seeing throughout your time at University and what will drive you to react uder more inspiring better projects so that is my advice for you if you want to go into film and TV at university I hope you enjoyed the video give me a thumbs up if you did be sure to subscribe to my channel if you want more videos good luck if you're going to university and I'll speak to you soon bye

At Sitka WhaleFest science symposium and festival, university students experience career inspiration and renewed motivation for STEM coursework at a critical juncture in their college careers.

Sitka WhaleFest is a 3-day annual marine science symposium and festival in Sitka, Alaska. Students attend engaging lectures and meet with presenting scientists in small group discussions. Everyone participates in marine cruises and wildlife and cultural workshops, art and music events, a film festival, receptions, and a banquet.

In preparation, undergraduate students take a fall semester course reading and discussing work published by Sitka WhaleFest speakers in advance of traveling to Sitka WhaleFest. (At the University of Alaska Southeast, this course is BIOL 375: Current Topics: Discussions in Marine Mammalogy) Lower-division undergraduates are matched with upper-division undergraduate peer mentors during the event.

[Applause] hey guys I want to take you all on a tour of a typical flat in a student accommodation building here in Edinburgh most of the ones I've seen are very modern and minimalistic in the UK most students get their own private bedrooms in their dorms unlike in the u.s. where we have to share a bedroom about this size with one or often two other students when you first walk in there's a bathroom on the left and a few hooks for coats on the closet to your right while the rooms in this building all had ensuite bathrooms some other buildings have shared bathrooms and showers the bathroom is a really nice size for one person you can see it's all in one with a toilet sink mirror and a stand-up shower with a glass door from what my friend said she's never run out of hot water while showering it's not a bad size closet and along with the rest of the storage space should work for most people just fine Joe and I were surprised to find out that this room cost six hundred and sixty pounds per month which is more than our flat all utilities however are included in the monthly price it's important to know that the cost of rent is always changing to check the current prices I've included the links below for you I liked that it had a full-length mirror the prices for these rooms are per person so you're sadly not allowed to share a bed and bathroom with a significant other and split the class I was surprised to see that the rooms had double beds instead of single or twin size and thought the reading light was a really nice touch under the bed is more storage space which I totally should have shown but didn't because I suck I love the big window which provided a great amount of natural light each room has its own desk for studying there are some extra shelves by the desk these accommodations are specifically targeted to postgraduate students while others are aimed undergraduates just down the hall the common room connects with the kitchen and has a nice and pretty large flat-screen TV I thought it was well decorated with the bare essentials including a couch some extra seating and a coffee table there's a community board which these flatmates use to coordinate cleaning schedules and get information on social events occurring the kitchen came with an electric kettle microwave oven and toaster you however have to bring your own mug glasses plates bowls silverware and cookware you should coordinate some of this stuff with your flatmates though of course I liked that there were two ovens two stove tops and two refrigerators you can see the refrigerator part is on top and the freezer section is down below thank you so much for watching if you enjoyed this video please hit that like button if you want to see more videos like this please subscribe and comment below to chat with me see you soon [Applause] [Applause]

Why study at UCL History?

New promotional video for students thinking about undergraduate study at UCL History. Features current students and members of academic staff.

my name's Jason easy I'm the head of the history department at UCL what I think makes a great history department it's not just having right ingredients and world-class researchers amazing teachers but also how these things are blended together and how they relate to each other Katherine Thomas I do history French STL and I'm going into my fourth year hi my name is Jonah I'm a third year ba history student my name is Santos North I mean just outside my fourth year of history with European and UCL history is one of the rare departments I believe that isn't both warm and welcoming but also supportive and encouraging for those not only those that come in new to the department but also to the students who may be less familiar with the City of London study somewhere big and exciting and there's nowhere really more big and exciting in London in my opinion and for me UCL was kind of the best of both worlds because you've got the good city location I mean we're stuck back in the middle unda it's also got quite a nice campus feel you kind of come off Gareth Street and it's this nice little university bubble speaking a language around like Italian French German Spanish it just opens you to a whole world of literature of media of and of people of course students I know doing history and history of France that are now graduating we're going on to do a whole a whole lot of different things at different careers some are going to do masters whether in history or in business some are going onto teaching perhaps in the teach first graduation scheme and others are doing journalism and hoping to break into the world of media so there's a whole array of careers that you going into now if taking a history degree at UCL is an exceptionally exciting thing to do we've also constructed reconstructed the degrees so we've sought to make them clearer to students we've sought to make them accessible to students and in particular we've sought to make the transition from school level studying of history to university level study of history as easy and as friendly as it possibly can all of these courses that bring students right into research projects teach history and again something that is distinctive and very special panel is the landmark carrier service of the department we basically create an opportunity for our students to meet with UCL alumni who are at their different stages of their career the panel consists of four or five different museums I don't know who work in different sectors such as an NGO and investment banker someone working for a legal office I'm Charlotte I studied history undergraduate here at UCL and graduated in 2004 and started working at Linklaters in 2006 after studying at law school as a department we have an extensive careers program we were pretty close of it you see our parents my advice to someone starting out on a new career having graduated is first of all pick something you think you're interested in doing and then really just try and stick with it for a good amount of time before I came to see how I thought I had a vague interest in have the ties in the marketing but I didn't really know much about it we found that UCL advertising and marketing and gas sadly I was quite a lot of work but it's definitely been worth it so from the very first weeks that students are here and then throughout their to bring it every stage whether green we want students not just to to read think about critique the work of other historians what other historians have written but also to engage in the process of doing research engage with that primary source material develop their ideas develop their own arguments and their own insights and ultimately and we think that London and their department in the heart of London is absolutely the best place in which to do this surrounded as we are by some of the world's greatest museums art galleries archives and libraries and surrounded indeed by the rich history the amazingly rich history of a global city you

one of the things that is really unique and special about computer science degree in Cambridge is that you're gonna be taught by cutting at world leaders in their own fields who are really excited about their work the course of Cambridge involves pretty much anything that you can think of to do with computers and technology from really foundationally theoretical material on automation of mathematics at one extreme – intense funding projects at the other I've always been fascinated by the way that computers can solve problems both for myself and for other people and that's that's really really interested in me so it seemed like a natural thing to study when I went to university I've always enjoyed doing logic puzzles small challenges and also I wanted to learn everything that I could about computers which I think computer science embodies perfectly but also I want it to be in a really good challenging environment which Cambridge offers and have all these brilliant minds around me computer science at Cambridge seemed just the right course our course is structured so that we teach our students the theoretical background that underpins the principles of computer science but also with their hands-on experience of putting that theoretical knowledge into practice my favorites perience on the course so far has been the group project in my second year in which I worked with a group of people to produce a piece of software for a company I got to present the project to all the other students and the people from other companies and it was really exciting the employability prospects for our graduates are really first-rate we're also a very intrapreneurial place so lots of our graduates go on to found their own companies and startups one thing that we find out when we start studying computer science is that this is a subject that opens up so many different doors we can we can work in many different fields doing many different things what I would like to do is go and work for a software company and maybe with that learn some skills in my own so I can I can start my own in the future and solve problems my own way by applying for masters and then going on to do research either here at your lab or an industrial research I feel I will be able to bring a contribution to the field of computer science fundamentally computer science ends up being about solving really hard problems in the best possible way so if there's one key thing that you couldn't come away from the Cambridge degree in computer science with it's being a really really good problem solver we are genuinely interested in people who are self motivated and passionate about technology if you're curious then come to us and we will teach you the theoretical and the practical ways of how you can build systems that are going to make our world a better place Oh

Kingston University student Jack talks about his experiences as a Drama with English Literature student. Find out more at and

my name is Jack mcnaught and I am studying drama with English I chose to study at Kingston because when I came here I was very impressed not only with the university itself but with the town and the location that it's in the town's really pretty really nice it's see it kind of gives the impression that's a bit of a student town so it's quite quiet when students down here which I particularly liked so it means that there's always someone around that you can talk to and mingle with which is really cool when I went to the open day the lecturers came across as a lot nicer than some of the other universities a lot more approachable a lot friendlier and so that was probably one of the biggest deciding factors if not the biggest the aspect of the course that I enjoy the most is how it can be tailored to suit what you want to do it's it's it's modular based so you can choose to go in whatever direction you want and you can choose to do a lot of different things there's so much variety and especially with drama so you could you can do things that were previously inaccessible as well like cabaret or clown things that you might not even have heard of or knew even existed that you could learn and so that's particularly interesting about University I did draw a steady drama at school at a-level and GRCC and studying it at university is very different in the sense that there's so much more that you can do a level it tends to be very much about naturalistic acting Stanislavski which which is very interesting but it becomes very boring and so here at university you can do things like clown with the aim of them putting on a clown performance in in Kingston in front of a public audience which from history has been really successful that is very enjoyable you could do things like cabaret where you can do burlesque stand-up comedy dance comedy sketches in it's limitless and they have a very successful run of cab reacts in Kingston a couple of the local bars and venues which is really interesting and if you end up coming here you should then you will get to see these but you cannot you can of course still do things like naturalism and what's particularly good about naturalism at this uni is its trip it's taught by a professional actor and so he helps you to give the gives you advice on how to get into the industry as well as well as very interesting stories from his past experiences in the industry so yeah there's a huge huge choice at uni available resources at Kingston apart from the reg Bailey building itself which is building entirely separate of any other part of the university that just holds the drama students which is amazing you can we also do have quite a few lectures at the Rose Theatre itself in the row studio which is a small sort of room where you can practice and rehearse and whatever which is very interesting we have a lot of connections with the Rose Theatre we've put on several productions in the past on the main stage and especially during summer when the International Youth Arts Festival is on we we often spend quite a few performances there and they often get really good reviews the drama building the reg Bailey building has the main performance based rb7 which is is basically a small theatre and its own right and then there's lots of rehearsal spaces around it it's where all the lecturers are based as well so if you ever need to talk to them about a drama related question they're always there 24/7 and and they're always happy to help you which is very nice the teaching methods that use at Kingston University we in your first year particularly you will have lectures you have sort of two lectures a year where the whole the whole year comes together and but that's only for first year for the second year and third year it's main mainly seminar based where you're in groups of between twenty and thirty people which is really good because you don't stay with the same group all the time you mix around a lot so you're always with different people which is very interesting because you get to know everyone on your year which is really exciting in terms of exams for the for the drama department they have practical exams so performances but they also but it's mainly essay and coursework based so you end up doing sort of three or four two thousand to three thousand word essays don't let that put you off they're actually quite interesting to write because it's things that you want to write about you you have much more scope to to choose what you want to do what you want to write about stitute something that interests you I have worked part-time while studying not so much in the first year because I managed to save up during summer which saw me through the whole year on a budget of about sixty pounds a week and that was fine I didn't often go over that but my second year now I I although I saved again over summer I've wanted to I had more more free time and so I've got a part-time job just working at the Student Union working in the student shop which is particularly good for students because they know you have to study and so there they will cater to your needs and they will give you hours enough that you can still do work and still do rehearsals and still go out and have a good time but also working at the student shop you've gone a lot of socials with with the other students as well which is really cool but not with just people from your year or with people from first and second year at so they all come together which is really exciting so yeah it's definitely possible to have a part-time job whilst while studying at University my graduation plans are a little bit up in the air at the moment um but there but what university teaches you is that it gives you the options to do many things you might come into university with just one firm job in mind but after having a year spent at uni doing different courses and things like that you realize there's actually a huge variety of jobs out there that you can choose and so whereas I came into uni with the aim the intention of becoming an actor when I came out of it or doing a ma course at a drama Conservatoire afterwards I'm now starting to think well actually I could I could do Direction directing or or film editing anything really and so it's a little bit up in the air but hopefully after the third year which where you have quite a few seminars and things about life after uni I have a firmer understanding but yeah I think I guess you could say I'd quite like to be an actor after after eating

Find out more about studying English Literature at Kingston University:

One of the really exciting things about studying
English Literature at Kingston is that it takes students into new territories quite
literally actually. So as well as studying the literature of the United Kingdom they
get the chance to explore the literature of Africa, the United States, of Ireland and
so on. And they also look at different kinds of literature, not just canonical
works from Shakespeare onwards but also popular fiction, genre fiction from children’s
literature to adventure writing. I came to Kingston because when I came to
visit on an open day everyone was really inclusive, the staff were really helpful and they were
very focused on me achieving what I wanted to achieve. I decided to study English Literature at Kingston University because initially I wanted to be
a teacher and that avenue is still open to me. However studying for this degree has shown
me that I have so many options available to me now that I'm doing this degree, so I can
go into research, I can go into something that involves cultural studies, I can end
up writing, so my horizons have been broadened since I've started studying. So even though I'm doing two courses the workload actually balances out completely evenly because
we're doing two modules from each degree which adds up to the same four modules that you'd
be doing in a full field degree. So really there's no increase in workload. My favourite thing about Kingston as a place to live is how close it is to Central London.
I get to go to a lot of shows, I get to play a lot of shows in Central London and all around
which is really fun. The benefits of living so close to London
are many. So, for example, this weekend I'm going to see Michael McIntyre perform in The
Coliseum and that is an incredibly easy journey for me. It's not going to cost me very much
on the bus at all and when I leave I'm going to be far enough away from Central again that
it doesn’t feel like the capital city, I'll be back in the country. My top tip for life at Kingston is getting involved with absolutely everything even if
you didn’t think it was something you were going to do before. So I started horse riding
from scratch. I've got friends who go skiing, I've got friends who are on the rugby team,
it's all about taking those experiences and making the most out of them as possible. The people you meet are going to be the people that you're working with and the people who
get you into societies and basically the people who you're going to be spending the rest of
your life with, so get to know them.

the economics degree at Brunel is designed so that when you graduate you will have the skills that you need to be able to go and demonstrate to any employer that you have a solid foundation in the subject we've got combinations of degrees that are made up of economics finance and accounting in different permutations I think the initial attraction super though I think had to be the campus it's quite a large campus and it's still situated in London so I thought that was quite a unique combination I also like the fact that I also encourage placement year option and I wanted to leave uni with more than a degree so I thought it's best to study here what inspires me about economics and finance is when I hear students who have completed their degrees who have gone out got themselves a fantastic position in the in organization that they wanted to go and work in who then come back and say I got the job because of my degree I got the job because I could sit in the interview and I could tell them not just what we need to do but why we need to do it and that is just so thrilling in the library there's the financial resources suite and there we have access terminals like Bloomberg and other resource and data terminals so that means we can gain information we need when you graduate you will be able to say I don't just know the software but I can use the software and I have used the software I completed my placement at Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation and this is a Japanese Bank in the City of London after this I decided that I would really love to work in asset management or wealth management so that's the area I'm currently applying for and you out there placing the factors employers don't recruit degrees employers recruit human beings and what that placement here gives you is a year in which you get to know the company and the company gets to know you and if you play your cards right you will end up with a job offer even before you come back to do your third year I think the highlight for me study that Bruno is making lifelong friends I know once I graduate they'll still be my friends and they've had a really positive impact on my life

I am Sofia first year musician at st. John's I was living in France but my dad because he's British he kind of knew about the whole Oxford things that it didn't seem as far-fetched but when knowing the Oxford has like amazing resources and and it's just a beautiful place then we came here for the open day and I was amazed they're so varied it really depends on lectures but it's usually just waking up going straight to a lecture then having lunch at all and then having either tutorials or more lectures and then if it's acquired a going to choir not going to like the concert or just hanging out with people obviously like working and working and everything but that's the same everywhere the tutorial system gives it a whole personal thing to it that you wouldn't get if you're in a classroom of 13 where you can't not do your work first of all and that's a big motivation to actually work for your degree but also you tutors get to know you better and they kind of figure out what you want and what you want to get out of your degree so it's it's a lot better to like focus on what you really want to do the dream thing to do for me would be go into a Conservatoire and and go into singing opera but that is yet a dream I'm working on it but to be fair I'm I'm not that scared about it for now maybe it's because I'm in first year but I think it's also because of the range of opportunities we get in anything after we finish this degree so I think it's not a given but you it gives you the freedom to do that if you want to do that so if you want to become an academic music it gives you the freedom to do that if you want to become the performer it gives you the freedom and the resources to do that so yeah I feel

I choose philosophy because there's no other degree course that I'd rather do really i think have to be quite passionate about a subject when you come and study at university because you're going to be devoting a lot of time to that subject and i think if you ask a lot of questions and philosophy is definitely a topic for you as the years progress you can have more choice of what you choose to study and then you'll specialize in different ones perhaps go into a reason argument lecture at the moment it should be quite excited we've had to add already so i feel like i know the module quite work out no day is the same there's never a dull moment everything is always exciting and you always leave a lecture asking questions what surprised me most is how helpful and friendly and approachable all staff are they're very welcoming as well and you have a professional relationship with them at the same time you can go up to them and ask them anything you like and they'll really help you when I finish I'd like to teach really i know that liverpool will provide me with a good basis to progress and achieve what I want to achieve and be successful up you

I really enjoyed understanding different relationships between people and people in the environment and what what ties into the environment and I suppose that's what makes me love geography the question in geography is why the map looks the way it looks and so what how does it matter for people how does it matter for society for economy the jobseekers Oxford seated me back because it was quite broad to start off with and I liked that as a fundamental base is that I could really develop my physical geography as well as my human geography geography is sort of course where you cannot get bored and used to the various different things when we can be studying I don't know the weathering of rocks whereas the next minute you can be talking about the experience of walking down the street and the politics of moving around the course starts fairly rigidly because we want to lay their foundations in the first year the basics of physical human geography geographical controversies and geographical techniques everyone needs to get up to speed on some things so you may be studying statistics but that doesn't put you off because it's great to have a certain level the second year you choose between two or three foundation courses so as human geography physical geography and most of environmental paper which I get to combine the human physical elements and while it is really flexible is that students choose free from a range of 50 or more options my typical week as a second-year geographer probably involves about two or three lectures and then one tutorial a week start of the week I got a reading list from my teacher that week and different books that I need to read for that tutorial I'll probably spend about two or three days going through and reading them and then one day right in the essay students decide on their own dissertation topics as long as they academically viable and practically feasible they can study and whatever they provided my dissertation about holidays in the mid twentieth century which is kind of neat I guess so long as an archival based dissertation so I spent a lot of time looking through old people's old holiday photo Berlin's brochures and things like that which is there which is quite interesting the risk field was involved in the first year and in the second year of the degree and in 38 years failing to sort of days away doing field work in the local area in Tenerife we and we split into teams and we basically had two kind of topics we were going to DQ fieldwork projects while we were out there and and one I did was sustainable tourism and the other one was to do with botanical gardens the kind of person it sort of does well in geography is a person that's interested in the people processes and the problems that are shaping our contemporary world one thing I've never come across before I came to Oxford and actually was kind of teased about it was that you color in all day and you shouldn't forget your coloring pencils and I would just like to say I have not used my coloring pencils and since deep before a level I really enjoy going to librarian and finding the different books I need this is so well stocked and there's some really beautiful libraries in an Oxford Oxford geography offers exceptional facilities to start with the Bodleian library Map Room has one of the biggest collections of maps and geography books in the world I found it really helped with my dissertation especially it's quite out the books are quite nice and quite specialists and it was helpful to sort of have that vicinity that we have all kinds of equipment needed for field work especially in physical geography we have a luminescence dating lab which helps you to date precisely whatever artifacts whatever rocks materials you collect during your fieldwork places like the Botanical Gardens in Oxford it's a great kind of place to and just enjoy your surroundings the tutorial system really appealed to me so the opportunity to sort interrogate a topic in a lot more depth we can week out and discuss that with the world leading sort of academic core researcher if you taught by the best researchers in the field days translate into great teaching because it's like being taught to drive fast cars by Lewis Hamilton or by Jenson Button you have to be very talented to keep up but what a thrill and what an exciting opportunity to fail and there is no limit to how much you can learn if you taught by people who really are the best so I guess when I first came as the server system is a little bit intense you know I kind of used to be important the spot to this sort of extent you are in a tutorial in and makes about yourself but then answer questions the tutorials are really great at getting you to understand the topic way more than just what you might have learned in lectures or read in books it's the opportunities to pursue new avenues and new directions and consider things in a different way in it if you're interested and passionate about your subject is not something to really be scared about where your teachers are greeting you every week what is great about dog sport is that tutors are available at colleges at the department but the trick is really to keep asking them what else can I do how can I improve you are largely focused on your weekly essays because that's how you learn is you're very self-directed and you have to go to library and you've got to read the right thing to include in your essays I probably spend about 30 hours a week come with tutorial essay I guess it's three eight-hour days and then six hours writing an essay it's difficult to do well to take writings by the Nobel prize-winner critically but this is what we expect right from the first year Docs for kind of teach Jesus or think in a way they interrogate everything and take something for granted and did you sort develop your opinions about everything it doesn't matter whether you studied it formally it doesn't matter actually whether you've traveled much or very little indeed it's about this kind of curiosity this interest in detail in difference in diversity between placements people's cultures and landscape I never really thought I was capable of applying to Oxford until a girl came into my 6 from college from Mansfield and did a low presentation and that was the point where I thought you know actually I can give this a go it's not just about having a million in one extracurricular activities in grade eight and flu and being part of the school debate society you know as long as you have an interesting your subject and your passion about and you're good at it that's all that matters of interviews I was the very important part of the process typically students are interviewed twice by two teams of two towards I remember thinking oh my goodness this is probably the scariest thing I've had to do in my academic career so far but actually was so relaxed and almost enjoyable if such a thing can be enjoyable often use maps we use graphs we use photo satellite images or even rocks and we ask students do but to make sense of what they see so it's very important to actually think on your feet apply your knowledge rather than coming with a kind of a rehearse story to tell about how good you are and what you had done before it was very much like a tutorial is now and it was my teachers or the interviewers asking and asking questions and trying to really draw out of me how I get to certain answers interviews cover both physical and human geography so one has to be prepared for both but having said that I wouldn't prefer in too much detail it's important to come with an open mind have an idea of of what you're interested in and specifically you know if you're interested in climate change read up about climate change have a few of your own thoughts about what we should be doing it is about being ambitious about being courageous about nothing like not letting yourself think that because I don't know anyone who studied at Oxford because no one from my family has gone to university before that I shouldn't study at Oxford if you have a passion for geography if you have good coz and good predicted high level results then you should definitely apply I wish I was working in st. at the time when I was accepted at cooks and I was it was there on a Saturday morning and the electric coming to pipes that day and my mum came over all the latter TV while I was working and only that I remember being really excited and happy to start sort of thing I never thought I'd get into Oxford especially having so many issues were like having fun if it was it it's pretty pleasing yeah I have to got the letter and my brother was standing behind me and had read it quicker than I had so I I was still in like the first line and he was like congratulations geography gives a very broad range of transferable skills from quantitative like climate modelling statistical modeling satellite image interpretation to qualitative like analysis of text images creative writing jokes is go into a lot of different things and and if the skills that you use as well as the degree kind of subject and and you learn a lot within geography many students work in the public sector they become teachers they work for government departments and maybe up to 50% of students go on to do further degree I would like to go into something it's not International Development and and I'd love to work for it after I finish my degree I am again teaching god I was in my future so if you really just take you in various different directions not even subjected you studied in many places the professions that sort of people go into a divergence digital reports and stuff quite a lot of stereotypes out there about the people that you meet here and the amount of work that you have to do by experiments really normal it's full of like-minded people indeed make really really good friends for life
