Why did you choose to study in London?
London has always been a dream city for me since childhood. I aspired to pursue both my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees specifically in London. It’s a multicultural city, which makes it a first choice for international students. There are also top-rated universities located in London, with excellence in academia and support for students. You can gain practical experience which gets you closer to achieving your career goals. London provides immense career opportunities beside your university life and is a great city to network, explore and have a fantastic social life.
How did you choose your course and university?
I have always been very focused on business and management studies. I was passionate about pursuing my 24-month MBA International Business qualification to become an entrepreneur! I believe each student must choose the right course, the one they feel passionate about. Before I chose my MBA IB, I carried out research, compared universities within London and also looked at how courses would support my future career. Choosing University of Greenwich was my best decision ever! Greenwich’s location comes with all the things that a student desires to experience in their university journey – social life, history and culture, diversity, student societies and stunning buildings with modern facilities and cafes all around.
I previously studied BA (Hons) Business and Management at the University of Sunderland in London (UOSiL), which is near Canary Wharf. This gave me an opportunity to be a part of one of the financial districts of London and provided me with access to global networks – both of which were beneficial for me professionally and academically.
What have you enjoyed most during your time as a student in London?
Getting international exposure through social life: I learnt so much from the international friends I made and loved getting exposure to their cultures and lifestyle.
I get to explore some beautiful places in London such as The Shard and the Westminster area and, of course, shopping on Oxford Street.
I also really enjoyed my internships. I’m currently doing a one-year MBA IB internship at the University of Greenwich and I am finding this experience so incredible and amazing. My role is student-facing and very engaging. Through these experiences, I’ve achieved professional and personal development and today I feel more confident and aim to achieve more in life
How would you describe London in three words?

London is so welcoming and vibrant that it becomes a home for every international student. It really is the ultimate city where you can get international exposure and career opportunities, both from your chosen university and externally, which can change your life.
