UCB’s Marketing Management course has the modules I was looking for as well as offering great, affordable accommodation in the city centre.

They lecturers are kind and approachable and I have always received the support, guidance and advice that I needed during my studies, whether this was help with my assignments, CV and interview tips or just where to find the coolest events and activities going on in Birmingham. UCB always has answers for me.

After working part-time jobs during my final year of study, I have since been promoted from being a bartender at Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre to their Sales Director – all within one year. Sales was a big part of my marketing course, so I am determined to do my best to excel in my role.

My advice to other business students is to stay focused and see any obstacle or challenge as an opportunity to grow and improve. Never stop learning and striving for development and, most importantly, enjoy yourself! UCB is a community of great people with plenty of unique opportunities and experiences.
