I was attracted to Surrey because of the depth and breadth of the course, the amazing facilities and, of course, the beautiful campus. The best thing about my course was how much I learned. It covered both theory and practical skills, and I enjoyed every moment. The lecturers were approachable and made the course really easy to focus on.
Meeting new people at Surrey really allowed me to come out of my shell and reinvent myself. I started out thinking I would be a scientist, but my time working on the student newspaper The Stag made me realise what career I wanted to pursue.
I now work as an infrastructure and energy journalist, but I still employ the skills I learned at Surrey every day. My undergraduate degree taught me a clear and high-quality style of writing, to be professional, and how to incorporate data and statistics into my writing. My degree has meant that I can occupy a niche area of journalism.
