When I first saw the International Events Management course at Surrey I was sold. It had the perfect combination of theoretical and practical work. Better still, it had a focus on developing a range of transferable skills, such as business, marketing and even accounting.
One of the best things about my course was that I was able to choose modules that I had a real interest in. Another great element was the practical experience, as we were given the opportunity to run our own live events from start to finish. I would definitely encourage future students to seize any opportunity offered to them at Surrey.
Having just graduated I am about to start my first job as a Business Development Representative for Amazon Web Services. While at university I did a marketing internship there which resulted in me having a confirmed job for when I graduated. Surrey definitely helped me find my feet in the working world.
