First-year undergraduate Xue talks about her experience at Nottingham so far.
Third-year student Matthew tells us how developing his skills through internships has led to a graduate job.
BA Economics and Philosophy
I chose to study with the School of Economics not only because it is one of the best in the country, with a high-quality of research, but because the school is very innovative and supportive in making sure that students' attainment is the best it can be.
Having personal tutors who are excellent and extremely knowledgeable about their research division and always willing to help has been of big help in my studies and desire to complete a masters degree next year. There are a range of optional modules to pick from, which are bound to cater to each student's interests.
The best part of my course has been the group presentations that I've had to do for optional economics modules in both second and third year. This is because I have had the opportunity to enhance my verbal communication skills and refine my ability to work under pressure. I have also been able to meet new people in my course that I may never have spoken to otherwise.
BA Economics with German
Economics was my favourite subject at A level so I decided I wanted to study it further. After visiting Nottingham, it was clear the school is well-organised, with quality teaching, and provides a lot of opportunities for students to customise their degree with a diverse range of optional modules and extra activities.
The best thing about my course is the broad range of topics it covers over both microeconomics and macroeconomics. I have enjoyed applying the knowledge learnt in seminars and in my current dissertation research.
Aside from this, I would say my year abroad was the best part of the course. I worked at Robert Bosch doing International Leadership Development in Germany. I got the chance to put my German skills into practise and develop myself in a professional environment.
I’ve also got involved as much as possible while at University. I have been a student ambassador for the school, a member of the Economics and Finance Society and have written articles for a German newspaper.
