Case study: choosing a university

My name is Adam and I’ve just completed my degree in law. Let me tell you a little bit about my experience at ARU.

When considering university make sure that the course content has everything you’re looking for, or want to study further.

Ensure that the university gives you opportunities to enhance your knowledge outside lectures, through voluntary work or placements, as this is invaluable when applying for jobs. My course has enabled me to go on to postgraduate studies.

The course I chose has allowed me to study a subject that is of interest to me without specialising too much in one particular area. Using the state-of-the-art facilities and being lectured by professionals who are passionate about their subject and have experience in their field, has helped to keep my learning experience fun and interesting.

More importantly, ARU has given me opportunities to develop my employability skills through the Student Union Volunteering Service, Employment Bureau and working as a Student Ambassador, all of which have been fun and rewarding. I’ve made friends and had lots of new experiences through the clubs and groups on offer. You have to work hard, but there is a lot of fun to be had too!
