Second-year BSc (Hons) Business Management

I’m Charlie and I’ve just finished my second year studying Business Management, in Chelmsford. I’ve always been interested in business and I studied it in college, BTEC Advanced Diploma.

I applied late to ARU through Clearing. I was really pleased when I got accepted onto the course. I had to work hard in the first year to get to grips with the workload and to meet deadlines but once I got into the swing of things it was easier to plan my time and work. I’m going into my third year now and I’m in a good place to get the First that I want. My lecturers are inspiring, especially Cassie Jones. She’s really enthusiastic and makes you want to learn.

I’m also studying for an Institute of Learning Management qualification and I’ve already done the Bloomberg Aptitude Test, which is really worthwhile because it’s recognised by finance industry employers worldwide. I’m getting really good work experience this summer working as an intern in the university’s marketing team. As well as looking good on my CV it’s giving me the chance to put the theory I’m learning into practice.
