What was your undergraduate degree?
BA (Hons) English Studies

Why did you decide to study an MSc in Digital Marketing?
I was inspired to take part in the MSc by the description I read online.
I was looking for a new direction and something practical and technology based which I could pursue as a future career.
The course seemed to cover both a focus on learning new skills, opportunities to work with live clients and a definite focus area for work.

What has been your favourite part of the MSc degree so far?
My favourite part of the course so far has been working with established companies such as Fifth Ring and Digitas LBI to learn exactly what skills are needed in the digital workplace. I have found it incredibly enlightening to get the attention of people who know the digital skills gap and have their own expertise in the subject to share.

Tell us a Random fact about yourself!
I love food. I love eating and cooking in equal measures. I like to make food for other people more than I like making it for myself though.
