Grant Rattray

Where are you from?
Aberdeen, Scotland.

What was your undergraduate degree?
I joined the course based on my experience as a web designer rather than from an undergraduate degree. I have worked as a web designer for the last 8 years after gaining an HND in web development in 2010.

Why did you decide to study an MSc in Digital Marketing?
I decided to study MSc in Digital Marketing to offer more value to my clients as a business. I have run a web design business for several years and feel Digital Marketing is an important factor for my clients to make the most of the website I build for them.

What do you like best about the course so far?
I have enjoyed working with a live client during the first semester. I found the process of planning and proposing a digital marketing campaign for this client very engaging.

What’s your favourite app or website, and why?
Snapbridge is an app I have been using a lot lately. I have recently been learning photography and this app allows me to sync photos from my camera to my phone, edit/retouch and share to social media from within the app.

Tell us a random fact about yourself!
I share the same birthday as the Queen.
