Diana Iusco, Marketing, Advertising & PR BA (Hons)Why did you choose to study at the University of Worcester?

"I chose to study at University of Worcester because I am doing Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations here, and I really wanted to have a glimpse at all of these 3 subjects, and none of my other options offered this diversity."

How would you describe living in Worcester? A full experience.

"The city is small, but I really like it because I have gotten to know most of the places in Worcester, the usual ones, but it seems to me like thereís always something more to it. It is a great city for long walks, either by the river or not, it is really refreshing to take a long walk through the city. For some people itís too small, but the fact that itís so close to Birmingham is a really good advantage for the city. All in all, I think itís a beautiful city and it has a bit of everything: fun, relaxation, great views and is getting filled by new and interesting people every year!"

What do you enjoy most about your course?

"Its practicality. I like to actually apply what I learn, and to be able to use my creativity while doing so, therefore I like that we have the lectures and then in the seminar time we either create an ad, or a campaign or we assess an already existing one. I think itís easier to learn and memorize things while doing them, so this works really well for me and it also allows me to stay creative at all times."

What is the most exciting thing you have noticed or done?

"I have done a lot of things since I am at University. I like to keep myself busy, so I got involved in many things:† societies, volunteering, sports and so on. Still, up until now, my biggest achievement at university was that, along with a friend, I submitted a business plan in our first year and we got shortlisted to present it in front of the investors. And we did, and we won the Runner-Up prize! As a first year student I thought it was amazing, because just a year ago, I was in high school not knowing what I want to do, and now I was in my first year at University, doing and presenting a business plan! It was a great experience and it made me even more ambitious to get involved, try and learn even more!"

Why did you choose to study at the University of Worcester?

What is the most exciting thing you have noticed or done?

"Thatís difficult.†Highlights include activities in Future Weeks, company/industry visits (for example, to see Japanese-style management in action), being on the Bright Futures Committee.†The best thing is being a student academic representative (StAR)."

Teona Droc - Marketing, Advertising & Public Relations BA (Hons)

"Hello! My name is Teona and I have recently graduated with BA (Hons) in Marketing, Advertising & Public Relations from the University of Worcester.

"As an international student coming from Romania, I didnít know where I was heading to but I was sure that it would be an incredible adventure. I chose Marketing, Advertising & Public Relations because Iíve always been interested in how the industry behind all those fancy ads on TV worked and also in customer psychology (and because the title sounds very posh!).

"The three years I have spent at the University were an experience Iíll never forget. Looking back, I met so many interesting people whom Iíve learned so much from and made many friends and memories. Hopefully, Iíll get to share all of my memories with you and help you in your decision to come to University in the UK!

"If I had to do it all again, I would not think twice about it; Iíve had the best three years of my life!"
