I currently work as a graduate trainee at Hilton World Wide. I chose to study Business & Management because it offered me the flexibility and the choice to tailor my degree to suit my preferences. For example, I took modules in Accounting and Finance and European Law. During my time within SMB I found the lecturers to be very approachable, friendly and willing to help. Not only the lecturers but the admin staff were always there to lend a helping hand and offer advice.
Over my 3 years at Aber, I was fortunate to be a Student representative for my degree scheme and was president of the Biz society for 2 years. These opportunities gave me the opportunity to work closer with the department and get to know my lecturers a little bit better. The resource and networking link between the department and the university makes it possible to achieve any idea you can think of (within reason of course) e.g. the opportunity to take a year out - the school works closely with the Careers department and with Universities around the world and they are actively promoting to students the opportunity to take a gap year whether it be to work or to study.
The word I would use to describe my time at Aber is AMAZING! I loved every aspect of it from the social life to the academic (even walking up Penglais Hill). Aber may be a small town but there is never a dull moment. I strongly believe I have met some of the most amazing people during my time here, some of whom will remain my closest and best friends no matter which part of the world we end up.
