            A LEOPARD CAN CHANGE IT'S SPOTS...

            Although conscious that education and knowledge should enlighten and change, the opening gambit on many a course, the time spent at City continues to astonish me and those closest, personally and professionally. The professionalism and support seems distant but scratch beneath the surface and there is a bountiful supply of career academics, magnates of media, technical wizardry and bright sparks in business. The university has opened my eyes and changed me, taking me to a level I only witnessed previously.

            At City one is able to enjoy first class education combined with a truly global atmosphere. Northampton Square is where I made lasting connections with people from all over the world. Living at one of the Capitols of the world also has its benefits; you really can´t have a dull moment in London!

            Great professors and careers department

            I had a fantastic time at City, particularly when writing my thesis. I had great professors and a supervisor who guided me very well. It’s also important to note the excellent work done by the people at careers centre, they bring on great companies and prepare you very well. The location is also great, especially for those hoping to get internships in the city, like I did.
