1. It’s inspirational
Emre Aksahin, who studied for a BSc in Banking and Finance and now works at Aberdeen Asset Management, commented: “Studying in close proximity to the City enhanced my desire to succeed in finance and the economic buzz surrounding London is a contributing factor when it came to applying for jobs. London is where I wanted to be.”
Antanas Gomolickis, who is studying Business Management, said: “Studying in the heart of London's business district is another massive plus, as you can actually picture yourself working there three years later.”2. You’re right in the middle of the action
Antanas added that his favourite thing about studying in the capital is: “The vibe of the big city with plenty of things to do. You can never get bored by the sight of Tower Bridge on your way into uni.”
As any student will know, going to university is about much more than just studying. In London, you also have access to all the culture and events that the city has to offer, while having many of the largest companies on your doorstep means that many students get work experience in the areas where they want to graduate.
3. It gives those with entrepreneurial ambitions the opportunity to achieve them
Francis Temitope Labiran Jr has combined being on track for a First in Business Management with Marketing with founding a media publishing start-up called Wordjar.
Francis says: “During my time at college, my interest in marketing and public relations has grown. In my current position as Director of Strategy at Wordjar, I am also responsible for overseeing all marketing and PR activities. From day to day I am responsible for the management of our social media campaigns, which helps to increase the visibility of our books and website content; I also contribute to and curate the latter. In addition I have been the project manager on the 11 books we have released.”
Another student, Guenes da Silva Carica, founded a purchasing service company called GSC Distribution while studying. He told us: “Kaplan Holborn College has helped me to expand my vision for my company; I now want to expand globally. I have learned how to manage and finance my company, the importance of commercial awareness, and generally how to be more responsible in life.”4. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune
