Course: BSc (Hons) Business with Events Management

Hi, I’m Nick. I’m studying Events Management at ARU in Cambridge, and I’m in my first year. I came to uni a little last minute through Clearing – so while it was a rush, I can confidently say it was the best decision I ever made. I’ve met amazing people, discovered a new city to call home and realised there was much more to me that met the eye. I am so excited to share my journey with you over my time at ARU and I am already doing things I never imagined I’d have the confidence or ability to do. I feel one step closer to success thanks to this university! Check out my blogs to discover what I’ve been up to in my first year and the years that follow.
