What's it like to study a business degree?

Ever wondered what it’s like to study a business degree? Well, I'm in my third year of studying Business and Human Resource Management and I wanted to write about the various elements I’ve enjoyed during my time at ARU.

1. A great combination

The Business with HR Management degree is a course which combines theory and practice. I love learning theories in lectures and having interactive seminars where we analyse case studies and put the theory into practice.

2. Expert tutors

The professionalism and expertise of the tutors is an asset. They are always willing to help and clarify any point. Moreover, since I love being mentally challenged, they proactively give me extra reading or real-life examples to analyse.

3. Placements

A significant thing is that students enrolled in this course may decide to take a placement for their entire third year and then come back for the final year. It enables us to gain work experience in their chosen field while we are still studying.

4. Small classes

The Business with HR Management degree at ARU is a relatively small cohort. I love the fact that we know each other in class and we help and support our colleagues.

5. Friendly and supportive

Last but not least in terms of importance is that all the lecturers I have had so far were very friendly and approachable. I always feel at ease to ask for an appointment or to talk to them after class. It makes such a huge difference to me.
