I Want to Move Back

Kingston University

According to recent league tables, the UK offers the best education in the English-speaking world. Based on your experience, would you agree with this statistic? 

It seems better than the American educational system at least. You develop more of a rapport with your professors. There is more opportunity for group work and networking. You get out what you put in, you are more involved in the research and learning process.

Since your graduation, how has your UK education and experience impacted your life? 

I’ve noticed interviewers are more impressed. I gained a lot of perspective there. I was able to travel more than I ever thought possible. I am now obsessed with the idea of moving back.

Where do you work and what is your position? 

I'm a Tradeshow Events Coordinator at Emerald Expositions. 


How long did it take you to get your job post-graduation? 

2 months.

Many students tell us their UK degree got them in the door for interviews. Did you find this to be the case? Were employers interested in and impressed with your British education? 

Yes, they were.

What advice would you give someone currently considering their education in the UK? 

Do it! But try to save up beforehand and try not to get so excited about the travel and novelty that you forget you are there for school.
