Bournemouth University featured in The i newspaper, with student Francesca Savy talking about her experience on the MSc Business Management course.

Francesca, from the Seychelles, said she enjoys the diversity of her course.

“My options in future are wide open. I could go into marketing”, she explained. “I could go into finance – this course could take me in a number of different directions in any country”.

Francesca told The i that there is only one UK student on her course, adding:

“I was keen to take an international business programme, because I wanted to look into different areas of business”

She continued by telling the newspaper that her postgraduate study at Bournemouth University is based on the high reputation the university has and how there are many accessible opportunities for international students in Bournemouth.

“The Student Union, as well as the teaching faculty, is there to support you and look after you. They take time to know your name. Little things like that really help you feel comfortable.”

Francesca is currently working on her dissertation and is due to graduate in November of this year and cannot wait to enter the world of business.

Dean is a student at Budmouth College in Weymouth, who is working at Bournemouth University in the Press and PR Department. He joined BU on a Sir Samuel Mico Scholarship, which provides 10 students from his college with essential work experience for four weeks over the summer.
