Universities are a great academic experience, and it includes much more than that expensive piece of paper once you graduate. Your institution will be full of staff that are trained, studied and current in that field of work and it should be a great honour and experience to work with them. There is so much more that universities offer students during their degree, and here are a few of them.
Some universities have wonderful research facilities, like Imperial or Anglia Ruskin. The possibilities are endless, and you can really get stuck into your work and what you feel passionate about. If you are interested in a Bachelor of Science degree, or a degree which focuses on research, then you should look at universities that have the top facilities to aid you in your studies.
Your lecturer’s can be great starting points of your career, they can help you and give you names of people to contact when it comes to finding a job. They know you, understand how you work and can sense your dedication to your passion. You can even pick up connections with your classmates and neighbours at Halls. Your classmates show a common interest – as they’re studying the same degree as you – and their network connection can prove to be very handy later!
Universities aren’t situated in the middle of nowhere, they are full of life, history and cultural happenings than can inspire your work and provide a creative working atmosphere. Furthermore, even your university campus can be full of culture and spark!
In addition, your extra activities really sparkle on your CV. Employers love to hear how you spent your free time at the University Newspaper, or organising events for the local charity. What people choose to do in their spare time, really reflects them as a person and the great parts of their personality.
