I wanted a degree that would intellectually challenge me, give me great career prospects, and allow me to study abroad. My course offered all of these benefits. I spent my year abroad studying translation in Grenoble. Not only did I improve my fluency and confidence in French, spending a year abroad has greatly benefitted my career prospects and enabled me to meet a wide range of people from different cultures.

The resources on offer at Oxford Brookes include something for everyone, and are constantly being improved. Without the support of Oxford Brookes, I would not have had the skills or the professional experience to be able to apply for such a competitive placement. Brookes has taught me to think outside the box, to be creative and most importantly to have a passion for success.
