This is our final post from the #WestminsterIsUs blog series where we celebrate the diversity at this university and join in the excitement of our newly arrived students. Make sure to read about Day 1 and Day 2 of this exciting #ArrivalsWeek adventure. And a warm welcome to a university that, besides every other excellent thing, has a fund to help you explore the world; and whose patron is the Queen herself!

Today our #Lucky3 students we spoke with were Pol, Krista and Hriday, who have just joined Westminster Business School and are already full of excitement and ambition to make the best of their degree!


What is your name, where are you from and what are you going to study here at Westminster?

Pol: Hi, my name is Pol Tora, I am from Spain and I am studying MA Music Business Management.

Krista: Hello, I am Krista from Finland and I doing a MSc in International Development Management

Hriday: Hi there, my name is Hriday from India. I am going to study BA Business Management with Marketing.

Welcome to all three of you and so great to see you represent a great variety of courses!


Why did you choose Westminster?

Pol: I chose Westminster because I love the location and it is the only place offering my course in London.

Krista: Westminster was my choice because of the location, flexibility and also how international it is. As well as the practical aspects career-wise that it offers.

Hriday: I chose this university because of its central location and because I heard the marketing programme here is really good.

Fantastic! Pol, we really do offer quite interesting and tailored courses and, what’s more, we have what’s called Westminster Plus Electives, which give you the flexibility to study something that you like outside of your course! Krista, you are very right; we have students coming from more than 160 countries and won being the most diverse university in the UK in 2016. And Hriday, as a Westminster Business Management with Marketing alumni, I can reassure you that the marketing course is indeed excellent!


What is your dream job?

Pol: I would love to go into Marketing.

Krista: I want to be a country manager for an international NGO

Hriday: And I would like to either be a CEO (basically run my own business) or Head of Marketing.

Wow, I love your choices, guys! Good luck to all of you and please remember that the Careers and Employability Services team is always here to support you every step of the way to getting that dream job of yours!
