“After studying the first two years of my bachelor at ESEI in Barcelona, I went to Anglia Ruskin University to finish my bachelor degree in their top up program, which was in Cambridge (UK) and lasted a year. The University was much larger than ESEI but there was a good combination between lectures and seminars. In the lectures there were large groups and in seminars it was focused on small working groups. I really liked the "UPCD modules" the school offers, which are are extra non-core courses you can follow. I took one in Leadership and Negotiation and learnt a lot. Aside from the academic programme, it was easy to find a room because ARU has many different campus accommodation options. Furthermore, there are over ten different kinds of sports teams you can join and during the first two weeks of university you can try out what you like. I joined the rowing team which was a lot of fun and a great way to meet people. I would definitely recommend the ARU Business Administration top up year over in the UK because the level of education is very good and there are so many additional opportunities.”
