What their Students Say

One of the main reasons why I chose City was for its master’s course content – the modules taught were what I was looking for. For me, I really needed to know what is Data Science and how to deal with it in a systematic way. The Data Science MSc at City seemed to offer me such knowledge and skills.

Another reason to choose City was its location. Being in the heart of London is important to me not just for a more convenient life, but also because it opens up more opportunities. Last but not least, City has strong connections with the industry.

Data Science is a domain closely depending on practical needs. Good relationships and connections with the industry could provide students with more first-hand information about what is needed in the market and which direction we would like to go further.

I chose the Business School because it was listed as one of the best universities in the UK for its Accounting & Finance undergraduate degree. The course allows the maximum number of exemptions from professional bodies, which would have made my path in becoming a Chartered Accountant slightly more at ease. Studying in London as well, was a huge pulling factor as to why I chose this university.

The careers team provides a vast range of services from CV checks, mock interviews and professional mentoring scheme, all of which helped me in supporting my career aspirations. I was involved in the Snapshot Scheme at one point which gave me access to industry experts and provided training to increase my employability skills. This helped me ace my interview with PwC that landed me a summer internship with them in my penultimate year, which eventually was converted into a graduate job offer when I started my final year at the Business School.
