I was pursuing my undergraduate degree in Commerce (Financial Market) from Narsee Monjee College of Commerce and Economics, Mumbai.

Why did you choose Loughborough University London?

When looking for a University, I felt that student satisfaction was really important which I found Loughborough being 1stplace in the 2018 Times Higher Education (THE) Student Experience Survey. I was also totally inclined when I saw the Collaborative project programme which was a great platform to compile the theoretical knowledge into a practical experience.

What’s your favourite thing about Loughborough University London?

I love the entrepreneurial whirlpool in Loughborough University London. When I joint the University I knew I had a deep passion about the subject but looking at the fellow classmates zest and the environment around I was motivated to think out of the box, now I’m almost a graduate with a business idea.

What helped you choose Loughborough University London?

I did a lot of research online. As well as this, I was  moved when a Student Ambassador from the University had called me to give me information about the University and helped answer any queries.

How have you funded your studies?

I took out a loan to fund my studies.

What do you enjoy the most about your course?

I love the Family Business module. 

Describe what it is like to be a postgraduate student and how this differs from being an undergraduate.

Doing a postgraduate degree requires a lot of determination, hard-work and passion.

Describe a day in the life of a postgraduate student on your course

An average day would include attending my classes (lecturers, seminars or tutorials), as well as doing a little bit of coursework or group work after. The day would end at Canalside with a bite to eat or a drink.

Where do you see your career in 5 years’ time?

I hope to see myself continuing being really passionate towards women in entrepreneurship. I see myself as an established business woman in India.

How do you like to spend your time away from your studies?

I like to spend time with my friends and read. I also love to explore London!


If you could give one piece of advice to a postgraduate student, what would it be?

Follow your heart and your passion. Always trust your own gut. Things will work out because they always have.
