Tanvi joins us from India and is studying MSc Entrepreneurship, Finance and Innovation
Why did you choose to study at Loughborough University London?
I joined Loughborough University for its ranking in the UK and the specially dedicated postgraduate campus in London.
What attracted you to the programme?
Despite the course being new, studying Entrepreneurship here was highly recommended by a few friends and alumni. I also spoke with Louise Scholes on the phone before and was convinced of the university standards.
Describe Enterprise Through the Curriculum in your own words.
EtC is an enriching experience, especially for Entrepreneurship and Sports students. There is a lot of peer-to-peer learning and insights into the UK start-up world. It is definitely a must for non-UK students to gain knowledge about the work culture here, and it helps prepare students for employment.
List 3 ways that Enterprise Through the Curriculum is helping you to reach your future career goals.
Arranging events like Hackathons, 100for100 etc. that get students industry ready for the competitive world
Face-to-face mentoring sessions that are dedicated to the students’ needs. This helps in finding the right internship, CV preparation, skills check.
Organising relevant guest lectures and workshops for students to learn from real-life industry failures and successes.
Do you have any advice for students moving to London?
Get a lot of winter clothes and be ready to walk some more. Enjoy the cultural diversity and cuisines.
Do you take part in any extra-curricular activities on campus or in the local area?
I am a Programme Rep and Student Ambassador. I also volunteer sometimes for Media activities. It has helped me build my CV and make friends.
Where are the best places to explore on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park?
Hackney pubs and Stratford Westfield mall.
Do you have any advice to prepare students for the transition from undergraduate to postgraduate study?
Learn to take charge of your life and be very sure of why you want to do a certain course. Chart out your next three-year plan at least. Also, if possible, do a master’s degree after gaining some industry work experience.
What support is available at Loughborough University London?
