More about Amadea
"I am originally from Indonesia and I have travelled to the UK to study BA Fashion Marketing and Branding here at Nottingham Trent University (NTU). I decided on the UK for various reasons; I had studied a British qualification back home and liked the idea of being able to complete my studies in three years instead of four. Also, my institution already had links with NTU so it seemed like an ideal opportunity for me.
"It was a daunting decision and I did not know what to expect when I arrived in the UK, but now after two years of living here I can definitely say it was the right decision for me. I have learned so much from both the academic and social side of university life including how to live independently, how to integrate into new communities and how easy it is to build up an international network of friends and peers.
"The course here has been fantastic, my background is in marketing but my interests lay in fashion so to have the combination of the two in one course is incredible. Also, I like the system of study here; seminars with discussions amongst our tutors and peers then individual tutorial sessions which is more one-on-one which is a great help.
"I definitely think the course will help me in my future career, I am getting to learn transferable skills as well as the theory and practical skills that I will need in a career of Fashion Marketing. This all mixed with the network of people and the support that you get from the University means that I am well on my way to finding a successful career. Even if I wanted to start my own business I know that I would get the support and advice from NTU that I needed."
