More about Damien
"I had the choice of several universities, but Nottingham was the perfect place for me as the city is not too far from London and offers a good quality of life. Nottingham Trent University is rising higher each year in the academic ranking, it demonstrates the dynamism of the University.
"I didn't know much about NTU until I met the NTU Erasmus Team in my previous university where they told me how good life is in Nottingham and how NTU can help me to reach my goal. The features that attracted me the most were the course modules. This is because I wanted to study modules that I really care about.
"The Applied Consultancy Project (ACP) definitely stood out on my course as it wasn't offered anywhere else. Most universities propose to write a dissertation. The ACP is much more practical than a dissertation. Instead of thinking alone on a topic, you think with different people on a topic and then you apply your knowledge to a real company challenge which is a great experience.
"The geographical position of Nottingham played an important role. A lot of jobs are in London and the possibility to reach in London within two hours by train is an undeniable advantage to me.
"I participated in the Mentoring Programme. The Employability Team paired me with an alumnus of NTU who is occupying a senior position in an international company. I am currently benefiting from this experience. I find NOW a pertinent tool you can use to consult your tutors online and you have access to the slides lecturers use in lectures and seminars."
