This is an official welcome to the new Masters students at RGU. Congratulations to those who have gained a place to study a Masters degree at the University! Whether already an RGU student or newly joining RGU, Radar magazine is delighted to welcome all.
The students at RGU are vital in contributing to the renowned excellence that the University has established. Studying a Masters at RGU will help to develop and grow intellectual capabilities for the future.
New students should walk around campus and get familiar with the community. For example, visit the cafes, the library, and RGU Sport. Be part of a diverse and energetic environment!
Feel free to get involved in all the events on offer in the first week back at University. Don't forget to join in with Fresher’s week as this is another chance to embrace the University experience. Sign up for societies and make the most of the final year as a University student. Take the opportunity to meet new people and get a break from studying by socialising, relaxing and having fun! Deciding to take on further education is a great way to stand out from other graduates when applying for jobs.
Radar spoke to Michelle, who is studying a Masters degree at RGU next year.
Radar: “What are the benefits of studying a Masters degree at RGU?”
Michelle: “Where my Fashion Management honours degree gave me a varied range of skills, the Purchasing and Supply Chain Management MSc will allow me to specialise in a profession rather than a business sector.”
R: “Do you have any advice for new students at RGU?”
M: “The best advice I could offer is to dedicate and organise your time from the start.”
R: “What makes you motivated to study?”
M: “I’m a very competitive person and always want to do better and be better. I find academic studies to be the most challenging and rewarding opportunity I have encountered yet, and enjoy continuously imporving.”
R: “Any thoughts or tips for working hard and being successful in the year ahead?”
M: “I did my best for my previous degree but definitely think there is room for improvement. This time I want to give it my all!”
Enjoy the year ahead and work hard. We, at Radar are confident that students will have exciting experiences ahead!
