Find out why international student Yang Hong chose to study her postgraduate degree at Loughborough.

This is a transcription of Yang Hong's video.

What is your name, degree and country of origin?

I'm Yang Hong, I come from mainland China I study a Masters degree here in Finance and Management.

Why did you choose your course at Loughborough University?

I actually used to study broadcasting and anchoring in mainland China, but I was really into finance, and I happened to find this programme in Loughborough which is for those who did not study financey in their undergraduate degrees. Also Loughborough is a high ranking university in UK and has won awards for the best student experience, so that's what attracted me to study here.

What has been the highlight of the programme so far? Have you had a favourite module?

My favourite module has been enterprise resource planning. It is quite a practical module and has a class in the computer lab where you study about the ASP system. What I like is that you are not only learning knowledge, but it's quite useful in your future career and you can really put this into practice in your future jobs, and it's not only about the knowledge but also about practice.

What would you say to someone considering studying your course at Loughborough?

To those who are willing to study here I really recommend you the Finance and Management programme. It is a really good programme for those who are non-finance students, and you also improve in both academic knowledge, and also the sports facilities and the gym will make your life better.
