Katrina ChanMedia, Communication and Sociology
Katrina is a 1st year Media, Communications and Sociology student. Before coming to City she was studying at Woldingham School, a UK boarding school.
Why did you apply to study at City, University of London?
It’s welcoming atmosphere and staff. There was also not any London universities that offered this combined course.
What kind of things are you involved in outside of your course?
I am a Student Ambassador for the Marketing team, working at events like Open Days where I am able to talk to visitors about my experiences. I am also a Widening Participation ambassador. I am the secretary of the Chinese Society. Outside of the University I sing with the City of London choir.
Does your course offer opportunities for study abroad or placement?
Next year I will start applying for sandwich year opportunities. I'm hoping to study abroad. Since I'm in my first year I'll be looking to find out more information and apply next year.
What do you plan to do after you graduate?
I'm interested in working in advertising so will either look out for internship programmes, or will consider studying for a master's degree.
What would be your top tip for our applicants?
Be yourself, be authentic and true to yourself and ask whether you’d like to be in a diverse environment.
