portrait of City student Oreste Giacchè

"City is international while still incorporated into the vibrant and interesting scene of East London"

Why did you choose to study at City, University of London?

When I visited City the year before moving to London, I found it to be International while still incorporated into the vibrant and interesting scene of East London.

What do you enjoy most about your course?

Over the past three years I have been able to truly engage with a number of the seminar and lecturing professors. They each have their own specialty and research interest, which they successfully use to inspire their students.

What has been your favourite module and why?

It's difficult to choose one module, however the first that comes to mind is Dr. Chris Greer's module Crime, News and Criminal Justice. It allowed me to understand and appreciate the construction of media.

What has been a highlight of your course so far?

Studying sociology was not initially what I thought to study at university, however it has enlightened me and opened my mind to a new way of critical and autonomous thought.

What do you plan to do after you graduate?

I'm currently getting a certificate to teach English as a foreign language (TEFL), and hope to move to Santiago, Chile, next year.
