Student quote

What is your background (work experience, qualifications)?

I am a bilingual Romanian student who, unfortunately, never had the chance to attend university due to political reasons. I moved to the UK in 2004 with my family and started to work in health and social care, which I’m very proud of.

While working, I realised that I wanted to get back to the top of my career and that it required higher study.

What made you decide to study at RCL?

I Joined RCL for studying purposes and dreamed of gaining a university degree. Also, because I realized whilst working that something was missing, I wanted a degree to level up my career. My main aim was to support my experience with a qualification.

I chose RCL because it offers excellent flexibility; although I had to step back from a managerial position, it gave me balance in my day-to-day life and allowed me to put my studies first. I currently work at an airport whilst studying for a Business Management degree. I believe my qualification with RCL will fit into my line of work. The flexibility at RCL is excellent as I work part-time, often night shifts, but I can study on Mondays and Tuesdays.

What has been your experience as an RCL student?

I appreciated the digital teaching; as we were in lockdown, we could still carry on with our studies virtually, and it did have massive benefits, but I did miss human interaction. I believe face-to-face interaction is much needed, and I prefer being in class.

Have there been aspects that you have found particularly helpful?

When I find the time to join co-curricular activities, I find them helpful. Also, when I was taking part in Thinking into Character (TiC), I found it mind-blowing.

What do you enjoy most about your course?

I enjoy every module as they offer a good depth of knowledge and skills. I approach every subject with the same priority, and I realise that the information I learned in the first years of study will be needed later. The lecturers and professors engage students well, they are allowed to express their opinions, and RCL offers quality teaching.

What do you plan to do next?

After finishing my studies with RCL, I plan to follow more education and complete an MBA in business management.

What would your advice be to other students taking similar career paths?

I advise any student joining RCL to trust the system to follow up on every opportunity RCL offers. The institution has a vision and a clear path supporting the academic studies and additional programs, mentioning Thinking into Character (TiC) and the wide variety of SCOPE programs. Never give up, as the path is not easy, but at the end of the day, clear your objectives and just follow them, as it will be worth every effort. Take every day, every week, and every semester as the first; dedicate yourself as you did on day one. Consistency, hard work, and commitment will lead to success. Remember, if you fail, that is just a way to make you stronger it is not the end of the road.
