Case Study

Name: Emily Wraight

Programme: BA (Hons) Events Management


Emily Wraight is in her third year of a BA (Hons) Events Management course at the University of West London. She says that she chose to go to university to equip her with the higher knowledge needed for her future career. She also wanted to experience the social side of university life, as well as the experience of living away from home.

'I chose the University because of its location, transport links, and the opportunity to study events management', she explains.

Emily has lived in halls of residence during all of her time at university. 'The Paragon halls have a good atmosphere and it's a great way to make friends. There are always events to attend or opportunities to just hang out in your flat or common room with friends', she says.

She has volunteered at a variety of events and festivals throughout her course, including stints at the Glastonbury Festival and working for the Oxfam team at Oxjam music events.

What does she like best about the University?

'I love the mix of people that you can meet at this university. It's a fun and exciting place to study, with great work experience possibilities which will help to shape your future', Emily says.
