Student Profile - Olivia Steidl 188BA (Hons) Events ManagementFrom Vác, Hungary

Why did you choose RGU?

I chose RGU because they have a high employability rate in Scotland and the course I wanted to do had the best structure here.

Why did you choose the course you are studying?

My biggest passion was always dancing, and I spent so much time organizing dancing events such as flashmobs, walk in classes and workshops. And I really enjoyed the organizing process as well so I thought it would be a most efficient module for me.

What are your favourite things about being a student in Aberdeen?

Aberdeen and the university offers a lot of opportunities to try myself out in events management related work experiences, and the classes are build-up in the way that they are getting us ready for the life after university.

Have you been involved in any clubs or societies while at RGU? If so tell us a little bit about it

I was involved in the Dance Society in my second and third year. It was an amazing opportunity to get involve with people who are also have a passion for dancing. We went to Dundee for a dance competition which was an amazing experience and I talk more about the dance society and the competitions in my blog post.

Do you have any advice for people who are considering study at RGU?

RGU is a very welcoming university, the tutors here always try to help. I think it was an amazing decision for me to choose the University and my course. I did not regret it and if I could do it again with the knowledge I have, I would still choose RGU. My advice would be for the student who choose RGU that to stay in University halls in the first year at least, because that where I made all my friends.

What do you want to do when you complete your course?

I will want to do postgraduate degree, I am applying for international marketing. If I cannot get into a Canadian University, I will continue my studies at RGU.
