MA Advertising and Design

After my Fine Art degree, I knew I wanted to work in advertising, but I didn’t have the educational background or skills to stand out when applying for these highly competitive roles. 

When I saw the MA Advertising and Design I knew it was the one, but I couldn’t afford the course fees and accommodation. A Leeds Masters Scholarship made this possible and I was able to continue my university studies. I took part in several marketing competitions, and won an internship at a top advertising agency, which was such an insightful experience.

My Masters allowed me to learn so much more about the sector and gave me such an advantage in interviews and job applications. I think it’s allowed me to progress faster too.

I’m now an Account Manager at a design and advertising agency. I am loving being able to work and build a career in a creative environment.
