What was it about Northumbria that made you decide to study here?Allie Lim

A flexible approach towards research assignments rather than conventional exam based studies.

What was it like studying at Northumbria?

The majority of the lecturers are specialist in their teaching area & professional. Team projects are rather challenging as classmates from different background & learning attitude varies, however it was a good learning curve.

How connected was your course with industry?

The course I studied was rather well-connected with industry, although it is too wide to cover every aspect. It covers much from business strategies to the specialised supply chain logistics function in a global context. Unfortunately, as I was doing part-time study, there were no placements or industrial projects except for the dissertation module which enabled me to engage my then workplace colleagues to help answer survey questions as part of my research.

What was the best thing about your course?

The course only had one exam!

How did studying at Northumbria help you achieve your career goals/ give your career an edge?

I feel well-equipped with the knowledge related to my career and setting my career pipeline for progression towards where I wish to be whilst helping others to recognise their own strengths.

Which skills/knowledge did you learn on your course that you use most now throughout your career?

I mainly use skills gained from the Global Supply Chain Management and Business Performance Management modules.

What did you enjoy most about your time at Northumbria University?

The lecturers are very knowledgeable whilst being witty and humorous at the same time. I also enjoyed spending time with classmates in the same project team.

What advice would you give somebody who is considering studying at Northumbria?

It is a good opportunity to experience an almost zero-exam based course while learning new knowledge at the same time.

How would you describe your time at Northumbria in three words?

Well-spent oments!
