Magda Wachowicz's story
Our BA (Hons) Graphic Design graduate, Magda, recently sat and shared with us the highlights of her experience as a BNU student and how it has helped her get to her desired career.
Magda originally decided BNU was where she wanted to study because of the size, facilities and location. “After looking at various universities, I decided that BNU was the best start for me. It’s not too big and had all the facilities and necessary equipment I was looking for. The location was a big plus too! Being only 30 mins away from London makes it a great town for students who wants to explore the capital during weekends.”
BNU for me was filled with sports societies, amazing nights out, personal course projects and late nights with friends in studio or library. All this added to a great university experience and long-lasting friendships.
During her time as a BNU student Magda fully embraced the Big Deal and the societies it has to offer. She also mentions it was a great way to help her meet and make friends outside of her course. “I will definitely remember the sports societies, especially the one that I played a part in - volleyball. It was great, everyone was so friendly and I met loads of new people outside of my course, whilst having fun and learning a load of new skills.”
Magda can now be found working as a Junior Graphic Designer for Interactive Schools. She shared that her time at BNU helped her grow as a person and gain the skills to enter the working-world. “When I started at BNU, I was incredibly shy and quiet. During my time at university, I was able to develop my social skills and become more confident. The close relationships of Students, tutors and staff really helped with this, as well as the homely and friendly atmosphere around the campus. My tutors also taught me to approach problems differently, they encouraged me to ask questions and ultimately made me curious about the world again.”
Although sometimes challenging Magda says that her experience at BNU was one-of-a-kind. “BNU for me was filled with sports societies, amazing nights out, personal course projects and late nights with friends in studio or library. All this added to a great university experience and long-lasting friendships.”
