I am half way through semester one of the International Business & Emerging Markets programme. I have learnt that one of the amazing things about studying a postgraduate degree here is the rich international environment and the diverse range of opportunities that students have access to.
Edinburgh is a dream city for many people, and so it attracts people from all over the world, enjoying incredible diversity. Consequently, in Edinburgh, I have been able to meet people from different countries and regions, such as Europe, South Africa and the United States.
