Mark Rushe - Foundation Degree in Marketing

Mark Main

“I am well on course with my grades to get onto the summer bridging course with Ulster University and start my final year in September."

Mark lived in Belfast during term time. He chose this Marketing Foundation Degree course as he was keen to work in the sports marketing industry and was attracted to it as there was practical work placement within the course. He has really enjoyed the course and the campus which is very modern and well equipped, and is very accessible with public transport.

Mark recommends all aspects of the course and explains why it fulfilled his expectations, “The lecturers have given 100% to help me during my course and I have felt very well supported. We had some group projects which were really good fun and helped me to get to know the other students in my class better. I had a dedicated tutor for my personal and professional development which has been really key for job searches and will be very useful for when I finish my degree to progress my career.

“I’m currently on a three-month work placement with Ignite Sports Management, a sports marketing agency in Oxford which is giving me great experience in the career I want to follow. I have been asked to continue working past my end date and into the summer with the firm as they have been impressed with my work so far. Even with it being a challenging year, the lecturers have helped me to prepare for my placement and now I am reaping the rewards.”
