    Hi, I'm a 2017 applicant for international business. I have an unconditional offer for Bristol and conditional offer for Cardiff. When I read the course overviews (like introduction to business, management, microeconomics, information systems, international relations, finance, etc) it seems like it's really interesting and inspiring. But I never actually spoke to people who study it academically. A couple basic questions that should interest all of us:

    1. What is your exact undergraduate field of study and why did you choose it?
    2. Do you like what you study? If not, do you think it is because the teacher doesn't want to make it interesting? Is it too much work?
    3. Also, what is your favorite course and why?
    4. What do you want to do afterwards? some post graduate stuff or get a job?

    Thanks
    (PS I made this thread on another forum but I'm pretty sure it was a mistake, it suits better here)

    I did it as an MSc and really enjoyed it - it had a professional certification (CIPD) which is what I needed to progress with my HR career at the time.

    I think if you're doing business for an undergrad the most important thing is to ensure you do a year in industry or a couple of internships to ensure you have practical skills at the end of your three years.
