BA (Hons) Business Management


For Iryna Kril, the University’s reputation for helping older students was key to deciding to study with us for her BA (Hons) in Business Management. We’re helping her balance work, life and study to achieve her goals.

I currently work in a coffee shop but I hope to move into management and my degree at the University is a big step on the road to a new career.

"I currently work in a coffee shop to pay the bills, but I hope to move into management and my degree at the University of Sunderland in London is a big step on the road to a new career. Qualifications are crucial if you want to change direction and move into something that you’re passionate about.

I was anxious when I applied because I was worried I wouldn't be accepted. But I prepared really hard for my interview and was delighted to win a place here. I actually didn’t look at any other universities because my friends recommended the University of Sunderland in London and the location was perfect for me.

I also know the University has an excellent reputation for helping older students fit their studies around work which was really important. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to balance my work, family and study time but actually I’ve managed to stay on top of things because I feel confident and supported studying here."
