BA (Hons) Business Management


For Joanna Tsaousai, the size of the University helped her decide to study for her BA in Business Management. She received the one-to-one support she needed to pursue her career in the photography industry.

What I love most about the University is that the classes are small, so I feel more supported. Because of that, I’m much more confident.

"I had a tour of the University before I applied and the staff really made me feel at home. That was important because I remember being pretty stressed at the time. I’d looked at a lot of universities and been for quite a few interviews but applying directly to the University of Sunderland in London was quick and really simple.

I’d done a foundation course outside London but it just wasn’t very convenient. Some friends recommended the University of Sunderland in London and I’m so glad they did. What I love most is that the classes are small so I feel a lot more supported and because of that, I’m more confident.

The one-to-one support from staff is excellent. It’s really important that I feel more involved at university so I became a Student Ambassador here. It’s a great way of meeting people and giving something back.

I’m passionate about photography and I genuinely feel that the University’s enthusiasm matches my own. They’re already giving me a strong foundation to build on as I work towards a career in the industry I love."
