Liew Mei Kee
Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Marketing
The three years that I spent pursuing the ARU Marketing Degree programme at Imperium International College has proven to be a wise decision as my preferred career pathway. As I am originally from Ipoh, my main concern was finding a college that I could fit in, and Imperium International College happened to be the right fit for me in terms of my relationship with my lecturers and fellow classmates as well as the student lifestyle. Imperium also gave me the opportunity to widen my social circle by meeting new international friends from Korea, Vietnam and Bangladesh, to name a few. This also helped me to achieve my goal to improve my command of the English language as I was naturally encouraged to speak more English. For this, I have to thank my fellow lecturers who were always there to help. In short, my experience in Imperium International College has been somewhat an inspiration for me, as it has equipped me to effectively handle difficulties and setbacks in my professional career.
