Year 1

Saskia, a Newbold business student from Germany
"Being a Business student at Newbold is a great opportunity because there are many different nationalities represented in the student body, which leads to unique classroom discussions and further expansion of one's world views and understanding.
Another quality aspect of Newbold is the availability of the lecturers to meet with the students outside of the classroom, leading to a more individualised learning experience."
