Learning all business fundamentals while becoming bilingual

Overall
My 4-year degree in International Business at Loughborough University can be summarised within three aspects with the first one being education. Thanks to teachers from all over the world,  high-quality content and outstanding facilities, I have never felt unhappy nor lazy to go to my lectures. I was lucky also to be accepted onto a course that was extremely open in terms of future perspectives. In fact, throughout my three years on campus, I had the chance to touch on management science, develop a financial background, learn about marketing practices, discover human resources and even get the chance to improve my Spanish from A2 to C1.
The second dimension is the student experience, notably ranked best in the U.K. for numerous years consequently. From student halls to nightlife/bars, restaurants and all the events organised by the 100+ student societies, I never felt bored by what the university and the city was offering me to do during my free time. I built a network of great friends from many countries worldwide and had some of the best times ever with them.
Lastly, there could not be a review on my experience at Loughborough University without mentioning the sport dimension. As I was lucky to be accepted at the field hockey trials in first year, I had the chance to get involved in a group of a hundred (most of them were English) students, all being high-level players. I would have training twice a week along two games per week too, while also playing tennis once every two weeks.

All in all, having had my first choice (Exeter) refuse me in 2016 for my English level that was not good after my French Baccalaureate, I cannot be more thankful for having been given a chance by my insurance choice, Loughborough University, to improve my English along my course and actually manage to get the 2:1 award (second highest honours) in overall average.
