My RAU experience

I always had a fascination with studying in-depth agribusiness management and the research on business management is very strong in RAU which attracted me the most.  Moreover, RAU has great collaboration with different agro-based industries and has a network with business people in the UK.

I came to the UK with my daughter and husband and couldn't find any accommodation. The RAU staff have helped me source a place to live for me and my family and have have provided great support to me.

During my study, I completed two modules on Research, and I found these lectures were very helpful in selecting my research philosophy and methodology and I got a clear idea about conducting research. Additionally, I must say that my supervisors always encourage me in participating different extracurricular activities related to my research area which will help me in my future career. Additionally, the staff members of RAU are very friendly and helpful.

What I gained from the RAU 

RAU is the best place to study agribusiness. I will say to the prospective students that PhD in Business and Entrepreneurship would be a good option for them as during the degree they will learn a lot about research. It will also help them interact with business people and work with excellent academics in RAU. In the future, I would like to involve myself in the academic side and I believe the research knowledge and skills that I will achieve after completion of my degree will help to be a good academic and help me explore the areas of social and business research.
