"I'm currently a marketing executive at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation in London. Day-to-day, I'll be running creative campaigns, writing blogs, briefing designers for collateral and working with internal stakeholders across the business to launch their products, as well as running various social media profiles.

More than anything, Arts teaches you to think.

"It teaches you to ask questions you may not have thought about and gets you to delve deeper. I think it teaches you to look at things from a real 360-degree perspective, which has helped me hugely in my career.

"You also have to be organised when you're studying — you have multiple deadlines and projects going on simultaneously — and it's exactly the same in the working world."
