Elettra's story

Elettra is from Italy and applied for her course BA (Hons) Public Relations through Clearing. Elettra spent six months studying overseas as part of her degree. She has also travelled to New York for her one-year work placement.

Why I chose Leeds Beckett

I wanted to study PR in the UK and Leeds Beckett offered a course with lots of practical experience. The opportunity to have hands-on experience is not something we have in Italy. My friends back home just study, read and do exams, so I feel lucky to be studying here.

Supportive course tutors

Any time I need to ask a question or have any doubts about my work, my course tutors are always there to help me

My Course

One of the best things about my course are the guest lecturers. Finding out about their careers and experience has been inspiring.

We also analysed well-known PR campaigns examining how effective and successful they were. I then got the chance to create new campaigns and be a PR practitioner for the day, which was fascinating.

Living in Leeds

The city of Leeds is full of students and there are so many things to do. There are a lot of green areas – I like walking around Hyde Park which is on the doorstep of where I live. Leeds is a nice place to shop and browse the city centre. There is always something going on like street performances, food stands and lots of exhibitions.

Social events

The activities during International Arrival help students feel welcome. This is very important if you are studying in another country for the first time. The social activities have been great for me! I attend lots of societies and events, and I'm now an International Student Ambassador, which I love!

Being a student ambassador

Being a Student Ambassador is amazing! I’ve met many other international students who have motivated me to travel during my studies. This is why I decided to study abroad for six months and do my placement year in New York.

My future

My dream job is to work in PR in an international context and travel as part of my role. Fashion PR interests me because I’m Italian and love fashion!

There’s a good reputation of Leeds Beckett students doing internships at reputable PR agencies and achieving successful careers. I’m confident I can follow the same path.
