Case Studies

Vickrutha Ramesh, Australia Australia

2017 Management Alumna

Vickrutha participated in our Management programme in 2017. Here's what she has to say about her time with Immerse Education:

I'm about to start my Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University Of Melbourne, where I will be majoring in Economics. Immerse introduced me to so many different concepts during the programme such as the benefits and drawbacks of various management techniques used by well renowned companies like Google and Starbucks. My group mentor Rosie and my subject mentor Dylan Amin were just brilliant. I wrote my entire personal statement with my mentor and I was selected for the Cambridge interview. I also got offers from UCL and Lancaster but decided to do my Undergraduate's at the University of Melbourne. Attending lectures at Immerse also made me confident as a person, as my lecturers helped me identify the skills I have within me, to a certain extent, within two weeks. I got all this while discovering the talents of individuals from all around the world.
