Saoirse, why did you choose Land Economy?
"It was mainly the breadth of the course that attracted me - I'd enjoyed my A-levels, but not enough to continue them for three years, and I didn't want to study just one subject for that length of time. Also, I wanted to learn something new, and given that I'd never studied law or economics before, land economy fit pretty well."
What’s your advice to students applying to Land Economy?
"Practise answering interview questions, even if in front of a mirror. While existing knowledge is important, being able to put your ideas across well matters more."
