Angus Robb

Where are you from?
I am from Aberdeenshire, near a small village called Alford, although I’ve been living in Aberdeen for the past 7 years.

What was your undergraduate degree?
I completed an undergraduate in History in 2016 from Aberdeen. I then went on to do a postgraduate in medieval Scandinavian literature and language.

Why did you decide to study an MSc in Digital Marketing?
I became more and more involved in the marketing aspect of my previous roles and really started getting into it. I eventually would like to work with local, independent SME’s and brands around Scotland to help them compete with larger franchises.

What do you like best about the course so far?
The opportunities to blend creativity and analysis.

What’s your favorite app or website, and why?
My favorite website is Reddit, which I constantly check. I mainly follow food and news reddits, and occasionally the odd fan reddit for the most recent book I am reading. My favorite app is probably Audible as it has all the Terry Pratchett books on it.

Tell us a random fact about yourself!
Along with two other friends, we are developing a free online browser-based MMO called Tears of Gilgead. I am mainly involved in creative writing and world design. It’s not out yet but you can find us on Twitter!
