Elliot Leech

Where are you from?
I am from Aberdeen and have lived here my whole life.

What was your undergraduate degree?
I haven’t done an undergraduate degree but spent 6 years as a Ships Agent working with and supporting vessels in ports across the country.

Why did you decide to study an MSc in Digital Marketing?
After realising I wanted to change my career path, I started looking into the opportunities around me. After some research, I decided I would have to retrain and went to a Postgraduate open day to check out a few courses I had shortlisted. After going to te MSc Digital Marketing stand I came away unbelievably excited and enthusiastic, I was without doubt that this was what I wanted to do.

What do you like best about the course so far?
I am thoroughly enjoying working with live clients across the classes and learning through practical application. It is extremely useful to me to be able to go away and put what I learned in the lectures into practice.

What’s your favourite app or website, and why?
My favourite website/app is Imgur, which started as a platform for image hosting. It has since developed into content sharing and then further into a community that comes together to support those in need and encourage each other. It can be a very wholesome and amusing environment.

Tell us a random fact about yourself!
I currently play the guitar but during school, I used to play the Bassoon and won a regional competition for my age group because I was the only one that entered.
