Raghav Venkatesh was looking for a career change. In India he had completed his undergraduate degree in law and was working as a corporate lawyer there too.
He had always dreamed of becoming a teacher and UWS came to his attention due to our high ratings for our Education programmes in some national rankings. Our BA (Hons) Education programme, for example, continues to be rated amongst the best in the country and in 2020 was top in the UK in the Times Good University Guide and Guardian University Guide.
After an interview with staff at UWS, Raghav was offered a place on the MEd Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) programme. “I had no teaching experience but it was always my ultimate goal,” says Raghav. “The University told me that I would be well suited to this programme. I couldn’t be happier with the decision and will forever be grateful for the opportunity.”
