Small-town girl with big ambitions “proud” of her achievements so far

Although she grew up in a small town, Eva Armour has always harboured big ambitions.

She wanted to go to university, gain her independence and meet new people.

And Miss Armour, 21, from Campbeltown, certainly achieved that yesterday when she graduated with a degree in Management and Marketing from Robert Gordon University.

She now plans to pursue a “dream” career in fashion and added: “When I was 17 and not entirely sure what I wanted to study, marketing appealed to me due to the creative aspects of the discipline and the vast range of options available from a marketing degree.”

Miss Armour will resume her studies at RGU in September, after being awarded a fully-funded place on the MSc Fashion Management course.

She said: “I have held a strong interest in fashion from a young age and my dream has always been to work in the fashion industry.

“But when I was leaving school, I was afraid studying Fashion Management would restrict me if for some reason I decided this was not the route I wanted to follow.

“However, having focused my final year thesis on the luxury fashion industry and having held a part-time job in this [area] during my time at university, I am confident this is the path I want to follow.”

Acknowledging the hard work she had put into her education, Miss Armour stated she felt “proud” of her accomplishments.

She added: “One of the key highlights was my experience with Erasmus in second year when I got the chance to study at the Brest Business School [in France].

“This experience grew my cultural awareness, opened my mind to new opportunities and made me more adaptable to new environments and I believe shaped me into becoming a more confident and open-minded individual.”

“My greatest memory from my time at university will be the friends I made along the way, particularly in the final year when everyone grew a lot closer and supported each other.”

She’s particularly pleased to be continuing her studies at RGU, adding: “From my first day, it was clear it was a community all the staff and students are incredibly proud to be part of.

“It was also evident that it was a university in a proactive stage of growth and improvement. This is backed up by the recent Gold Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) rating awarded to the university and I am very proud to be an RGU graduate.”
