Former University College London student Julia Knyazhanskaya (BA hons Economics and Business with East European Studies 2013) has launched BookSpot, an online book exchange for London students. It allows students from UCL, Kings College London and LSE to buy the second hand textbooks they need and to sell those they no longer require.
Once the idea was in place, Julia found that UCL was able to provide assistance and advice in helping BookSpot become a reality. Julia explains, “When I started working on the project, UCL was very supportive. I was able to organise a free meeting with a Student Business Advisor in UCL Advances, which was very useful. It provided me with feedback about all aspects of the project, including the legal, marketing and financial side of things.”
My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
