The initiatives that Southampton undertakes to help students find internships and placements in my opinion give proof of a genuine interest displayed by the University in the professional lives of its students.

I’ve accepted a graduate position at Zurich so I’m going to be moving to Birmingham which will be a first because I’ve always lived at home so it’s going to be great. I’m being a commercial broker so I’ll be insuring large businesses.

My participation in the Student Consultancy Programme prepared me for an internship in my second year with the international corporation based in London. The exposure and confidence were invaluable in landing offers for graduate programmes.

Personally, writing a dissertation was one of the hardest hurdles I had to face at University. However, completing it and receiving fantastic feedback has boosted my confidence in not only my writing skills but also my ability to learn a new topic, think on my own and complete empirical research from scratch.

While I was here I was really involved in Enactus society, so I joined two of their projects and actually ended up running one of their enterprises in Kenya
