Apart from being highly ranked, LUMS appeared to me during my three years at Lancaster as an interactive, captivating and interesting hub with vast resources and opportunities with an international mix of students.

Apart from covering many local and global real-life topics, the programme had an impeccable balance between theory and practice. The best part of my degree was presenting team projects in front of a panel. Personally, I found my third year to be the most interesting due to a selection of modules of which Public & International Economics was the most captivating.

Having experienced university life, I can reassure anyone that Lancaster can become whatever you want it to be, as it has a lively campus with numerous sports, cultural or social events throughout the year. Being part of the Lancaster University Swimming and Water Polo Club helped me to develop my communication, leadership and teamwork skills.

My time at Lancaster University was truly memorable. This experience opened up new perspectives for me and gave me the opportunity to interact with individuals from diverse backgrounds. It went beyond what I had expected and helped me to open and shape my mind. 

I took advantage of LUMS Careers support service, which helped me create my CV through attending workshops, events and drop-in clinics. The Careers Zone can provide you with a lot of information on starting your job search along with tips on every stage of the recruitment process, while the Career Fairs can give you a taste of what employers look for.

LUMS has provided me with a fantastic foundation which has given me the confidence to strive for success. Currently, I am working within the financial services sector in Cyprus, providing professional services on a national and overseas scale. My future career goals include achieving a professional qualification, building up and excelling through time.
