My course director, who was always there to help.

Did you do a project, placement or study abroad? What did this involve and what did you gain?

Describe your time at LUMS in three words.

Exciting, inspiring, motivating 

What are your best memories of your time at Lancaster?

I have many great memories of my time at the university, but one of my favourites was helping build the LEGO society from scratch - especially coming up with new ideas for events to get some new members! 

What are the best things about living in the Lancaster area?

I loved how cosy and calm the Lancaster area is - you can even hear the sheep if you live in Cartmel.

What impact has your Lancaster experience had on your career?

While my career may not be directly linked to what I studied, I benefit every day from the transferable skills that I developed during my time at the university, specifically time management, researching and presenting skills.
