A place for Laura

The diversity of opportunities at Lancaster has very much appealed to me during my time here. I have tried to make the most of these by taking part in everything from part-time work and volunteering to societies. As a Student Ambassador and Tutor, I've met new people and formed friendships that I otherwise may not have had. The part-time jobs have provided me with the extra income that I worried about having before I came to university, as well as many great opportunities to network and impress interviewers for roles.

Lancaster has helped me achieve all I have wanted and more. I have gained an insight experience at Deutsche Bank during the second year, allowing me to see how an investment bank operates - including experiencing the technology department of the trading floor of the company, which was such a surreal experience!

I spent 10 weeks as an intern at the Royal Bank of Scotland in Edinburgh. This took place during the World Cup, which added an extra element of excitement and bonding between interns. I successfully obtained a graduate job offer. This meant that I had an offer for a job after university before even beginning my final year, which has been such a relief. This was all paid too, allowing me to save for my future.

My advice would be to grab every opportunity you can, as you never know where it may lead. This has led me to uncover key skills, such as work-life balance, time management and communication that I hope will serve me well in my future.
