Emily Wilson graduates this week from the University of Sunderland alongside over 3,000 other students. Emily, who will receive her degree BA Business Management has managed the remarkable feat of being named the top student across all of the university’s business courses for 2018.

Emily, 21, will graduate with First Class Honours and will be awarded the Ede and Ravenscroft prize for achievement across Undergraduate business programmes.

She said: “I was really pleased to achieve the highest grades across the business faculty throughout the year, but the prize has come as a complete surprise to me and I am thrilled to have been nominated.”

Emily’s achievement is all the remarkable as she worked throughout her time studying at Sunderland, as a skin therapist in a local salon.


Emily added: “I am hoping to build on the various skills I’ve developed whilst studying, all of which will hopefully lead to a successful career in business and management in the future.”
